leak...

just bought a mag from my field owner. was working perfectly when i got it. as soon as i got it home i just did the basic stripping to see what the bolt & power tube looked like. when i put it back together it started to leak. as soon as i air it up it starts to vent down the barrel. if i hold the trigger the leak stops. the o ring on the power tube tip looks fine as does the one under the spacer. what else could be causing this type of leak?

Well I think that pretty definitively answered my question. I'll be replacing power tube o-rings. Hope that does the trick.

Okay! Good to know, I've greased every marker I've owned. But, new to Mags. I did grease the rings on the Mags I have in the last 2 days. I'm assuming I should clean it off now?

only grease in a mag is on the spring pack to keep it from rusting
