    Posted: 26 January 2006 at 1:13pm
Just yesterday I got the Tippman A5 that I bought on ebay. This morning I tried to install a tank of Co2 but it would constantly leak at the tank adapter to point I could see the Co2 spraying into the room. The auction stated that it was "brand new" yet it came with this problem. I would like to know if an O-ring is supposed to be in the tank adapter, there is nothing there. Thank you.

There is supposed to be an o-ring on the tank. If you're having leakage problems then drop a tank o-ring into the ASA and then screw in the tank.

And just remember. Ebay auctions are just as truthful as an army recruiter.

Wow I did what The Guy suggested and it actually worked! I just put a tank's O-ring onto the ASA/tank adapter and there was no leakage. However, the tank does not screw in all the way, but I'm happy. Thanks!

Was there an o ring on your tank to begin with? If yes then i think it will be damaged, This can happen when you take the tank off incorrectly.

was there an o-ring on the tank itself? and if it does, it may have been leaking cuz you didn't put oil on the tank oring before screwing on.

Why do you always say what other people say?
