Lately, my magstrike has been leaking air really bad. When I took it apart to find out what the problem is, I discovered that this part...Posted Image is the cause of the problem. It leaks air when the bladder is full. If anyone knows how to fix this then please help me!!!

If you press down the trigger and it hisses at you, I'm pretty sure that you're fucked. I have the same problem.

Well, since you have located the source of the problem, do a water test on it to figure out exactly where it's leaking. If it's one of the hoses, goop it, if it's the valve, buy a replacement off NH.

I had this same problem. Your Magstrike is pretty much screwed. No glue, goop, or whatever can fix it. I just took off the pump and used it for something else

THAT PART IS A BITCH! :D
I have had mine leak, break, crack, any thing that can happen to it. IF IT WERE ME I WOULD BUY A NEW BLASTER. Or a valve from the "Trading" Forum.

Thats the way I do it. Use a rag with some light fast rubbing.

If it leaks from the green part sticking out, then yes, the leak is pretty much irreparable. If it leaks from the joints, however, you might be able to save it by cutting the joints off, sticking 1/8" brass in the holes, gooping it shut, then gluing and gooping tubing onto the new brass stubs.

It worked for me, but then shortly thereafter the piston sprung a leak (which was pretty much fatal for the Magstrike).
