Puff of air from power adjuster

The new Gladiator and Verminator ("Mk2") models are based on the Royale/Elite action block, but are different enough to warrant their own section.

Puff of air from power adjuster

Postby Gazzmondo on Wed Jan 25, 2017 11:32 am

Hi all
I just noticed the other day that there seems to be a puff of air coming from around the power adjuster wheel on firing.
This doesn't seem to affect the consistency as I've chronoed it and shot to shot it's less than 10ft/sec variation.
Just wondering if this is normal or if I need to replace some o rings.

Cheers
Gaz

I don't think any puff of air is normal, it usually means an o-ring's on the way out, sprinkle a bit of baby powder around suspect area to be sure.
I'm not familiar with the power wheel O-rings but make sure you take off/empty the air bottle & empty the regulator if you have one(better google that one)
www.fxairguns.com in support there are exploded diagrams of the beasties.

It's just I vaguely remember reading somewhere that it was normal, but can't find the article now!
Your right though, why bother having o rings if they don't seal.
Will strip and replace them any way as I have a seal kit.
