When I blow down the breech I hear air leacking at the plunger tube area where the brass comes out. In angels writeup he says:;

If you here air leaking near the plunger then that is not an issue because we will deal with that later.

I looked through the rest of the post and couldn't find anything that looked like a fix. Help would be appreciated.

One of two things is happening.

Either:

1) Your bolt is not advancing all the way forward.
This means that you cannot push the bolt handle into it's original position.
When this happens a leak occurs where the plunger tube meets the bolt.
With the gun open blow down the barrel and keep your fingers near the area to see if that is where the leak is coming from.

2) You forgot to put the O-ring that was there back on.

That's all I can think of right now.

Take photos if you cannot solve the problem.

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

On mine, I put so much silicone grease on that the o-ring came off and stuck to the top of the PT. The when I pushed forward the bolt, it came out around the bolt. Since the sled attachment piece was glued on, I had to get the o-ring without removing the bolt. Not fun. Then the ironic part was, after getting it back on, the sled attachment piece broke off. Go figure. She's up and running now, though.

At first I had forgotten the O-ring, but then I saw it was missing. I'll go mess with it some more and see if I can find the problem.
