Yield and Overcome...
Phantom dumps air down barrel on gas up. (cupseal)
OK, so I picked up a used Phantom at a deep discount from a PBN agglet. Arrived yesterday, looking good...pump stroke nice and smooth. Been used a lot, clearly. Attached a 3.5oz to the VSC adapter...pumped, shot, pumped, <blooosh> the entire tank vented out down the barrel.
Temp was cool (about 40 degrees) and I have no idea what the velocity may be set at. Any ideas from the experts?

Check the valve and cup seal area.

Ghost with the most
Make sure it still has a valve spring in it. As the others have said, ensure the cupseal is firmly threaded on to the power tube as well. But I bought an SL-68 II for a song from a kid once who complained that it leaked constantly. It had no valve spring in it at all.

Maybe I put 1 12gr in the marker before I take it apart, but every marker I've bought I took apart en inspected all the parts and seals (most markers I buy do leak a bit ).
