Generally, air leaking from the nose of the gun is caused by the vinyl headvalve/cylinder seal. It is installed on the headvalve and snugs against the cylinder. I would also check the cylinder ring supporting the cylinder that is visable when the head is removed. The cylinder ring is made of white plastic and has an oring on outside edge and seals against the cylinder with another oring. The ring tends to crack allowing air out nose. Some cylinder rings were made of metal, which is better and do not fail. Metal or plastic, check the orings there. Not to worry, these parts are not expensive and available at www.bostitch.com. enjoy

Sorry about the delayed response. This unit needs to have the O-rings replaced. The return of the firing pin is not happening correctly. This means that the pressure release holes are still engaged. When the pin pushes out the nail, the return should cause the holes to get covered. If there is an air leak, the return will not complete resulting in an even larger air leak which is what you are now seeing. This is a relatively simple repair for any shop that handles these and would be considered a standard maintenance effort. These are decent tools and with proper maintenance will last for years. Mine is over 22years old and going string.

SOURCE: Firing Pin doesn't return
The piston is returned to its firing position by air from the trigger valve after the piston has fired. It relys on the piston sealing against the bumper at the bottom of its stroke, if the bumper was damaged when the driver shattered or it was put in upside down the piston will not return. Also the piston uses air fed into the return chamber from the little holes in the cylinder, if the seal over these holes is damaged the piston may not return. Basically change the bumper and the check seal on the cylinder.
