Invert mini problem help please.
Ok so my mini has been working and I just played a few games Sunday and got home to shoot around and heard my mini was leaking down the barrel so I changed all the orings on the bolt guide poppit changed the seal on it checked the selanoid it's fine all orings are new and lubed but can't stop the leak. Does anyone know what it could be. I screwed the velocity all the way in and backed it out regulator all the way in then out still leaks. Need help to fix it I'm angry lol. Also it's a v2 mini

One of two things I can think of, either the poppet is sticking or the little piston in the noid is sticking. You can carefully open the noid and free it, from memory, I'm sure there is a small opening in the bottom of the noid where your smallest allen key (hex key) will fit to just give it a nudge, 99% sure I did that when my mini decided to do the barrel leak thing.
If you open it be very careful those screw heads are rather soft and can strip easily.
My memory may be a little hazy, my Minis have been in storage and it's been about three years since I opend one up.

Check the large oring on the guide assembly. It is labeled as the #25 oring in this diagram...

hmmm you'd think resetting the poppet would fix it, have you tried clicking the noid without air?

Try turning eyes off with no air or paint and click it ONLY 10 times.

One more thought... Is the spring labeled 79 still in the valve assembly?

Try a fresh battery

Tried the battery and yes the spring is there. I'm gonna check the oring #25 I didn't do that one. I did all the orings and did the 10 click thing but still leaks. I'm gonna order a new oring kit the one I had I've had it for about 3 years now.

The "more advanced" test is dangerous, so listen closely...

First... And MOST important, have someone standing by to help you get you finger back out of your marker by removing the air supply.

Second... Do *NOT* have a battery in the marker. We are not firing it, we are simply looking for leaks.

Third... Air up the marker. To conduct this test read the entire paragraph and then follow these steps.. Place your finger into the breech and cover the tip of the bolt.

Results and what they mean:

If you get a pressure build up, and the bolt does *NOT* move forward, then you have a leaking poppet.

If you get pressure build up and the bolt moves forward then you have a leak in the #25 oring. As a note, this will happen quickly, and you will likely get your finger pinched. It *WILL* be painful, so have a plan to extricate your digit. (I didn't the first time, I was alone, and it took nearly 5 minutes worth of rather painful work to remove the tank, a 16th of a turn at a time.)

If you get no pressure, and the leak continues, then the #25 orings are suspect, as are the 017 (I think) on the outside of the bolt or the #28 orings on the bolt guide.

Dont know why i find this so friggin funny. But thank you.
Just a thought why not use a remote with a slidecheck.
Or have your friend stick his finger inside.

I did the finger thing it dosent work. I'm just ordered a new players kit to replace all the parts and find the problem.
