So I played an indoor game with some friends in an old house the other day (major fun, try it!) and soon after, I started hearing a faint air leak near the tombstone. When I got home, I cracked it open to check for any bad o-rings and didn't find any. When i put it back together and connected the air to see if I fixed it, it started leaking big time. There's a huge air leak somewhere around the tombstone/barrel adapter. I'm thinking it's the valve, but I'm having a helluva hard time pulling it out of the front bolt.

For the record, it's a relatively new marker and I use HPA.

Ideas? Suggestions?
Thanks all!

Pulling the valve out of the front bolt? Im utterly confused there. Im thinking youre calling something the wrong name. Refer to the parts diagram in your manual.

Most likely you messed with the o-ring in the valve that seals against the tombstone adapter. If you removed that o-ring, did you forget to put the washer in with it? Did you put the washer in FIRST then the o-ring?

Yea, the tombstone O-ring is leaking. That O-ring has to be flawless and the surface on the tombstone that rests against that O-ring has to be nice and smooth. Even if the O-ring looks perfect it can be defective. Replace the O-ring and oil the new one before installing the tombstone.
I've never seen anyone own the woods because of what marker they use.
