OK, (crosses fingers).

I expected that (sort of), does the old spring work still?

OK, Piller's in here. He knows everything, we should be good. I really just think it's that new spring that's the problem. I'm convinced it's not the On/Off.

Your marker probably just doesn't have enough air to recock but enough to hiss, mine does that too.


Yes, just tried it. The old spring and new blue seal work great.

I would get the spring replaced but we'll see what Piller has to say.

Is it a small leak? Does the leak get progressively worse the more you fire the marker?

Check your regulator piston o-ring and make sure your regulator piston is clean. That can cause a leak even if your on/off is in perfect condition.

But would that affect the sear?

No, it's not small. It's a pretty big hiss I think. It does not get any worse as I fire. Every, or everyother shot does it. And it consistantly stays the same. I know I'll be fine with the old spring, but it just bugs me that my new spring won't work. You know?

I just checked the reg piston o-ring, and it seems clean. I wiped it off and re-lubed it. But it still does it with the new spring. The regulator piston assembly is brand new, I had to replace it a while back because it was leaking.

Also, check my first post. There is a video of the problem.

Thanks guys!

Check the edge on your sear and on your bolt. Are they worn?

Try using a smaller spacer in the powertube.
