Alright everyone, I'm stuck with a problem. My modded splitfire is acting weird on me. It only holds air in the right barrel's airtank. After about 30 seconds, the air comes out of the left barrel and that barrel won't fire, but the right one works fine. My silicon spray didn't do anything, so any help would be greatly appriciated.

Try pumping it then putting it under water to find the leak, then plug it up with goop, epoxy or silicone spray.

You could use soppy (spelling?) water to find the leak and then plug it up with epoxy.

I did that, and there is no leak when I put it under some water. The air escapes out of the barrel, not the tank.

The same thing happened to me. It was a slippery slope to a dead splitfire. Make sure that the rubber seal in the back of the valve is sealing with the back of the air chamber. Try pushing the black rubber seal back with a thin dowel, to get it back into position. If that does not work, the you can try lubricating the seal. In my case, these worked temporarily; so, unfortunately, my splitfire died. However, I managed to splice in two AT2K air tanks, and revive it as the splitech 2000; but, that just sprung a leak as well.

You mean lube the area with the 2 firing pins on it that the trigger pulls? I haven't tried lubing that yet.

No, try looking up how splifire valves work, then it should make sense. I can't explain it right now because I need to keep working on my English paper. If you can't find it, I'll explain it tommorrow afternoon.
Now I have some time. Ok, so here is a link to where the splitfire's valves are explained:
click here
scroll about 2/3 the way down the page, the post is by falcon.
What I am saying, is you need to find a way to either push the little black rubber seals back into position, or to lubricate them with something to make them seal better. I'm afraid that to do this, you're on your own, as I was not able to fix mine despite numerous attempts.
