Lelands leak in my quick changer

Posted this on the CCI page but im trying to get some other opinions

Right now i have 2 brands of co2 powerlets at my disposal in my store. No matter WHAT i do i cannot stop the lelands from leaking. The other brand i have available are the kee ones. I do notice there is a big difference in the lips on the top of the 12 grams with the leland being very flat and the kee having like a step.

Ive changed the puncture seal twice in my quick changer and besides that i dont have any solutions. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

no go on the dime. With it in the quick changer the 12g sits to high for the threads to engage

Yeah try the o-ring trick. It sounds like the lelands are just a tad too short for your changer. I used to have to do that for daisy 12ies. I assume it is a CCI bucket changer?


Edit: Beat me to it.

The problem is that the lelands are shorter(or is it that other brands are longer?). When I made the switch from crossman to leland, I had to replace co2 seals or readjust on many of my 12g guns.

do they make a thicker puncture seal?

im trying to find a perm spacer option or at least perm enough that i can change if i ever cannot get the kee brand.

Yes i just eye balled it and the lelands are noticeably smaller

Yes CCI quick changer

No. It's that using other brands compresses the seal so that it doesn't work with lelands anymore. It's like having your fat brother borrow your good socks and stretch them out so they fall down to your ankles when you wear them to church. Changing out the seal only works if you stick with lelands and swap out occasionally when they are not available. Probably not a viable option for you unless you want to keep a 2nd seal specifically for lelands and swap seals according to the 12g you use.

i like your analogy made me smile But thats good to know that i can simply change the seals eventually. I have a "in theory" endless supply of Kee's as long as they dont change their brand.......I also have about 100 puncture seals so either way ill be alright. Thank you for the advice and making me smile lol
