Splatmaster Rapide
 
I have a Splatmaster Rapide, that I`m trying to fix for a friend. Upon opening up the marker I discovered it is missing the CO2 face seal. Is there anywhere I can purchase one?

i don't think there is supposed to be one there.

There is no seal on the Rapide, only a puncture pin.

Back in the day we used to put silicone sealant there around the piercing pin. It may not work very well, but it makes you feel like you're doing something. :)

What keeps the CO2 from leaking then?

Nothing. It leaks.

I don't know why, but that just makes me laugh!

Aww I was gonna say magic. It's the way it pierces the cap of the c02. It does it just right.

Funny. I always assumed Rapides CAME with the seals, but they were just always missing because they felt out!

Like the Splatmasterss. I KNOW they came with the seals, but they usually fell out by the second game. You could still use it, it just meant screwing it in, fast and tight, and it would usually hold good enough.

Gurnseys probobly just said "screw it" with the rapide. No point in adding them, if they are going to fall out... ;l)
