Hi,
I got a cheap remote line with the gun i bought and it leaks... take a look at this link to see one for sale like the one i have http://cgi.ebay.com/Remote-Coil-Paintball-Co2-Marker-Gun-Air-Hose-Tank-Line_W0QQitemZ290063994122QQihZ019QQcategoryZ83044 QQtcZphotoQQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

It leaks from the quick disconnect place realy bad (like it would drain my 20oz tank in 40 seconds) Is there any thing i can do to stop that?
Thanks,

Hmm, which part of the disconnect is it leaking from? There are certain parts in there I wouldn't mess with and would just send the remote back, but as it's a good brand (CMI), it might just be a simple problem, depending on the local of the leak.

hrm.....leaky slide-check. There's a Black Buna seal in there (Black rubber) that you probably need to add a drop or 2 of paintball oil to. Hydrate that seal a bit and let it soak (2 drops of oil MAX) into the seal for a day...then try it.

Ok i'll try that. I need to get some oil so i'll try to get it today and then oil that sucker up good. I'll let you know if it works.
Thanks,
