Puma Re-cocking help

So I picked up a near Mint Pump for a song. Previous owner said it had a leak, but when I cocked it, the leak went away. Pulled the trigger and it wouldn't re-cock, just leak air. Pull the cocking knob, leak goes away. Pull trigger, no re-cock and leak. My guess is the hammer is resting on the valve causing the leak.

I was using an 88/45 on a remote line.

This is my first ICD gun so I'm a noob when it comes to them.

fairly new to them myself but this is where I was told to start learning about them ICD 'Cats Theory of Operation

I've heard that they really like high pressure, trying co2 either as a gas or liquid might help.

You'll need an HP output tank if you're going to run HPA on your Puma.

The settings I've got mine at are
Mainspring Tension: (the hex screw at the back of the marker above rear ASA) Unscrew it all the way and then screw it in two full turns.
Velocity: Screw it in all the way and then back it out 2-4 full turns.
Recock: Screw it in all the way then back it out 1/2 to 3/4 turns.

Hopefully that might help your recock problem. I recommend taking a look at the manual one of these days.

Your guess is probably right.

Have you cleaned up the hammer and running bore? They can be sticky with old oil.

HPA or CO2?

Pull the valve pin. it is made out of a brass bottom and a steal pin. put a wrench on the brass part and use pliers to tighten down the steal pin.
sometimes when they are loose they stick up to far and cause the bolt to stick forward.

CD, I had one do this, and it was leaving some noticeable scratches on the hammer ring. It has to be better to check that the stem is screwed in before it gets to that point, but when you get them well used it is an easy check for a bad case of a valve stem that has backed out.

Honestly, though, this would be odd for a minty cat.
