The 09 I've been shooting is serial # 300 something. Will have to take it apart and examine the valve carefully and see if theres any notable differences.

Valve core solution!!! No plasti dip

Phew

I didn't want to be the first one to bring up a dead thread!

Where do I start

1. I own #216 with a bad stem

1.A I think I counteracted the valve core. Hear me out
I backed the hpr, and kept the lpr high like Hans said, and I went to ace hardware to pick up plasti dip, but I also wanted to check out other springs.

My theory is if you have a stronger spring holding it in snugly into the valve seat, it won't matter how imperfect the middle of the stem is, because the spring is pushing the head of the stem to complete flush with the seat

THE PART is spring # 153, at my local ace store in Indiana

, and so far,

ITS WORKING, cycling and no leaks!!! I need more air though, as I have less than a 500 psi and it's not at full speed I will send pictures tomorrow!!!

I have thought of other solutions, like fabricating a small ring inside the seat where it welcomes the head of the stem, and place a flat o-ring, just would have to find away to make it ribbed to hold it In position

1.B Keith said that GOG is looking to come in contact with valve cores in the near future!

2. Now that the valve core problem is gone, I have to figure out why the eyes aren't working!!! No debris in the chamber, and it still cycles

Does GOG have eye's? DLX? I'm desperate for eyes!!! Or eye solutions!

Four solutions seem to work well!

A. GOG Will have the valve stem for around $20, just not yet, here soon

B. find the best way the valve core sits the seat, and maybe get a stronger spring at your local hardware store

C. Plasti-dip fix

D. Have a cnc company make an titanium version for about 50-85$

Would you recommend the plastidip or the spring for the time being?

Here is what I did, I brought the valve core, and the front cap, to my local ace hardware... Bought the the plasti dip, and the $0.60 spring(which best fit my cap and valve core)... I went home and found out I only needed the spring.

And they have an awesome full-refund "program", lol

P.s the spring is #153 at my local hardware store. I don't know if this would be the same # in good ol South Carolina

Well of course Ace didn't have anything close to the right size. And when I got the gun in the mail, the guy I got it from didn't even have a spring in it... So I'm about to go on an epic journey around SC to find a spring

GOG has springs for sale for somewhat cheap! Sorry to hear about ace not having springs! Makes me feel like an ***...

If the valve core leaks, turn the valve core around 1/4 turn until you expose the weakness of the valve core the plasti-dip works fine.

GOG also may have new corrective valve cores ($20 if they have them)

Pming this info just to help!
