I've never owned a rapid Frie 20 before so I'm not sure if this is normal, but after fully pumping my Rapid Rire and leaving it for while (about an hour) I would come back to it and find it with no air in it. Is it normal for a rapid fire air tank to dissapate over a while or does it have a leak.

Never owning a RF20 I can't say for sure but I would say that is not normal. I have an LBB that does the same exact thing. It's most likely leaking. I suggest opening it up and pumping it up under water and if you see bubbles you know it is leaking. And then you can pin-point exactly where it is leaking from. At that point you can figure out your problem.

I'm pretty sure thats normal. I have a Rapid Fire 20 that does the same thing. Mine leaks out in a matter of 10-15 minutes. I don't mind though. Maybe you could fix it though.

That's because of micro fractures and imperfections in the tank's plastic. Every air powered gun I've owned does the exact same thing. Unfortunately, there's not much you can do abou it.

Yeah, mine too, Just bought it 3 days ago... Nerf is shipping defective units? Not to hijack your thread, but have you done any mods to yours? (either of you)

Well now, yeah, but even when I first got them they all did it, and all of my friend's guns do it, and they don't haven't even opened theirs yet.

Spectre666, the RF20's Air Tank isn't a tank made of plastic at all. It's an air bladder made of the same material as the Magstrike Bladder. It's some kind of rubber-type material, I don't know the real name of it is, but I think CaptainSlug does. The leak is likely in the tubing that connects everything together.

That makes a lot of sense... Put your gun under water and when it is completely ruined try and see if it is still leaking... Come on a 5th graders has more common sense than that.

I think Mcflurry means submerging only the RF20's bladder, because its the same as a Magstrike's bladder, so I think its like a innertuby type of material or something.
