I posted earlier about an air leak and was told to switch the #9 rammer o-ring. Thanks for the advice, but a quick question about this. I have an o-ring universal kit that I use and it appears that if I were to compare the #9 o-ring in the kit with the diagram of O-rings in the back of the manual, they are different sizes. If I were to match up an actual o-ring with the size in the manual it would be a #7. Most times the diagrams of O-rings in the manuals are actual size. Is this not the case for the Ego manual and should I be using the #7? I know this is probably a dumb question, but I still have my air leak after switching these out and wonder if this could be the problem...using the wrong size. Thanks again.

So I'm doing a thorough cleaning of my gun and I see this down in the rammer bore... Any hypothesis it explanation for this? It's wearing anno away for about 3/8-1/2" down from the end, it's just hard to get a good angle to get a picture of it. Could this cAuse the gun to not have a good seal on the return stroke thus making me need a more open rear SFR. I'd imagine so. Only thing is how do you fix something like this?

I would also match up to the original oring on the rammer.

Which end? Towards the front or rear of the rammer tube?

someone said it sounded like the tournament lock is on, and i took off the grips and there is a little red button and i pressed it and nothing happened? is that the tournament lock? and if so how long do i hold it down for?

thanks
Zach
Yes, there should be a red button on the board. You need to turn the gun on and go into the parameters. Then hit the button. It will give you more to choose from when scrolling thru them.

Towards the front, where the last oring on the rammer should be sealing once the bolt is complete forward and it's going to be on the return stroke.
