    Posted: 09 October 2005 at 11:05pm

I have a 98c with an Repsone trigger and expansion chamber installed.  My marker started to leak C02 right where the expansion chamber meets to marker.  It seems like CO2 is leaking from the gun.

Need help.

I attached a pic showing where it leaks when I attach the CO2.

There are no threads where it leaks.  See the pic.

Isn't that just an expansion chamber w/ standard ASA connected to a vert. adapter?

That is what the part looks like.  I bought the gun used off ebay two years ago and it worked fine until last week.  Do I need a new one?

 See the ASA threads on the chamber body where it connects to the vert. adapter?  Check the o-ring there and make sure it's screwed on tight.

You mean these threads.  See PIC

What does the O Ring on the chamber look like?
