    I have replaced every Oring in my xvalve but it still leaks down the barrel

    I went to the field yesterday only to find that my xvalve decided that it didn't want to be used. As the title says today I took it all apart and replaced all the orings in the oring kit. Yes I added oil and still doing the same thing but I notice that it does recharge faster. Also when I first air it up its a small leak and when I pull the trigger its a huge leak down the barrel. The only thing I don't have extras of to check is a carrier set. Is that what the problem would be?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Trigger

    Is it still leaking when you fire and hold the trigger down?

    It sounds like you still have bad orings.

    1. Replace the two top on/off orings. Try again.

    2. Replace the small oring on the aft side of the brass reg seat holder. Try again.

    Get the big leak fixed, hopefully with the suggestions above. Then, a carrier kit and proper tuning should fix the small leak when the trigger isn't pulled.

    See diagram on page 13 of the above link. The small oring fits inside the larger one.

    Unless it's stuck in the hole, we may have found the problem.

    The leak when the trigger is at rest and pulled is one in the same. Installing the other on/off oring should fix everything.

    so your saying that the brass top is two pieces?

    Edit: I got it apart and changed oring inside, It is much better now but also now I am out of air so naturally I am stuck till I go play again.
