No need to try to fix it. You could get a new one for under $5. You'd just have to make sure you get the right one, because a lot take regular spyder cup seals.

didn't I read at sometime that the cup seals for the rap4 rap68 was a good one to use on markers like this?

Might be. It would be best to ask around to the owners to see if they knew. Many STBB pistols use Spyder parts, but I wouldn't assume anything.

I'm not sure if the cupseals are compatible between the T68/Delta .68 and the Zeus-types or not. I believe the Core, Zeus, and other pistols use regular spyder seals but I have gotten all of my replacements from Alamo City Paintball and have been very happy with them.

But before you go ahead and replace it, let me ask a stupid question: did you cock the hammer back before you pierced the 12g? If the answer is yes, then proceed with disassembling. If the answer is no, try it again but cock the marker first. When its not cocked the hammer is keeping the valve slightly open which will cause all the gas to leak down the barrel. Also, it doesn't hurt to check/replace the front o-ring (well, all o-rings if it looks heavily used) on the valve, as that can cause a similar leak. Regular tank o-rings work just fine.

Without any tuning, you should be getting 20-25 shots per 12g. If you look up AgentSmith's posts on "Zeus-type Spring Tuning" he was getting up to 30+, and those threads will show you how to replicate his results.

They do take Spyder cupseals.

It was the RAP4 T68 Pierce pin we were recommending, but only for delta68s and such, your core zx should use either warsensor or Phantom pierce pins.

Welcome to the club, you're going to have a great time with that pistol!
