Leak at QEV/RAM

Hey guys,
I have a Worrbladed WGP BlackMagic and it sounds like I have a slight leak where my QEV is mounted to the rear of my planet eclipse RAM. I've tried teflon tape which seems to kind of work if i screw the QEV all the way tight, but it eventually loosens up a little a begins leaking again. I noticed that there was some type of goo/material that was used to seal the threads before. Anyone have any idea what that is?

blue loctite 241 strength. or some other light thread sealant. stay away from the more normal red loctite, way overboard for any use in paintball.

you also have to make sure the thing cure/dry, usually takes a day to do that

I use blue loctite on all of my air fittings. No teflon threads or other eye-sores.

If you use Teflon, you run the risk of it getting into the moving bits of the ram. Like those guys above said, blue Loctite is your best solution. Use it lightly, and don't go overboard, or you'll run into issues.

I usually use a small o-ring instead of loctite.

make sure the area is clean. u may need a q-tip and parts cleaner. then alpie just a slight drop of blue loctite. leave it for a few hrs and hopefully its works out for you.
