FX Impact Leaking Badly

FX Impact Leaking Badly

Postby King David on Sat Apr 21, 2018 3:43 am

Greetings. I have an FX Impact which is leaking badly from the regulator area. As soon as I screw a full air bottle on, all of the air rushes out via the regulator. This happened a few months ago and I sent the gun back to the dealers in Australia. They found the bottles and the gun were coated with a brown sticky substance which allowed air past the O rings. They put this down to the Hong Yeng electric pump I use to fill the two bottles. They cleaned the gun out completely and advised me to install better filters into the compressor.

I installed a factory inline filter and I change this every 4th bottle fill, which is overkill as the filter is still pure white when I change it. It has worked for about 5,000 rounds. But now it is happening again - leaking a whole bottle in 3 minutes. Has anyone else had this problem please?

sounds like dirty o-rings .. open it up and have a look and give them a clean and a spray of silicone oil
