So I went ballin' last weekend and I put a new regulator on my Epiphany (upped Ion) and I got the velocity set at 292 psi and it was shooting 287 fps. I go to the first game and they're counting down 5...4... and on 2 my gun leaks :gunwhore: so I go back to the staging area and work on it. I have one of the guys look at it and he lubes it up and it doesn't leak. I'm getting ready for the next game and it leaks again. :tdn: :tdn: So I take it apart to try to find where it's leaking and one of the little hoses blows off, so I switch it around because where the hose connects to the solenoid it was stretched so I put the stretched end in the banjo fitting and the end that was in the banjo fitting that wasn't stretched on the solenoid. So I put the gun almost back together and I'm aligning the hole in the front of the can with the screw-in point on the frame and it leaks. :tdn: :tdn: :tdn: I can actually move the can the right way and make it leak on command. The only way to put it together without it leaking is to turn the air source off, and then put it together. So I did that and I test fired it and, you guessed it, it leaked after a few shots. :tdn: :tdn: :tdn: :tdn: Any ideas what's wrong with this marker? Maybe it's the rer banjo fitting?
When I get this working I'm selling it and buying an older Etek or a Shocker. :tup:

My guess is it's either the hoses or the fittings.

Might as well replace both *shrug*

Yeah those are my plans so if you know where to get the fitting (5/32 Ion banjo) anywhere other than Paintball avenue that would be great.

Completely different subject: I also got my hands on a spyder for free so I'm going to make it bolt action. I'll post pics in a new topic tomorrow maybe.

Sorry about not updating this... Yea, I bought a replacement 5/32 banjo fitting (the rear one) and it runs honkey-dorey.
It's up for sale in the BST.

That's good its working again. I didn't want to buy it, just wanted to make sure it was fixed for you since the repair center is not open right now.
Coming soon.
