Where is is leaking from? If it is from the fitting, remove the button head screw and place a drop of oil on the o-ring. Be sure to push the macro line in as far as it will go. Also, check the end of the macro line to insure that is cut flush and not at an angle. Mine had a little resistance that appeared to be all the way in, but a little more force it went in an 1/8" more. Lastly, be sure you threaded the fitting in as far as it will go using loctite, megalock or something to seal it.

You can give them a call and I am sure they will walk you through fixing it. They are pretty straightforward.

If you don't want to wait, it's pretty simple. It's one screw, the piece that the macro goes into and a threaded bit that goes into the reg.

If you unscrew the small screw you can pull the macro fitting straight off of the threaded part. Just pull in the same direction as the screw you just took out. It may take a little bit of wiggling and pulling.

You will be left with the last piece threaded into the reg. Stick a small allen key through the holes to unscrew it. Put a little thread lock on it, screw it back in, slip the macro fitting back over it and then the screw (with a little thread lock). There's also one (maybe two) o-ring(s) somewhere in the setup. Just check them out and make sure they are in good shape.

My friend had a similar problem, he found that it was just that the heat from the UPS truck that deleivered it had melted the loctite and broken the seal. Granted we live in Arizona so it could be a very different case for you if you dont live in a hot area.

Brother - We have to work on your grammar and punctuation. I have a REALLY hard time following what you are trying to say when you type like this is a run on sentence text message.

Please put some periods and comma's in there, explain where it is leaking from, and perhaps a picture and we can help more. As it stands right now, we know you have a leak at the fitting on the reg but we have no idea where at on the fitting, or what it looks like.

SO sorry about the grammar. It leaks out the bottom where the line goes in. I made sure the macro line was flush across the top and pushed it in as far as it would go. Air does go into the reg and the gun fires. I suck at photo shop or editing to make it clear where air is coming from would a video work? i Have tired oiling the the o-ring and jamming the macro in farther with no luck, and have not tried to remove the fitting yet because I am hoping for some idea besides that to come along. Video will be up before the end of the day.
