The bolt does not really effect any air transfer while it is in its "resting" position which is cocked back. Without more details it will be hard to diagnose this. My first thought though would be the poppit assembly area. If that were allowing air to leak through it would leak up into the bolt area. The only thing that is throwing me is that the leak goes away if the bolt is removed and reinstalled.

yeah i dont really know how to explain it better
i just tried airing it up with the bolt in and it worked just fine now

i dont know, its like a on and off thing, but after it is air up for good it doesnt leak

its weird, but pulling the bolt out doesnt bother me,was just curious if anyone else had the same problem

Have you tried lubing the ram, and maybe a few drops of gold cup oil on the bolt orings?

Also, does the leak stop after you shoot the marker a few times?

It's probably the poppet leaking. Mine leaks all the time when I air it up and stops after i shoot it. Depending how much you've shot the marker, the poppet seal will only last about a year. New poppet seal only cost $10 from DP.

Where does the poppit seal go? Pictures? Im kinda new to the FX.

Sometimes my leak stops after a couple shots, sometimes it doesn't. It just started today and I just sold here on nation so gotta get it fixed quick.
