400 psi? That's your problem

Need at least 800+

I had a similar problem using a tank reg that was putting out 600 psi. Switching to 800 psi+ solved my problems.

OK I will give it a try. another question is there suppose to be a spring holding the power tube oring in place? When I took the brass piece off the tip of the valve their was a spring and an oring in that order. I dont think that makes a good surface for that oring to seal against but is that right?

Yes, that's the original setup. They replaced the spring with the "power tube spacer". Power tube spacers come in a kit ....



You could cut your own. One of the five spacers will work in any given mag, once you find it, it doesn't change. The spring probably doesn't help with operation at low feed pressures either.

The lawn sprinkler effect is described and diagnosed in the automag tech videos. i cant remeber what the answer is but it is there form sure.

400 psi is definately not enough for any reasonable amount of recharge. its enoug to fire but you will be waiting for trigger resets between shots.

That would be a leaking on/off top. There shouldn't be any air to come out the barrel with the trigger held down, but it leaks by and lifts the bolt. If the orings are new, post a pic of the on/off, you may have the pin in upside down or just a weird aftermarket one. Higher input pressure might help seal the new orings too. Mags below 500 psi are real squirrels sometimes.
