today i was using my dm8 and while in game play i got a leak running straight thru the barrel. turned off my air and turned back on was still leaking. started shooting and it stopped leaking and shot fine, then went back to leaking and then back to shooting.... Any ideas before i start replacing all o-rings? Thanks in advance.

Happens, this sometimes happens when the bolt is dry have you relubed it?


• If air is leaking through the bolt tip, remove the bolt
kit from the marker and replace the #014 O-ring
located inside the tophat. Be sure the rear sail
bumper is a #111 and in good condition.
• If air is leaking from around the bolt, replace the
#017 located inside the cylinder and the front #020
on the outside of the cylinder

this normally does the trick basically 3 orings 014 and 017 inside the tophat and then 017 inside the can

90% chance it's the smaller/rear of the two internal tophat o-rings (014)
