I modded my AT2K and it was amazing until I plugged the air release valve. I pumped it 5 times only but then it would not fire. I opened it up again then pulled on the trigger and let go of the compressed air inside. I closed it, pumped it twice pulled the trig and it fired. I did it again but when I pulled the trigger it didn't fire. I opened it again and saw that the metal pin that the trigger pulls back wouldn't move back to its original spot. So, I cut the air tank (I dont know what it's called but the place where the air is pumped into) in half and I fixed it. Now the only problem is that I hot glued it together again but the air still leaks out. I put a whole lot of E-tape over it to prevent leaks and help keep it together but guess what...
There are still leaks. I pump it so I get an idea of where the leak is so I can put tape and glue over it but it still doesn't work. What should I do?
Sorry, can't take pictures.

Get plastic weld epoxy. I used it for my sm1500 airtank and it works almost the same.

First use hot glue and then use the epoxy for strength. After it cures, use more hot glue to cover up the whole thing for airtightness.

If you are willing to risk it, hold it under water, when pumped, and you might be able to see where it's leaking. I would also use a glue made for sealing things, such as epoxy or plumber's goop, as hot glue is poorly suited for sealing off leaks.

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

I used to have a similar problem with one of my Big Blasts. The portion of the gun with the firing pin and trigger assembly (fire control group) is prone to shifting positions in some guns. My 4B (Buzz Bee Big Blast) would suffer from the FCG being skewed. The tank would move forward, and the trigger wouldn't. This would mean that the stationary trigger pulled the firing pin and held it back, releasing any stored or pumped air. Simply glue the FCG or tank into position in the beginning if this happens again.

That happened with my LBB also. I just lubed everything up and it worked fine after that.
We should stop calling out/making fun of/pissing GC off. He's actually contributed and is available for trade. He's a better than average member no doubt. Got your back Cole.
