on/off o-rings/seals most likely. Put a couple drops of oil in ASA and shoot the Mag a few times to see if it is just lack of oil. Pull the trigger and hold it if leak does not stop the on/off is your issue.

Powertube o-ring. That ring gets the most abuse.

big difference. the classic uses a banjo bolt to hold the valve in where as the pro uses the same take down screw as all the other mags.

take the valve apart and look at the o rings. if they are white or a light yellow you should be good. if they are dark yellow or brown I would replace them. did you oil the marker before airing it up? mags like oil, 2 or 3 drops in the asa before you screw in the tank then air them up and pull the trigger a few times to oil the valve. do this without the barrel attached so you don't oil up the barrel and cause it to shoot all over the place.

OK I did this and oil blew out of the back of the bolt all over me, I was discouraged and went upstairs and ate cookies
