Lone_Eagle. This is my 13 year olds marker. All orings on all internals have been recently changed.
It's the weirdest thing, I would describe it as more that the tank doesn't seem to seat properly right away rather than unscrews (although I did tell the little dude it seems to unscrew, so my bad, lol). You screw the tank in as far as it seems to go, slap your mag in, prime the cocking lever fire off about 3 shots then 'click', won't fire. At this point you give the tank another half to 3/4 of a turn into the ASA, re-prime and voila... no more issues.
The bonnet is tight and it doesn't seem to have any play. Tell you though, once that tank seats properly it holds in place like dynamite and is very difficult to remove until the tank is empty as it should be.
