Boxgun leak down the barrel

Just picked a brand new boxgun from Carter. Went to chrono, first 10 shots no issues. Then hissing down the barrel. I switch 12 grams and it dumps the entire 12 gram down the barrel. Bad cup seal? Any suggestion? Thanks.

Man that's rough, I saw your pics of that beauty earlier this week. I'd have to guess you're right about the cup seal. Best bet is to pull her apart and check all the seals...sorry to hear that. Hopefully you get some play time with it soon!

Cheers

Double FYI for paintball rules there should be no "offer" of surrender, its either mandatory surrender at X distance when guy is behind you or no surrender and you get shot in the booty. "offer" of surrender makes for some ridiculous and dangerous john woo tactics.

It's junk. Give you 50 bucks for it . J/k

Check the cup seal to see if its tight. They can back off kind of easily.

Checked the cup seal, re-tightened, still leaks. Hmmm. Maybe back to Carter it goes.

That's weird, Hopefully it's something simple and you don't have to send it in. Good luck.

Check for a crack on the base of the powertube, as well as the condition of the oring on the valve nut.

Don't know what I did, but after 2 - 3 reassemblies, it now doesn't leak. I fiddled with the set screw above the trigger. Noticed when I first got the box gun, had to hold the pump handle forward or gun wouldn't fire. Fiddled with set screw until marker fired without handle pushed forward. All good now. Dry fired about 50 times, no leaks.
