mag air leak - help

I'm having an air leak in the bolt area of my automag classic - gun will fire bolt forward but thats it and gun persists to leak everytime trigger isn't pulled. The weird thing is, that when I physically put pressure on the back of the gun the leak will stop and the gun fires normal - what do I need to do to stop the leak? Please help! - thanks!

Check to make sure that you have a rail bushing in the rear hole of the rail... the one that the field strip screw goes into. If that bushing is missing, it can throw off the fit of the body/valve enough to cause the problem that you're describing.

ok - i looked in the hole where the field strip screw is and there was nothing else besides the rail hole and then the hole in the grip frame - there's no metal bushing in there - any suggestions where to get one, other than agd direct?

You may be able to find it locally if you have a good hardware store. I ran a mag on a bronze bushing I found at an ACE hardware for years.

any industrial fittings/fastener place carries them, they might need a file or dremel to propperly coax them into place, but they are carried.

you can also usually find almost all the o-rings you need at any industrial air fittings place.

Sounds like you need to go a size or two smaller on your powertube spacers.
You can get the kits on Ebay, just do an "automag" or "AGD" search.
But heres the kit on AGD's site :
