    Posted: 25 December 2009 at 3:15pm
I have an older .68 Carbine.  I had problems with the gun "freezing over" years ago which was the reason it got thrown in a box in the basement.  I'd like to get back into playing. 
The marker has an expansion chamber on it which forms ice on it within 30 shots. 
 
I'd like to see what I can do to fix this issue and upgrade the marker since I do have some funds now.
Maybe a new barrel and switching over to HPA.
 
Any and all info is greatly appreciated and welcome, just keep in mind I have been out of the game for a long time so if you can dumb it down a little for me.
thanks!

And the switch over to HPA would be as simple as purchasing a HPA tank?

Is there an o-ring kit or anything similar I can get to "spruce up" the marker?

Check the Replacement Parts Guide sticky for o-ring sizes for a carbine.

I bought a number of them off of Ebay. I buy them whenever I see them.
You could try that.
