i bought a new A5 about a month ago and went out with some buddies to test it out and i really love the gun it shoots amazing but then i got home and was dissassembling it to clean becuse we played for a good 6 or 7 hours and a washer and O-ring fell out i read the manual and used the diagrams in the manual and put everything back together as it was shown in the manual and yes i made sure to put the washer first then the O-ring and i made sure to lubricate the O-ring before re installing but then after i re assembled the gun and hooked up my HPA tank there was an air leak that seemed to be coming down the barrel so i got an A5 O-ring kit and replaced every internal ring in the marker and made sure to lubricate every one but i still have a leak any suggestions??

he said that the plunger wasnt sealing properly and he disassembled the valve and in side the valve there is a little brass looking washer that kinda looks like a top hat and has a small ridge on one side and he said the side with the ridge is supposed to be up so that the plunger can seal against it and i had it flipped upside down and it wasnt allowing it to seal properly so he swithced and and put a small drop of oil on it and put a little bit of pressure on it inside the valve body to seat it and he put it back together and ever since it has worked perfectly
