Hi, im Steve and im new to this forum.

I recently rebuilt my 98 custom. Its an older grey style gun, and it just needed a cleaning and o-rings when i got it.
I replaced the o-rings, and lubed with marvel mystery oil, and reassembled no problem.
At first it was only shooting twice and then not re-cocking. I poured some oil into the hole where my CO2 goes and shot it a couple times as i was told this was a problem. Now that that is fixed, every shot i have CO2 leaking out the bolt, and where the regulator attaches to the gun, not by the handle. Its also coming out the barrel, but a significant amount.
Any ideas? I have a game saturday and really could use the help
Thanks!

  • Disassemble the marker
  • Clean it out completely
  • Replace all the o-rings
  • Lubricate with a paintball oil or an air-tool oil.  (Hoppes #9 is recommended by Tippmann.)

Sorry Steve, but do you mean when you shoot, CO2 comes out the barrel and slot
by the back bolt, but stops until you shoot again?
