Which o-rings blew off?
What's not working about it?
What happens when you set the HPR to the proper pressure, then pull the trigger?

Thanks for helping me out. I haven't received the Pm8 YET, but i will get it by tuesday. Right now all i have to work w/ is that video =/ He mentions that the front Bolt Orings blew. All I'm really looking for are some POSSIBLE things this can be. I will update when the gun arrives.

first thing you wanna do is set both regulators to zero before you air it up. Don't ever trust anyone to set regulators correctly unless it's you doing it.

After that, set the regulators correctly, and see what happens. If the LPR was not messed with the solenoid should still be working.

I sounds like an 8 year old kid talking in the video, so I sure hope that he didn't jack up anything without knowing any better.

Ya the seller is a little kid*sigh* but he said he fixed the leaks and that whenever he airs it, the marker either blows the Orings or, the gun has erratic velocities.

chances are, you'll find some sort of regulator issue. If all else fails, you coudl always get a new HPR(my guess is that he took the regulator apart and put it back together without a shim, or with shims put in the wrong way)

Okay, if I take it to a Tech, how much doyou think a new HPR will cost? Do you think the solenoid is still good just from that video?

oh you can buy a hpr for around $40-$60; however, the hyper2 regulator(which the pm8 has) is one of the best preforming regulators out there; I'd take it to a shop and see what they can do, if you can't get it working.

If it were me buying this marker, I'd take it apart and fix it myself... but iv'e messed around with regulators and markers enough to know what I'm doing. ( I took a solenoid apart and put it back together..just for fun. i do NOT suggest ever doing that)
