JT airsource adapter wont seal
« on: June 09, 2013, 12:24:19 AM »
any tricks for this to work? i've wasted a bunch of 90g cartridges since starting up with mods on my 2240 and i just got a qb79 and was only able to use ONE cartridge out of the four that i bought before the gun arrived. so thats three tanks wasted just today  >:(  and the one tank i got to seal properly i only got 95 shots out of so maybe it was still leaking anyways   >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  >:(  i just want to shoot my new gun and theres nowhere around here to refill co2 tanks

I've tried putting oring and rubber washers around the piercing stem but those normally only last for one use and are hit or miss.  i.e. sometimes it only dumps most of the air instead of ALL of it   :-\

ok so i think ive figured out a way to get them sealed effectively. I still use an oring on the peircing pin (#104 i think) but i put them in the freezer for an hour or so before screwing them on. I guess it lowers the pressure enough that i can get it on there tight faster than the co2 can vent..   Its worked on the last two i tried...
