On my brand new vs3 the 2nd time i put my air on it started leaking from the oppisite side of the on/off knob on the reg. any idea what caused, they told me to send it back to get it rebuilt but i was wondering if there was an easier way to do get it fixed:confused:

Try to disassemble the regulator and check the on/off oring. I would rather send it to Kingman and get it rebuilt. That way they'll fix it for sure.

It happened to me. I took it apart and everything looked normal to me but there was still the problem. I tried replacing the o-rings but no luck. I ended up just sending it to kingman and got it back all fixed a week later. I recommend the same.

Turn the on/off all the way open, then turn it 1/4 turn back off.

This is really similar to the remote I use on my HPA tank. If you turn it on all the way without backing it off at all, the tank turns off again (pushing the pin too far into the bottle).

A lot of people have had this issue. This is the easiest way to fix it.
