I need help quick! I am going to a game Sunday and have no extra time tomorrow, I just put air to my A-5 and it is leaking air out the barrel!!! I know I should know what is causing that, but it has been awhile since I last encountered that problem, and it was not on my A-5. I do have a Tippmann O-ring kit. I assume it is the front striker o-ring, but I am not sure... Help!

Was it cocked when you put air to it?

Yeah, If it was not cocked when u ared up the valve pin has pressure on it from the hammer, whitch inturn will let air excape out the front of the valve, and out thru the barrel.

Put a good amount of oil down the ASA and try again. Make sure you aren't out of C02 or air because it will leak out of the barrel when the pressure isn't high enough, and if worse coems to worse replace any damaged o-rings.

Thanks for replying all! I have owned this marker since 2002 and I have never seen a low air source cause it to leak out the barrel! I put a new CO2 tank on it and it works great. My new Lapco bigshot works great too... Sorry, but with every thing going on this weekend I panicked that my main marker was going to be out of commission... Thanks!
