Mag leak diagnosis help FIXED THANKS

Got a new mag off longbeard*EDIT* it was advertised as leaking, i knew what i was getting: and i air it up, and it leaks bad through the gt grip. i bypass it and go directly into the valve and it seals fine after a bit of oil. then i go to shoot it and the trigger will not recock and air rushes out the barrel. Do you know what ring/part specifacally i would need to change out. i only have a used set of rings from my last rebuild and i dont want to change them all bc its sealed now until i shoot. Thanks for the help.

If its not resetting and leaking, reset the bolt with a barrel swab.

Remove the valve and check the length of the bolt spring and see if when its on the bolt its 1/4" or more longer that the bolt. It sounds like your spring is weak and not resetting the bolt properly.

Another problem could be body alignment. Look for the rail bushing as need4reebs said. Also check the front frame screw and field strip screws are hand tight only.

Possibly the barrel detent is to tight, throwing the body alignment off, remove the barrel and try a few shots.

Conserve air it might take a minute to figure this one out, lol.

pics up the assembly as it sat in the gun. also the sear has some rust but the edges seem sharp and unaffected and erm a little embarassing but this pin next to the sear has fallen from somewhere, rail i think.

the rail as it sits now. the barrel pin is in and the bolt spring seems to have some life to it.

Might also be the powertube spacer being too short, try the next size to see if it fixes the problem.

In the on/off assembly, you do have a small teflon oring in there that fits inside the larger oring pictured, right? AGD calls this the "top" area of the on/off area but when you assemble, it would actually be in the bottom of the stack of parts and goes inside the larger oring pictured.
