Wow, looks like the steel washer that holds the spring back as the bolt goes forward came loose, I've never seen that happen before and I'm pretty sure it doesn't happen often at all, you might be able to get if fixed but if not used bodys like that usally run about $20-30.
Can you get pics of the bolt and barrel? and have you taken the gun apart to assess the damage?

Damn. If it wasn't polished, I'd offer ya a direct feed straight across. I could use that.

the dammage to the body is excessive ( and i just polished it too ) .....its like a steel sleeve inside ( that the spring rests against) came loose and slammed forward....aparrently the twist lock pin did not give way , so as the steel sleeve slammed forward it in turn slammed the barrel forward , causing the twistlok pin to dammage the channel on the barrel ( which actually flew out of the body)....the bolt is kinda mushroomed on the edges inside.....

Wow, again, the barrel is probably still usable but the bolt I can't tell, what part mushroomed?
This is bizarre, it's almost like somehow the entire tank pressure was let into the dump chamber, I can see the spring retaining washer coming loose *maybe* but no way the valve should have enough force to deform the bolt under normal circumstances should it?

Have you broke down your valve to make sure everything's how it should be inside? and was the trigger pull really hard after you got the leak fixed?

Yeesh! The overpressure relief should've kicked in a long time ago.

The only benefit of the Diamond Labs reg would be saving a few ounces. All AGD stuff is the highest quality you can find. Many would argue that everything else is a downgrade.

Did you use the original piston that was in your AGD regulator and move it to the Diamond Labs regulator? The reason I ask is because the AGD regulator piston has a blow off valve as already mentioned by b-cuzz. I wonder if someone made a slug piston and tossed it in there.

needless to say i need a cheap body .......anyone got one ...... 8(


i bought the diamond labs valve from spawnsharks it was on a minimag valve set up .....i ended up using reg and powertube assembly from that valve, i added the bolt and spring from the leaky set up, aired it up with a 235 spacer , and it was shooting fine ..... then i think it hot shot as i was attempting to adjust the velocity down , and then blam .... destruction .....

- the inside part that goes down into the power tube is deformed as it will not go back down into the power tube now .... everything in the valve looks like it should .... 8(
