problems

i have a vsc and yesterday i was playing, went to take a 12gram out of the cci changer and the 12gram was stuck and some little metal pieces and an oring came out. the oring would not stay in so i am assuming the metal pieces held it in in some way.
also i have a 3.5 and a 4 oz tank. the 4 oz screws in fine but i screw the 3.5 in and it doesn't air up the phantom at all.

so is my cci changer now just junk? and is that common on 3.5 oz tanks, it is an older brass eagle tank.

You know that it is filled for sure...?

Than, besides the obvious, people do talk a lot against the brass eagle tanks and say its dangerous. So it could just be a error with the tank. Personally, mine works like a charm.

If you toss up pics of the parts and where they came from I could most likely tell you what was going on and help you correct it.

Sounds like you might have cross threaded the bucket changer and mashed the pierce pin with the edge of the 12 gram. I assume the o-ring is the seal around the pierce pin. This "o-ring" is white, flat and about 5/16" in diameter.

If the threads are still good on the bucket changer, you can replace the pierce pin assembly. Go to the CCI site and order one. They don't cost much at all.

As for the 3.5 oz, sometimes the post in the center of the asa isn't long enough to depress the valve pin on some older style tank valves. If the valve on your tank is bad, I suggest having your local pro-shop put an on/off valve in the tank for you.
