Hello,

I am a major newb to paintball and need some help. I have 2 minor(I hope not major problems) so far .

One is that I just bought an expansion chamber for my A-5 and there seems to be a minor leak where the big black chamber is and where the cord plugs into. Is there anyway of fixing it? I cant make it any tighter. Its a little leak where you can hear the CO2.

Second, I have a 20 oz CO2 tank and whenever I try to unscrew it before it is empty it from my gun, it seems to lose alot of air. Is that also normal? Its a huge psssssssss sound.

Take the hose out and put teflon tape on the threads then tighten it back in, nice and tight. The tank leak is normal, i suggest getting a spart-parts on/off valve to save all that CO2.

When you take off your tank, while it starts to leak, press on your trigger constantly and unscrew at the same time.  It helps, and its good, try it.
