Sniper valve issue

I am in the process of putting together a 'parts box' sniper 2. I have a stock 2K body, sidewinder, new dye hammer and IVG and a used Rat 3:16 or an ANS valve to use.

I start out with the ans valve, medium valve spring, medium hammer spring. When I first air up, no leaks. The first time I fire it, whoosh, the valve stays open. I turn the pressure down, same result. So, I put in the lightest hammer spring I have, no change.

I then put the rat 3:16 in and get the exact same results.

Do any of you have any suggestions?

Use a stock WGP valve for CO2 it is far more tolerant of higher pressures and freezing unlike all the LP valves you have mentioned.

I have never used ans valves, but the rat 3:16 I have used. I would try this- reverse the valve seal(little plastice piece on the front of valve) lube it and the valve stem well with dow 33 or vasaline, crank the in line pressure up and dry fire several times to seat the cupseal. I have had them dry out if not used and this method has worked well for me to recover valve.

My Maddman Rocket valve does that when the pressure's too low. Try cranking the pressure up to hold the cupseal down tighter.

I agree with hurtcow on this. raise your pressure. The rat 3:16 is intended to run a pressure above 300 PSI, try 325-350.

I think that you need stronger valve spring not weaker... or softer cup-seal material.
