Chrono your gun before adjusting the velocity and if you do have to adjust the velocity to it little by little. I wouldn't mess with the reg or the velocity unless you have to.

I just bought the 2009 Electra and when I tried to get everything set up on it to try it out, I noticed it had an air leak where the CO2 bottle screws onto the gun. There is a tiny hole on that part of the gun where the air was leaking from. Does anyone know what causes that and how I can fix it?

It might be the o ring on your air tank. I would change that and see what happens.

Is there anything else that it could be? I've tried hooking it straight up to my air tank and also to an adapter for a remote coil. It leaks on both of them. I don't have any o rings to change out at the moment, but tomorrow I'm going to try several different air tanks and see what happens. I've got a feeling it's not the air tank though.

i would have to say that it is the oring on the tank for sure. unless of course there is some big chip out of the tank threads or something like that, but you obviously would have seen that... so try changing the oring and im pretty sure that will fix it.

oh and that little hole is just a relief hole, so that the pressure doesn't blow the tank off and hurt someone when your unscrewing it.

Alright, after playing with it a little more this afternoon, the leak is actually coming out of the front hole (the hole where the C/A On/Off Adapter Knob is screwed in). The O-ring on that knob looks fine. Do I need to try to change it out anyway?
