Here it is plain and simple, my bottom of my ASA is leaking. It's not a teeny tiny leak either, I can hear it without putting my ear close to the gun and I can feel the air coming out with my finger if I place it right on the source of the leak. Do I need to put on some new teflon tape or do I need a new ASA?
Any suggestions are appreciated
Thanks

Is it leaking at the little hole on the bottom of the ASA? If so, you need a new tank O-ring. If it is leaking around the air fittings, then you need to replace the tephlon tape.

I haven't changed the tank O-ring in a few months so that's probably it and the leak is coming from the little hole at the bottom of the ASA.

Then it is your tank O-ring. Just replace it and you will be fine. I know I have a huge problem with my ASA. It eats O-rings like you wouldn't believe. I think I have to replace it every other time I attach my tank.

If you need tank orings, look at tankorings.com, they have good prices. $5 shipped for 100. That's only 5 cents each. At that price you will be offering o-rings to people.
