slight PGP problems

So I just picked up a PGP to tinker with, and I'm having a few problems.

First and foremost, a 12 gram is stuck in the gun. It won't come out at all. I've tried tapping the gun, and doing lots of stuff, but it won't come out. Suggestions? Its empty btw.

Also, sometimes the gun leaks. It will put hte 12 gram in, cock it, and shoot it, and then it will start to leak. I assume this is moer of a 12 gram problem than a gun problem. ANy suggestions to stop this?

try cocking it and pull the trigger without the 12 gram knob screwed in, and it may pop the 12 gram out.

the 12 gram most likely isn't the problem. you need a new 12 gram face seal.

do you have a valve removal tool? you'll need one to get the valve out assuming it's the older style valved pgp and not a cartridge valve model.

But if I needed a new seal, wouldn't it happen all of the time? It leaked with 2 out of 4 12 grams.

Cocking it and pull the trigger isn't getting it out.
Edit: I got it out.

there could be dirt on the seal. that could cause it to leak at different times.

look at the face of your 12 grams and see if they look different between the ones that didn't leak.

i'd still bet that it needs a new seal.

where does the air leak from? the front grip frame screw or down the barrel?

Not sure, I can't get it to leak again, so I guess its fixed. I looked at the 12 gram that was leaking, and it was like half pierced, like instead of 1 clean hole, it was indented it some places, and in some places it went through all the way.
