PGP problem

i got 2 new (well old) PGPs the other day and ive got a problem with the post2k1 peircing the 12g. the knob wont turn in all the way and i think thats the problem. ive tried using a screw driver to turn it in more but there is really no more room in there for the 12g. i did fire the priming shot and it worked and shot two paintballs but then it stopped getting air after that. any ideas anyone?

If by the knob you mean the one on the front of the botton tube you use to change 12grs tightening it shouldn't really effect piercing the 12 gr. All you are doing is forcing the 12gr into the seal.
If it's getting enough air for two shots then running out of air something else is wrong - a leak maybe? Try firing the priming shot & then hold it up next to your ear to see if you hear a leak.

It's never a very good idea to put a pressurized marker next to yor ear. A much more effective leak discovery method is to dunk it in a tub of water (don't do this with newer electronic markrs) and find where the bubbles are comming from. You can also spot apply soapy water to places you think a leak may be.

If all the air leaked out in the space of only two shots, I'd expect you would hear it pretty aparantly though. Something may very well be wrong with your valve.
