TPX Air-Leak Issue

Okay, I just disassembled my TPX for the first time. I'd bought it used and it worked quite well for the most part.

Sadly now that I've reassembled the marker I have a fairly major air leak to content with.

When I attach a tank through the remote line adapter air just starts leaking out of the back portion of the marker. Inserting a 12g leads to the same result.

I'm fairly new to maintenance on my own markers but am hoping that someone here with some experience could give me a little help, or even direct me to a video of someone correcting a problem such as this.

Simple is gold here, as again, I'm fairly novice with this type of work. That said, I'm a quick study and willing to learn.

Any help out there?

It's probably an O-ring. There are tiny o rings on each end of the connecting tube that goes into the regulator. Check them.

Born4Evil seriously sounds like the devil himself, and its awesome. That gun is hands down the most badass gun in my mind.

It is the small orings on the connecting tube,Also make sure to oil your marker after you have installed the orings.The orings that broke are very common to be replaced in the TPX frequently

It could also be that on installing the remote adapter your shredded the o-ring on the threaded end of that as well. Pro tip: make sure the hole drilled in the back of the clamshell half for the adapter is big enough that it's not cocking the adapter slightly to one side when you install it. Also, always apply a good bit of grease to the o-rings before you install them and gently TWIST/WIGGLE the tube/adapter into place, don't push! I've never managed to mangle an o-ring on the 3 or 4 different TPX's I've owned, but it seems a lot of people have trouble with finessing them into place.
