I have had a S6 for over a year and a half now and have had the same reoccurring problem. When I pull the trigger and shoot a ball the valve sticks open and bleeds air down the barrel until I cock the gun again. This has been happening off and on for over a year. I have rebuild the reg, set the pressure. Replaced all o rings. Can you please help me diagnose the possible causes for this?
Thank you in advance!!

My roommate had this exact problem with his T2
We sweetspotted the reg a few time and it would work for a bit and then the valve would eventually start sticking. We did have to change the valve in the end.
With an S6 make sure that the operating pressure is over 300psi and sweetspot from there. If I remember right, Rod sets the regs at 350psi when they come from CCM (correct me if I am wrong)
Phone CCM (1-877-412-6850)! They are great for they are great at fixing these problems.
There is a reason that they are so well known for their customer service.

I had the same problem when I first got my S6. I changed to a harder valve spring and the problem resolved itself.
I would suggest you remove the valve and ensure it is clean and in good working order and check the valve spring is not worn out. Keep in mind you will need a "cocker valve tool" to do this.
Raising Reg inlet pressure may "assist" the valve to reclose after firing.

Bump the pressure up on the reg a bit (say 20 psi) and if you are now shooting hot - back off the IVG a bit. I have found you have to balance the S6 a little more than other markers.
