My electra and pilot and also Xtra frequently snow from the barrel when using C02. I used nitrogen on the pilot and it did not snow. Anyone know what might need replacing/oiling? Thanks

that's just co2, it means your siphoning liquid co2, nothing really to replace except the air source.;) if you have a HPA just use that it would be much better.

Yep all that is, is liquid CO2 going through your system. Nothing to worry about, but if you have HPA its all the better.

Yep, what the mod squad said, the snow is co2, and its normal when using co2. HPA wont have it because air dosent freeze. No need to change cupseal or oil the gun.

If you use the C02 tank anti-siphon it and that will help a little.

hah yeah thats what i thought .. the anti-siphon should prevent this problem ... atleast most of it ... HPA would prevent it completely .. and hpa is better for your system .. actually if you look closely in the summer time it'll looke like your gun's raining from the barrel :p
