Somehow the "handle"part on the stock you used seems out of place because it is no longer used as such.I feel you would have been better off sculting the shoulder stock yourself, without the bulges.You seem to be good at it so..
Trust me, that was pet peeve of mine from the beginning.Unfortunately the mauser stock I used was too thin to cut the hand hold out without taking a chance on breaking the stock off somewhere down the line.And of course I was too lazy to go about building a whole new stock
before you bury the pressure washer handle under a heap of bondo, take it apart ( too late now) and scrape out the seal.It;s made of strange grey material that comes apart surprisingly easy.Remove it completely and replace it by an O-ring.You might have to remove a tiny amount of the brass to make it seal onto the rod.
Glue the O-ring in place and Voila...No hissing ever.
I did take mine apart.It was a little different.The valve face is straight brass(no hope of sealing that) and a ball bearing fits in there and "seals" it off.I have no rubber in there except an o-ring that is behind the threads.
Believe it or not I was a little happy about this.No seals means no stuff to replace when the C02 eats it away.
I alleviated the problem with a ball valve before the main valve.I had to put it there anyways.Field owners are crazy about safety.
Great the handle can take 800 psi aint it??
Opens up so many possibilities.
Yes it does.Especially when things like ideas for small caliber semi autos start popping up...
