My Overlord Rx has started to leak out of the cup seal/ puncture pin. I don't know how to fix it and ariakon isn't answering. If this has happened to anyone else I would like to know because then you can help me. I'm starting to wonder whether the overlord was a good choice, as apposed to the tiberous 8. maybe ill just sell this thing and get a tac 8

Disclaimer: I do not have an Overlord RX. I am applying knowledge from my Overlord and Phantom.

Leaking from seal/pin can frequently be caused by a damaged cup seal. The cup seal can be damaged in a number of ways; falling out, snagging or getting shifted around by a 12 gram, or damaged by the venting of a not completely empty 12 gram. I'd try replacing that first, and just be patient before replacing it. The Tiberius 8 is a good choice, but its a lot more expensive, and is a bit more complex and less easy to fix/tinker with than the Overlord.

Best of Luck,

Contact Ariakon directly, they should be able to either order you one, send you a replacement, or put you in touch with a local dealer. Since Ariakon is more of a niche market, like most 12 gram powered markers, you'll have to do more legwork than you normally would.

I fixed it.
bit of a ghetto fix but it worked. I went to my local hardware store and looked for a cupseal, couldn't find one so I bought a rubber washer thing and cut it to fit. well what do you know it worked

Nice. I've always liked 'jury-rigged' type fixes, always gave me a sense of accomplishment. That, and it gives me the chance to use the word 'Mcgyver' as a verb or adjective.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but curious how you can fix a delrin cup seal with a rubber washer? Did you remove the delrin part and mounted the rubber on the metal part?

Have any pic?
