KP face seal kink....why?

One of my KP's is having issues. I used it for part of Pumpers and then started getting a leak. So I swapped guns (for the second time that day) and just knew I'd have to put in a new face seal.

So when I took it apart the face seal that was on there was rippled up on one said and squished down. OK weird...but whatever. New face seal.

Took the same marker out this past weekend. No problems with it. However when cleaning my gear, I always make sure I haven't accidentally left a marker aired up or with a spent 12 gram in it. So I fired a shot to know there was no air, removed the plunger and though I'd take a peak at the face seal.....sure enough same weird wripple. After only one game.

Here's a bad cell phone picture. So what's causing this? I've never had this happen with any other marker I own.

A 12 gram that was lined up correctly was tightened down and bent the end?

I did the same with a knockout tool once, but that was with hitting it with a hammer.

Perhaps you got a batch of 12ies that were slightly longer, have you switched brands?

I assume that you don't have the often seen washer/spacer on the 12 gram push rod?

what kind of seal is that? Looks black.
You should at least be using a CCI if you can't find a stock Sheridan seal at PPS

THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...

Yeah, that what I was gonna ask. It's the wrong color for a face seal. Black is rubber and you want the white/yellow teflon.

The originals used a leather seal, and that cup was made for that by the holes on the side that held the leather in place.
Most aftermarket face seals won't work as a permanent fix because they are too thin, but I've been told that a CCI cupseal (not the CCI faceseal) will work as a replacement.

If you've bought a face seal from PPS they're selling these as well. It's a find face seal. I use them all the time.

I do have the washer on the plunger rod.

The 12 grams are Lelands....but they're relatively new to me....so that's a possibility.

I could change the cupseal. I'm not sure that's it though...as the part that's pushed up is along the outer edge, farthest away from where the pin would come up.
