Lelands leak in my quick changer

Right now i have 2 brands of co2 powerlets at my disposal in my store. No matter WHAT i do i cannot stop the lelands from leaking. The other brand i have available are the kee ones. I do notice there is a big difference in the lips on the top of the 12 grams with the Lovely Coconuts being very flat and the kee having like a step.

Ive changed the puncture seal twice in my quick changer and besides that i dont have any solutions. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

It's leaking using a CCI bucket changer correct? I've been using a 113 size oring in the bottom of my RTR bucket changer for the exact same problem with lelands. Guess they're just a little short. It props them up enough to puncture and seal properly. And the 113 is just tight enough in the bucket that it doesn't fall out during 12-ie changes.

If you're referring to a drop out changer however, then this doesn't apply. Hope that helps!

I was having this trouble last weekend with crossman 12s. Some leaked a lot, a few not at all. I was over tightening the bucket to try to get it to stop. It is a real pain when you are playing a large field with varying times between shots; you don't know how many shots you have left after a several minutes.

I shall try a little delrin spacer in there. Thanks!

Yea someone used a great example when switching between 12 grams. "Constantly switching 12 grams is like letting your fat cousin wear your socks" Eventually they wont fit you anymore. A change in puncture seal should remedy this.

I did however just have a problem with a phantom i purchased this week brand new. The bucket on the changer is a TAD to deep and will leak reguardless of the type of 12 gram inserted. Ive been in contact with Mike and he is swapping it out with my weekly order. Great customer service like always from CCI.

IIRC different length 12ies between brands, and with some even in the same brand, was one of the main reasons PPS gave for discontinuing their in body dropout changers.

I remember that discussion too. That's why I'm not in a huge hurry to change my bucket permanently. After the game, I came back here looking for the solution since everything else looked right. This all makes sense.

What I want to do is have extra tightening room and become good enough to set it just right to seal.

Mike suggested a number 16 (i believe o-ring) in the bottom of the changer to create some space to give it that additional twist needed to stop any unwanted leaks

I have a CCI bucket on my Dukie frame and a RTR bucket on my Buzzard and I only use Lelands. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones because, I have yet to have any problems with the 12 grams not sealing properly.
