Major leak

I cleaned my gun and I might have mess up something up in my Asa. When my tank is in with the air off its fine but when I turn it on there is a leak that sounds like the release of air right after you fill your tank up. Any suggestions or help are appreciated.

Well of course it's not going to leak if you haven't aired your gun up yet, because it's still in the tank!

Anyways, make sure you tighten your asa and air transfer tube. If that's not the issue, it could be your oring on the tank's fill nipple, inspect that first because it's the easiest. If that oring is ok then revert to the "Anyways, make sure....." sentence.

O ring on the end if the air tank is my guess. If not there, then check o ring on top of the regular to see if its torn or leaking up top. If its out the bottom of the ASA, then its the o ring on the tank.

Did you remove or loosen the ASA from the grip body?? You probably dont have the o-ring seated correctly where the lower air transfer tube meets the ASA.

If I put the asa on before the bottom part of the air tube the tube won't go in all the way and it leaks.



But if I put the air tube in first the leak stops but the asa is loose.

I get this same issue. The way I found that fixes it is take your asa off, then tighten your transfer tube halfway. Then, put your asa on and tighten that half way, then tighten your transfer tube a little more and then your asa a little more, keep repeating that till your asa is flush with the bottom of the grip frame, then proceed to tighten your transfer tube as far as it can go(transfer tube should be near flush).
