The Edge

Thanks .......I had checked the rings. next was the grip removal. Does it matter what way the flat faces?

"the flat" You'll need to be more descriptive than that as I'm not sure what you are talking about.

If it's the flat I think you mean, that's just the recock jet on the valve shaft and it doesn't matter how it goes on.

Ah... forgot about his earlier mention... yes Chaos is correct, the flat side of the valve stem can face anyway.. it will probably rotate a bit anways.. one day it could be facing 12 o'clock.. onther day 5....

lots of o-rings.

lots of o-rings.

I separated the lower pistol grip from the upper part and replaced the o-ring. Still a slow sssssssss. A lack of sights is a pain.......shooting is guess work. I dont mind the trigger......seems ok. Battleship heavvvy. Lot of ripe orings on bolt. That shouldn't cause slow continuous leak.
Perhaps the leak is in the inner valve shaft area?

Will do more work when I get replacement o-rings and time.

Do these have any great value these days?

Heres a review. http://www.pbreview.com/products/rev...rod=886&page=4

Most likely your cupseal. The PGs used a VM feedneck but the rest is spyderish . IIRC a spyder Cup speal should work

I picked up a PGI pro locally for 60 bucks. I sold it not long after being unable to cure the leak you describe. I didnt take a ton of time trying to fix it though, I had and have enough guns to keep me happy as it is anyway.

I am leaning the same way. I will keep for about 2 weeks and then probably sell. Much heavier than I thought and I have 2 markers in mind that would be more suitable for my project.

I will tackle on the weekend as far as the fix. I have way too many projects and markers to give a lot of time to this one. Leak is pretty slow..........one could use this as is. I pick up broken airsoft/air guns/paint markers like stray cats.

The cup seal is ok (teflon part on the valve stem) or appears ok.

I have been able to remove the leak from this gun the edge.

I have been able to remove the leak from this gun the edge. I removed the valve and replace the O-rings. I also resurfaced the cup seal and that portion of the valve where the cup seal seats. Just a very light skim off each surface in a small metal lathe. A 1 hour repair job start to finish.

Anyways I am very happy............ I thought this was going to be a project from hell. This gun seems very good and I am interested in selling it if anybody is interested. I would like to get back what I put into it approximately 60 U.S. dollars. I now like the gun but I won an automag on ebay (I was hoping to be out bid)

Much appreciation for the various advice offered.
