enemy leak?

I got a used enemy, but its leaking from the front end of the marker, seems like somewhere in the breech area?

I checked the regulator o-ring and it's fine.

The gun leaks constantly and if I fire it and hold the trigger the leak goes away and then gradually comes back more and more. Releasing the trigger makes the leak even worse. Is this just a clean and relube? it has a lot of lube in it right now or seems to. oh and the only lube I have is slick honey? I assume that's fine, the gun is not under warranty anymore since I'm not the original buyer.

check the seal on the front banjo fitting and the condition of the bolt sail oring, then clean and lube everything. a little goes a long way we these guns, over lubing can cause some issues.

bolt sail oring? which one is that? I'm pretty new to this type of system. Been using mags and cockers mostly.

there should be 2 orings near the front of the bolt just like vibes/ions. the larger of the the 2 is the bolt sail oring. it was green on ions, not sure if thats still the case on the enemy.

the orings check out fine. I relubed still leaks. The parts manual said the brass fitting into the vasa should be sealed with thread sealant, but i didn't see any. The oring looked fine. I suppose I'll have to disassemble it again and seal those threads. I'll see if oatey great white works. It worked on my blazer lpr.

Check the orings on the BANJOs also. Sounds like a regulator leak also. Disassemble the regulator also and clean it up and check all the orings.

Later,

That sounds like the relief valve going off. May need to flip the seat in the reg piston as it sounds like you're getting reg creep which is causing the relief to vent. Have you chrono'd at all?

banjo orings look good. Reg leak is possible. I haven't chronoed it yet. I could put a ball or two of the radachron and see where its at.

Funny thing is, I aired it up with the grip frame detached and couldn't detect an air leak, but upon attaching the grip frame the leak was back. This time not only was their the leak coming out btween the reg and plastic body, but also around the 3 way valve plunger that the trigger contacts.

When I get home later this morning I'll chrono it and see where its at. The reg does look to have a lot of lube in it. Any ideas on the 3way being funky. I think it was leaking from there before sometime, but I didn't isolate the location until recently.

Just by chance did you do the trigger mod? If so you might have the allen screw in to far causeing it to hit the 3way with the frame on. Also are you making sure that the hose is in the trigger frame grooves? Might be pinching it.

You can sht the reg down and then add air. then slowly open it to see if it was just a miss adjusted reg.

my radarchron battery needs to be replaced as it wouldn't register any shots. Would shooting indoors affect it?

I took the reg apart and wiped out some of the excess lube. Reassembled with the reg turned all the way off and turned it up just a little. No leaks, don't know what it is shooting at, but seems to just have been the reg cranked up way too high.

I'm now really familiar with the internals and disassembly of the gun.

is this a grease only gun or should I occasionally run some oil through the asa?
