Leaking 'Mag!
 
So, I just aired up my first 'Mag, and it leaks. Down the barrel, specifically. I don't know anything about 'Mags, so, can anybody point me in the right direction? It's a classic valve with a Level 7 bolt.

Yep OR replace the spacer with the next smaller one.

I was having an issue with mine. I got what seemed like "bolt stick" after a few shots. I replaced [and oiled] the power tube ORing and it still did it. It happened less but then I went from the .220 spacer to the next one down and it stopped it.

You oiled the heck out of it right? Oil is like a magic potion for Mags and solves something like 70% of troubles..

Dry action is never good, well lubed is always best. That goes for Mags too.:D

Woot!

Be sure to put a couple drops in the asa before each day of play.

Sorry to bump a dead thread, but my mag is doing the same thing. The leak stops when I hold back the trigger. What O ring are we talking about? Could you guys give me a number?
