Did you dry-fire? The dwell might need to be changed.

i don't have a chrono, so I don't know the right dwell setting. I shot some paint, but it still leaked. It leaks when the gun is off.

I just did that. The o-ring was perfect so I applied a little dow 33 and it still leaked.

This was everything in the bottom tube of my imp. All o-rings are intact. You tell me what I need to check using this pic

Thanks guys

Edit: They were covered in dow, I just wiped them down for the pic. Where should I lube now?

Also, I have a tapeworm. Could it be a dwell problem? Where should my dwell be. I should set my input pressure to 150 and adjust till I hit field limits? I don't have a chrono, so roughly where would that be?

Ya, Imp noob

Theres another peice in there look inside the front cap hole. Thats the valve body, there are o-rings on it sealing it to the body of the gun. Take off your grip and solenoid tray, remove the silver or gold screw from the bottom of the frame you can now push out the valve body.

By the way you said it's leaking down the barrel for sure?? Dwell has nothing to do with this. The only thing that can cause this are the valve and valve body. Or something on your hammer assembly either the front o-ring or the shaft o-ring. To check that you have to put it back together, gas it up and take out your bolt. Listen to see if it's coming from the slot where your bolt pin connects to the hammer.

ok, found the problem. Spliced o-ring in that thing you just described. I didn't know I could slide that out, I thought it was part of the body.

Could I use a tank o-ring on that? It looks a little fat. Can I jury-rig it, becasue I need to use it and I don't have that fat o-ring. Could I use one from the back of the hammer assembly?
