Dragon intimidator w/ evil front block

Im not sure if its just because of a bad quality front block but the fitting where the internal hose plugs into leaks! the fitting is alot smaller than what originally came off but the same circumference. What can i do?

Sounds like maybe you could use a new barb fitting and hose. Have the threads on the front block been mangled at all?

no i bought the front block new fron ansgear to replace the factory one. it leaks around the hose. If i hold the hose in a certain postion then its ok but once you start shooting it leaks. Like i mentioned before, the fitting is alot shorter than the original but i dont think that would be the problems without a major recall since they first came out

If the hose is stretched from use with the previous barb, it'll probably leak, have you tried new hose?

Heat your hose with a flame lightly and it should shrink a bit
