My nipples are leaking! (Tank reg problem)

So i was messing around with my gun in the backyard and i noticed my fill nipples little rubber top popped off. (That's weird, it never does that on it's own). So i put it back on, *POP*.... Off again.. It looks like air is leaking out the nipple... That's not supposed to happen, right? No.

It's Ninja Standard 4500 PSI reg. I took it off the tank and took some pictures. I've only used this tank twice and not inflicted any damage. I think it may be a manufacture problem.

PS: I noticed condensation inside my barrel after shooting it.

If the fill nipple is leaking the o-ring underneath it could be damaged. Even on a new tank it can happen with a bad o-ring or some debris passing over it from the fill station.
Simply remove it, with the air system degassed of course, and change out the o-ring and use some teflon on the fill nipple threads and reinstall. Don't bottom out the fill nipple though, you'll crush the o-ring and inhibit the movement of the shuttle valve.

The condensation has nothing to do with your issue. Condensation occurs during rapid firing as the air passes through the regulator into the marker it cools it down. If it was warm out, and I imagine it's starting too, condensation is extremely common when you're just firing continuously.

Alrighty, i'm picking up a new fill nipple at hustle with a new ORing as well just to be sure, However i checked the Oring before and it was completely fine. I have pictures but i can't seem to post them here.

You won't always see a problem with the oring. it may be a very small chip allowing air to pass through. make sure you lube the oring when putting it on the strut.

As for lube on the oring, make sure it is 100% silicone base, no oil.
