I purchased Four new A5's.    I'm having the same problem with two of them.  About 1500 rounds through each.  When I screw on  Co2 tanks they blow out the barrel.  Full Co2 tanks now empty.Cry  The guns are cocked,  that does not help. 
 
What is the "Tombstone" ?
 
Too new to the sport and markers to know the buzz words.
 
Is there a tear down diagram/ proceedure on this site?
 
Thanks

I tore down one.  The valve O-Ring is broke part# 02-72.
 
I found the tombstone latch released and the Tombstone adapter was out of the marker body about 3mm.
Maybe that caused the O-Ring failure?
 
Thanks

One of the take down pins also holds the tombstone in place; it should not be able to move as long as the pin is present.  Make sure the A5s have all take down pins in place as missing this one could lead to problems if the tombstone latch is accidentally released under pressure.  (Also check for damage/proper installation.)

Oh and thanks for asking the right question.  (I.e. asking about instructions.)  With all the people who whine and expect us to provide every answer instantly despite incorrect descriptions of the problem and the fact that being on here is a hobby not a job; it is much appreciated when someone asks us to help them help themselves.

Can we make this a sticky?
