Sounds to me like you have seals gone inside your marker,, take it apart make sure all seals are in good condition and the marker is well lubed

Check the O rings on the big metal striker, make sure that you have the spring on the back (where the stock would have went) in the right hole on the back plate. Make sure that your velocity is set to a reasonable level.

If you **** it you may find that that stops. Or **** it and then screw in your tank. Make sure you have plenty of air in the tank too, low pressure can sometimes not engage the valve enough to close.

My first suggestion is to pull out the internals and clean/lube them with a good oil made for paintball.

It's possible it could be an o-ring, but I'd try the above first. If it's been a while since you've had any o-rings replaced it might be a good time for a tuneup. Get a kit and change 'em all and you know everything is good to go rather than waiting for something to fail.. and if one fails it's probably only a matter of time before another one gives.

Good luck!

Basically speaking, air is air. Now it's the pressure that's the concern. co2 bottles use a regular valve that has a pin in it and opens to allow the gas through. High Pressure Air - HPA is the same concept but since the pressure with co2 is built up by expanding gas, HPA has to do it with pressure only. So the tank is pressurized a LOT higher than co2, but there's a regulator on the tank valve to bring the working pressure into the marker to the proper level.

So yes, you can use "air", but you need to make sure it has the right output for your marker. (i.e. not a low pressure HPA valve.).

You'll have the same problem though, getting someone to fill the bottle. Check with your local airsmith and paintball fields and stores. If they have co2 they would have HPA, but some do only deal with HPA since it's "easier" in some cases.

You may have to check around. Sometimes hardware stores have a small section in back, or you can check with the paintball places around to see if anyone in your area is equipped. Some teams have their own tanks, especially if there's not a place to get fills locally.

There's also online communities like Brigade and various paintball sites where you can check around for other players. Someone may have a co2 fill tank, a scuba tank for HPA, or a group that gets tanks together to make a run and get them filled somewhere.

Good luck!

I was playing today and my 98 custom just started leaking CO2 from all the cracks it froze up and ice started coming out of the barrel. what happened and how can i fix it??


your tank loosened up, the co2 freezes the rubber seals they will have to be replaced, you can order a repair kit from the website, change out all the rubber seals on the gun and your co2 tank

When i screw my tank on the CO2 goes right through the gun and out the barrel


**** it and that should stop.

If that persists make sure you have cleaned the marker and used a good paintball oil to lubricate the internals.

At the next level you could have a o-ring that's old, brittle, broken and now is leaking by. Your local airsmith should be able to provide the necessary part(s) or fix it in short order for you.

Good luck!

As soon as I screw on the CO2 supply cylinder, I hear air leaking internally. The last time I used it, it worked perfectly. Any ideas?


O-ring. If it is leaking near the tank, it is the o-ring on the tank. Otherwise, it could be one of many o-rings inside the marker. I would take it to a gunsmith and get all the o-rings swapped out.

In cold weather it wont fire, it acts like its running out of co2 it goes full auto.


make sure you replace all of the internal o-rings for commpression. one may be worn slightly and contracts when cold allowing gas to escape
