PGP Leaks a little bit.

Hi all, New to the forums.

Anyways, had a question about my PGP. She is one of the newer ones with the cartridge valve. When I shoot her, for the first 20 or so shots there is no problem. When I get to the last 10-15 shots, whenever I leave her un cocked she leaks just a tiny bit. Possibly a weak valve spring?

Is there any way to get into the valve assembly? Been looking online but all I see are the ones that have the built in valve and not the cartridge valve. Any help/advice is much much appreciated.

Also, is there any place that sells replacement parts besides Palmer's? I know RC had em years ago, but seems like he closed up shop.

Might be dried up seals or just some junk in there. I'd start by taking it apart and cleaning it really well. There's some pics of the valve assembly in this thread:

Don't forget to scribe / mark a line down the valve so you can get it lined back up properly when you put it back together.

Is there any trick to taking apart the valve. Mine seems to be stuck together very well.

Thank you for all your help.

I put the grip frame screw back in the hole near the front and an allen key in the exhaust port and twist. If it is too hard don't force it or you may mess up the threads, use a vice then.
