If an airgun is leaking out of the valve, how can you fix it?

It is nice you searched but right there you are doing his dirty work for him. But I think you can goop up where you think the leak is or just electrical tape.

He means the valve, which is the part that moves to allow air to leave the tank. If you have a splitfire, you are pretty well screwed. If you have a SS2 or any other air gun, spray some silicon lube on the valve, and leave it over night. Leak should be gone, I did this with my leaky 2k, except I didn't use spray....

Spray some silicone spray and pump it up once, then fire. Repeat again but this time pump it up to max, and just let it sit there and see if it leaks again. I did this to my titan and it work fine.

Just don't use WD40. It will degrade your seal. Use silicone spray.
sorry for the off topic question, but can anyone post a GOOD silicone spray that doesn't have any petroleum or, in this case, safe for plastics and rubber? The one I have has an acetone propellant and messes up plastics if I use it.

I have liquid wrench silicone spray and it says safe for rubber. wood, plastic, vinyl, or metal. is this a good spray for valves or will it kill the seal?
It also says it has Petroleum Distallates, is that ok or should i get a new spray to not wreck my guns?
