Ok for you LP folks out there... I threw in a 32degrees magnaport valve into my imagine along with a medium valve spring, and medium main spring. Put my marker back together and gassed it up and now it seems like I'm leaking air from the valve... Any suggestions on how to alleviate that?

OK did what everyone suggested, still freakin leaking... It's worse when the barrel is forward, when you cock the markler it's less audible but there if you hold the marker up to your ear... Any suggestions?

does it have enough pressure to fire? i've had problems with internals leaking, but once i fired, the pressure sealed it better, don't know if you tried firing yet though

Yup tried it and it's still leaking like a sieve, think I may take it apart later and replace all the orings in the marker...

It's not the valve o-rings, it's the cup seal. You need a Lapco and I guaranty the leak will go away. I had exactly the same prob with mine and ignored posts suggesting the Lapco. Once I finally broke down and got it, I kicked myself for not doing it sooner -
