There's an o-ring inside the power tube. You can take the brass tube tip off with a nickel to get at it. There's one on the tip itself (which usually doesn't cause a problem), and then there's one deep inside just sitting there. You can take it out with your smallest allen wrench.

Is it a constant leak down the barrel or a 'sprinkler' sounding leak, like 'sput..sput..sput..'?
its a constant leak down the barrel untill the trigger is held on ..... after installing new orings and a new spring, the gun now fires, but still leaks down the barrel alot, untill trigger is held on , then it stops.....

You need a spacer kit.

Compare your lvl 7 build up with this picture


You should have a oring then the spacer then the PT tip with a oring installed.

Replace your powertube o-ring. Liquid CO2 can damage o-rings, making them porous.
Use a shorter spacer.
Use oil.

O-ring goes in first, then carrier, then powertube tip.
Make sure your bolt stem isn't scratched/dented.

ok...got it to seal up nicely, was firing great, and shootin' hard , velocity was obviously up too high ..... was puttin balls thru it to crono it and it kinda exploded, froze up in my hand ( was using hpa, not co2) .... this is the results... the twist lock barrel was shoved completly out the front, dammaging the twistlock grooves beyond repair...the bolt is dammaged ( dented- kinda mushroomed out) ....and this happened inside the body...- i assume this body is now junk ? .... sad.... 8(










- i assume this body is now junk ?
