A-5 Help

Unread postAuthor: spudkilla » Mon Apr 14, 2008 8:13 pm

Hey guys I have a problem. I just got a used a5 off of ebay and I re-assembled it and hooked up my 20 oz to it. It then bled c02 from the barrel. Any advice? I really want to use it this weekend. Please help!

With out being able to look at it inside and out I can’t say for sure. Sounds like the valve ain’t sealing, can you get us a picture of the gun with the side panel off?

I've owned an A5 before getting into tournament paintball. If cocking the gun does not work, make sure all of the internal o-rings are well lubricated. There should be one oring on the front of the bolt, if any of them leak down the barrel, it would be this one.

spudman, the oring on the bolt does not affect CO2 leaking in the barrel. It only helps to make a seal.

As others said, cock the gun first, then try. If that doesn't work, put a few drops of oil (make sure it is compatible with the marker) in the asa, then attach the tank. If that doesn't work, check all the orings. If that doesn't work, send it back to where it cam from :wink:
