Leaky Minimag

My minimag leaks down the barrel, I replaced the powertube o-ring and it still leaks. Any suggestions?

could be a worn boltspring. Order a rebuild kit and rebuild the valve and replace the boltspring.

I replaced the bolt spring not too long ago when my brother gave me the one that came with his parts kit.

3 drops of lube in the ASA, take off barrel, gas it up, fire 10 times, degass, dismantle, 3 drops of oil in power tube, 2 aspirin, check it in the morning.

When I was firing, at about the fifth or sixth shot, it fired twice for one pull of the trigger.

Have you adjusted the trigger pin?

What valve are you using?
Are you using CO2 or HPA?
If using CO2, how is your gas supply connected to the marker?

Without knowing the specifics of your set up.. it sounds like the trigger rod is out too far and hitting the trigger. When the gun is gassed up, there should be a space between the rod and trigger about as thick as a matchbook cover.

That's what I was getting at.

I have never touched the trigger pin but I will check the distance between the rod and the trigger. I was using CO2 through a stock ASA.
Using a stock minimag valve.
