Okay, my Sonic Bazooka (pump plugged and barrel replaced) just sprung a leak. I opened it up and found a crack in the air tank. I sealed it and then took a few test pumps. It held up fine...until I pulled the trigger. All the air leaked out of the triger and none came out the barrel.

Any suggestions on what to do? Or should I trash this one and buy a new one?



EDIT: Yes I searched and found nothing on a leaky Sonic Bazooka. I think I'm the first to have a problem with a SB holding air..

Post a picture of the tank/other internals and we'll be able to help you more.

I don't know why the air would be coming out of the trigger area short of there being another leak. Maybe the firing pin got dislodged ot twisted, but that still doesn't seem to explain it.

Maybe you somehow sealed the barrel up so no air can escape through it?

People have had the same problem with AT2K's. I think there was a topic about it just last week. But, I think that the problem is within the tank, so you might just have to scrap it. Before you do, (if you do) I would see if your problem is what doubleshot said.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

I'd suggest looking up leaks for LBBs and BBBBs. They are essentially the same guns.

Also, could you post some more revealing pictures?

Not exactly. The trigger mech is totally different. If there is a leak from the trigger you are hosed. to get to the leak you would have to destroy the gun. Unless it is on the outside of the trigger housing.
Toss it.

Alternatively, you can attempt to do a tank expansion, but you'll need to replace the spring inside of the gun, and probably the o-ring that's causing the leak. It involves cutting the tank in half, and joining the halves together with a pvc coupler/piece of pvc after you fix the internals. It's risky, but if the gun is fucked anyways, it's worth a shot. I had to do it to one of my SM5k's after it shit out on me in a similar fashion. I'm assuming it's leaking near the trigger pin.

Nope, I took out me replacement barrel to be sure. The leaking is coming from the actual trigger pin, it all seeps through it when you push it in.

Well, thanks for the help guys, I think I might try what Ompa suggested and it that fails, scrap it.
Thanks guys!
