Your marker should come fully assembled. The one in the bag is extra. Best way to test is to attach an air tank and cock the marker. If air doesnt leak you are good to go!

Good luck.

can I leave co2 connected to gun or does in need to be disconnected when done shooting? I have one that when I disconnect it I can still hear co2 leaking from bottle, not sure what to do about it

thanks

I would recommend disconnecting the air tank. Otherwise the marker will still stay charged and spring will remain cocked weakening the spring over time. Also for safety.

Is the air escaping after you completely unscrew it or just during? If it is just during the unscrewing, that is normal. If it is after, then the tank has an issue and contact where ever you purchased it to see if they will replace it.

To piggyback on what Hades said, sometimes the pin-valve in the CO2 tank can get stuck open a bit, usually it's due to a machining burr or the like. You can try wiggling the pin back and forth a little with a pen cap or something similar. That might stop the leak if it is indeed leaking when sitting there on its own.

Isn't the black oring from bag for the barrel ??? It shows one in diagram however there is not one installed at least that's how mine was and what I did with it , not sure if that's correct but going by diagram it fits and works and that's where its been since
I also had a spare tank oring the clearish/white in my bag too .

I have 2 guns (twin boys) and both tanks have a leak. I got one of them to stop by pushing the pin back in a few times and getting it to reseat. the other I still couldn't get it to do it even after trying to reseat the pin. I guess I need to try and replace tank?

as for the o ring. my black one came in gun, I just had a small white one that I think is a spare for the co2 tank?

thanks for help
I really appreciate it

The small white one is a spare tank o-ring. As for the leak in the second tank, take it somewhere to get it filled. The act of getting it filled again will often flush whatever is preventing the seal out of the valve and you'll be good.

Also, you may already know this, but I'll say it anyway to make sure. It's best to "shoot down" the markers while unscrewing the tanks from them. Make sure there's no paint in them (remove hopper and barrel if possible) and fire the marker while unscrewing the tank. It'll help prevent stuff from getting stuck in the tank valve and it'll save you on the tank o-rings in the long run as it reduces the pressure put on the o-rings when removing the tanks from the air supply adapter on the marker.

I'm a spammer with nothing interesting to add to the conversation.
