Very odd problems.

Hey guys,
I have been having problems with my critical quest. Basically, the gun starts leaking through the barrel whenever I shoot after I lower my LPR down past 110, and then, even when i have my LPR there it's cycles slowly and I have bolt stick. I am on factory settings, and I'm using hater sauce. Anyone know whats up?

Thanks alot

The Critical bolts are known for being quite a tight fit, which may explain the slow cycle despite the slightly higher than recommended LPR pressure. Might be worth getting a handful of each type of o-ring on the bolt and bolt pin, and switching o-rings until you find a combination that allows the bolt to move easily, but without leaking.

For air to be leaking down the barrel - when the bolt is at rest presumably? - it suggests that either the front bolt pin o-ring or the front bolt o-ring are leaking.

i would like to add a side note to this: if you do what uziel says and fit the orings, you will have not only increased performance but the rings will last longer as well- better fit = less wear.
Personal Responsibility is never obsolete.
