A1 Fly - leaks when breach knob is turned

Stock A1 Fly. When I turn the breach knob to access the bolt I hear a leak. When its turned to the locked position, no leak.

Looking at the back plate I think I hear the leak coming from the left side (LPR side?).

Good chance your ram is going bad if it leaks and seals from turning the knob.

That's what I was afraid of.

Time to get an STR I guess.

If you can find one. The rebuildable mod from Angel-Verse is a good option too if you can't get a hold of the STR.

I know one person that has them, but I've been trying for awhile and he hasn't let any go. Think he just likes holding onto them to say that he has some.

Yeah a few dudes like that- but I know persistence pays off.

Disclaimer: this comment not in reference to recent issues with particular angel shooter. I guess I was lax in use of this sentence.

You should try swapping out the front ram shaft o-ring first.

I've had a few rams that I thought were shot, and that actually fixed the problem. That o-ring gets alot of wear, so sometimes moving it can unseal it enough to cause a leak. It's worth a shot at least.

The rebuildable ram mod is worth a look too. I have only had to rebuild two rams so far, and its a nice option to have.

Yes I am holding on to some rams. I have been buying and repairing a1s and also want to keep some for our tournament in Vegas this October. My team shoots only angels.

I wanted to replace all the o-rings anyways so definitely will do that. If that doesn't fix it, I still prefer getting a STR ram. If that doesn't work out, I'll get the magno ram done with the rebuildable mod.

Thanks for all the feedback guys.
