So I got my first lbb a couple of days ago but after a couple of shots with it it started to leak.
It seems that the leak is in side the barrel, like if the valve was leaking. I removed the airrestrictor so I can't just exchange it for a new one. Does anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Happened to my beast of an LBB also. The way I solved it was just take out the itnernals of the gun (minuesn the trigger) pump it up and put it under water. Where you see bubbles coming out of thats where your leak is. Then fill the leak with your favorite plumbing goop.

I'm anxiously awaiting the hasbro over throw.

That would work if his pressure chamber were cracked...which it might be.

However, he says that it might be a faulty valve, in which case he can't just plumbers goop it. Of course,that actually would fix the leak, but...it's not going to be ble to shoot anymore.

To anders: They probably won't notice that a small grey cap is missing off of the end of a barrel that is surrounded by the LBB's shell; you could probably return it no problem.

If I were to goop a hole/crack I would need to remove the barrel since the leak is in the "inside" of the barrel. An i rather belive that there is some kind of problem with the guns valve. And i tryed to put the internals underwater and pump ( Iam not stupid) thats when i realised that the leak is inside the barrel.

Wait, do you mean that the actual barrel itself is cracked, or that there is a leak in a place blocked by the barrel? Either way, you might as well just saw off the barrel to fix the leak and add a replacement barrel (I'd choose brass). As for the valve, I would check for any cracks there when the barrel is off.

For maximum efficiency?


1. Pump up. Count how many pumps.

2. Keep going until you hear a loud "bang".

3. Subtract one pump from the total. Rebuild your air bladder.


There you go.

I think my LBB may have the same problem.

Do the water-thing that was suggested - I believe the leak comes from the valve itself; it's faulty. It's slow enough on mine that it's not a major issue.

If that's the case, you'd need to make the valve part that's inside the plastic just a little bulkier , so that it seals all the way.

He already did the under water trick, and a cracked barrel wouldn't be causing this. It must either be:

A. A crack that is "hidden" within the barrel, or

B. The valve.

...you'd need to make the valve part that's inside the plastic just a little bulkier , so that it seals all the way.


Gengar, how would one do that, exactly? I ask because I might be having the same problem with my one and only AT2k (dang, I wish I'd bought them way back when). I haven't had the time to open it up and diagnose the problem yet, so it could just be a crack. At least, I hope it's just a crack. :huh:
