Just got it and put it into the gun. Aired it up and air leaks out of the barrel like crazy.

I've tried:

Replacing the orings
Cleaning the Cup seal
Rebalancing the regs
Lighter Valve spring
Heavier valve spring
Relubing everything

I think I got a defective valve, it looks ok on the outside but something is wrong. Is there anything I haven't tried that might fix it or should I send it back to Vaporworks.

Here's a couple things to check.

Make sure you're not overtightening the retention screw on the bottom of the body. That will make it leak if it's too tight.

Make sure the seal is tight on the stem.

Make sure there are no nicks on the face of the valve.


If all of that looks good then.......


Inspect the sealing face of the valve and make sure it's smooth.

Then put the stem in the valve and hold it up to the light and look to see if you can see any light or anything around the seal.

If all else fails send it back in for a free replacement.

Wow, thanks a lot for the speedy reply. I will check all of that.


EDIT: Everything looks alright, but I can see a tiny bit of light around the edge of the cup seal. Doesn't look like a big enough gap to cause the leaks I'm getting. Can I send it back or is there a fix for the cupseal? Thank you.
