My SM5K started leaking yesterday, and within hours it would no longer hold air. I've opened it up, and I can push the firing pin all the way forward and pump, and the air still leaks, out of the front. I think the valve is off center, it might be from over pumping but I think its from general wear and tear. Does anyone know anyway of fixing this, or is it ruined?

With mine, I just cut open the airtank and took a look what's inside. I did an airtank expansion while I was at it, and while it's still in progress, you need to make sure as you said that the little head on the tip of the firing pin lines up well with the hole, forming a good seal. One way I would think you could do this is by replacing the spring that you will find in there.
