Creed leaks

My Creed leaks on the inside, above the trigger frame. It's a very small leak ,and it doesn't affect how it shoots. I'm not sure I have the latest upgrade parts inside, and have no idea who to call to get them.

Any help?

Check out your valve body orings. If you put pressure on the bolt pin when the gun is aired up, does the leak get worse? If so you should swap your outer valve orings. I would put some dow55 on the new ones to help swell them up for a good fit.

It could also be from the noid/air hose fittings. You'll have to take the grip off to test that one out.

Could also just be a bad oring on your poppet. The poppet in the valve needs to be greased here and there. If it's not and dries out, air will leak out the back of the poppet stem.

Leak doesnt get worse when I push the bolt forward. Doesnt seem to change at all. I'll check the other 2 options.

How do I tell if I have the latest parts ?

The main latest part would be the LP popit. The stem of it is metal. The old popits were delrin. Double check the 15x2 orings on the LPR body as well. I am always available on Skype or by PM if you would like further help. Mstrkey did a good job on those others as well. I would check all of the above. The only real way of know where the leak is coming from is by taking off the frame. Let me know how it goes.

If I can pull the bolt and see the end of the stem, then mines delrin. How fast/ where can I get the new one?

Got my new poppet in today. Is there a video that shows the replacement steps?

There might be one in the video thread. It's not too tough. Once you have it in, you'll need to retune your regulators since your gun will run on lower pressure now.

Oh and remember to grease it up before you put it in

If you still have leaking issues, a good old spray bottle of water with some dish soap in it is a handy tool for locating leaks. Just don't spray the electronics

Parts got here fast, great communication with support for my problem. My Creed shot amazing today, as usual !

I won't be buying the vanguard demon, however, just because I think the name's stupid. It's just how I roll .

Thanks for all the help !

Ok, I realize it's been 5 months, but I haven't had a chance to play much since I last posted my fix. Got to the tourney, chrono'd up and shot some before the first game but I could still hear the leak. So, I'm standing at the chrono, trying to pinpoint the leak. I rip off a stream of paint and PHSSHHHHHHH !!!, whatever was leaking opened on up, balls spit out the barrel until I shut the air off. At least it happened at the chrono and not on the field. Pulled my '05 Alias outa the bag and played the tourney.

By that description, any idea what blew? And do I need to just send this thing to someone to fix? It's never been right since I pulled it outa the case from day 1. Shot great, but always had the leak until it blew. I replaced the poppitt btw.

That sounds like the poppet cap o-ring or the rear 15x2 on the LPR body.

I'm going to go with the poppet cap like Reaper said. That would indeed cause balls to fly out the end of the gun since esentially it's like having the valve open all the time. Easy fix. While you have the poppet out you may as well regrease the inner poppet oring, and stem a bit as well.
