Ok.. My Skirmish SI leaks but it's weird. Cup seals good. Leaks only as I cock it. Once it's cocked it's fine and at rest it's fine. Seems like anytime there is any stress on the power tube it leaks down the barrel but the power tube itself visually looks fine. Spring tension is fine, the main spring isn't too heavy. Help!

could be a bent power tube. pull it out and put it in a drill chuck and spin it. if there's a slight bend you will see it wobble.

It could be that the collar doesn't fit the powertube. Are they both Line SI? They usually are with Skirmishes. Remarkably Skirmishes are usually in near mint condition. If the PT can move around easily and leak gas it could be the after mentioned pt/collar fit.

I'd check to make sure your valve spring is strong enough. If it's too weak, that happens.

Unless it is a miss matched powertube, I will go with weak spring.

We used to set up our marker where that you could cock them with out co2.

Spring seems fine. Thinking its the tube. It's stamped 00 on it, recommend I grab a 4 or a 6? On the PT topic, what is in an Empire Trracer? Might be able to borrow one to check before I buy just to make sure.

60 cal bushmaster SI?

1st off cool(long) post but it didn't answer the question I have.

Ok, so after lusting after a Bushmaster SI for the last 20 years now I finaly get one off ebay for under $100. I'll upload pics later. M16 grip unibody w brass m16 like tip and a knob quick change. It arived today and the finish is nice. I go out to the garage and throw in a 12gram. It dryfires perfectly and doesn't leak. I try to drop a ball in the feed and it sticks. So I check the paint with my calipers to see it swelled and it measured 0.675-0.679 depending where I measure. So I field strip it and try to drop a ball in the aft end of the body and again it sticks. I measured the bolt with my calipers and its 0.590 DIA. I pull the brass tip and measure the front of the barrel and it measures 0.600DIA. It is stamped Bushmaster SI on the body. What do I have here? I never heard of Bushmasters shooting SMG60 paint. I bought this to shoot, not be some wall hanger. Its too big for 50cal paint, too small for even the smallest 68 paint and SMG60 paint hasn't been made in forever, so I've got a little problem here. I'm torn between chucking this in the lathe and making a tight boar unibody then sending back out for ano, putting AC threads in it or overboaring it for a hidden brass barrel. I just really want to know what I have before I decide to do something I can't undo. If anyone has some knolage on this oddity please tell. I'll get some pics taken and loaded tomorrow if I'm not playing paintball. Thanks.

Brian
