    Posted: 27 June 2011 at 12:52pm
Okay. Now I have a Tippmann A-5. I had bought it and I have used it and it was fine. It had always functioned perfectly, just the way I had wanted it to. Now yesterday I went to go play a scenario game with my Woodsball unit (L.W Unit) and I begin to hear my A-5 squeak near the top of my air line. The squeaking would intensify until it would stop leaking air and would remain quite. So today I woke up this morning concerned something was wrong with my A-5 I decided to run a maintenance on it to make sure the internals are good and everything. I replace a few O-rings that appear worn out to me and I have the gun with brand new O-rings I re-assembled it carefully to make sure nothing went wrong. I cocked it and fired with no tank attached and everything was as normal. Now I come to put the tank into my gun and air just rushes out of the barrel of my gun. It's a lot of it too. Now I'm a little aggravated and am not sure on what to do next. Any ideas on what the problem may be?

I replaced every O- ring I found on my gun now and I striped it down to the last screw. Every O-ring is replaced and I re-assembled it.

But did you replace the O-ring with a Tippmann OEM part or an after market part?

You did cock the marker before you attached your gas?

I replaced the O-rings to the right size and using the ones that my Tippmann box brought with it. And yes I did cock it before but regardless it releases air. -__-"

I had called customer support and he said it may be a bad air line or maybe theres space bitween the tombstone and the valve line

The valve is the silver air line running from the handle to the middle of the gun right? If so, how can that be blown?

I was also testing out the gun while my tank was at a low PSI, I also heard the A-5 releases air when the PSI is too low.

No. that is the gas line and tombstone. They plug into the powertube/valve assembly.  Check the schematics in the Customer service area.  Call Tippmann back and see what your warranty covers.
