Leaks usually are not normal....

Run some oil through the gun. You never know, that may be all it takes to make it stop.

Is it normal? Did you ever hear that leak before?  Squirt a few drops of oil in the ASA and dryfire the marker. If that doesn't fix it, we'll talk about other trouble shooting ideas.

Also, cock the gun before you air it up.

EDIT: with the safety on.

All the 0-rings good? I wouldn't think they would be a problem, but you never know. One of them might have gotten pinched or something.

Since you had to remove your valve in order to put it in the new powertube, I'll bet your valve o-ring needs to be oiled. Happened to me before.
