Slight leak coming from the bucket changer any Ideas?

Cant Learn without asking questions so here it goes.
Now it was working fine for a while but it just started to leak after a couple games. Now I personally think its the 12 grams I started using but I currently don't have any others to test my theory but if anyone has any suggestions I would be more than happy to hear them.

Made a quick video just for a reference.

If you changed brands it's possible these ones are shorter than the ones you were using before. I use Lelands and had this problem when I first got mine. RTR sent out shims to those that purchased the earliest ones, this one should have been late enough to have the problem fixed. Might be with what ever brand you are using it's just a little shorter.

There are several threads in here with details on different peoples fixes for this problem when it does come up.

Yeah that's what im thinking as well I started buying from my field when it started happening I just wanted a second opinion in case it was a bigger problem then being let on. Do you have a brand that you would recommend?

Lelands are great, very consistant size, they are shorter than some other brands. Find a brand the gun likes and stick with it.

Your question's already been answered but I'll 2nd what Greenmnt's already said. I use Lelands, and they're just slightly to short. I use a 113 (I think) size oring in the bottom of my bucket changer, which acts as a "shim" and allows the 12gram to sit just slightly higher, enough to pierce the 12gram; and it's OD is big enough that it doesn't fall out when changing 12 grams. I can mail you one for free if you want to PM me your address.

Short,

Any way you could verify that size so that we can know for the next time this question comes up?

Quality control on some of these 12ies is bad enough from what I hear that even CCI is starting to have issues. Different length 12ies played a part in PPS not making some of their guns with a 12ie option any more IIRC

Not a problem! I was just double-checking for the OP to pack up a couple and send his way. I'm using a -113 in mine... it's the perfect size, stays put when changing 12ie's and is thick enough to prop the 12ie up just enough to pierce.

Also, the bucket side of the ASA adaptor is a 2x16mm and of course the ASA side of the ASA adaptor is a standard 015
