Some Questions About My 2011 Rail

I got my rail about a couple weeks ago. When I put a tank on, it started leaking from the steel breaded hose, which then I ordered a macro line kit for it. So when I got it, I put it on and put a tank on. I noticed it was leaking air from the body? But I shot it a couple of times and it went away but shot it some more and it came back again.

Another thing when I was shooting it, I felt the frame on the back where the bolt is and it was pretty warm, so I was just wondering if that was normal?

Being warm is normal, but with the leak coming and going, it may be as simple as applying the right amount of lube to the orings on the bolt.

As he said, being warm is normal it's from the friction, where abouts on the body is it leaking?


could be a lube issue, or a oring issue.

You can hear it leaking clearly when u put your ear in the feed neck, but I will try putting some lube on it and see if it will go away and thanks

i would say it is more likely to be over lubed than underlubed. non the less check it out.

if it's leaking in the breach, then it's going to be a bolt oring
