ugh...need help with a leaky mag
 
Okay, so I've got a situation....

this 68 classic gasses up, and leaks unless I pull and hold the trigger...when the trigger is pulled, it farts but does not fire. Now I replaced all the orings that I saw that were even slightly worn, and to no avail. Can someone narrow down my problem area for me? I'm not really sure where to look? I've checked the on/off, etc... help! thanks!

Sounds like a power tube spacer to me. You either need to move up or down a size... can't remember which. Says on the spacer kit though.

They have the videos before the automag on you tube.
 
They have the videos before the automag on you tube. Nine separate videos I believe. I watched the first three videos and found the answer to my problem on video #3.

A watch these videos for about five or 10 minutes and I was able to fix my automag very quickly after. My problem was a small o ring in the front of the power tube.

see below on the other threads:
" Go to first new post Automag Traning Video, now on paintballcity.org "

I put the entire video on paintballcity.

Here it is.

I watched that the other night after downloading it and as I recall a barrel leak is strictly the Oring inside the front tip of the power tube. The end screws off and there's a small spring and Oring inside and that ring is what seals the gas in until you pull the trigger.


Who would have known that the video would come in handy so quickly.... :D

thanks guys, I actually am familiar with mags so that was the first thing I checked. The fellow I got the valve off of had a pt spacer in that was too small...I shouldn't have assumed that he would have had the right one in, but I did ;) I don't have any others so I used a very this oring to increas the size...seemed to be a temp fix, I just need a spacer kit now to fine tune it. thanks guys,
J
