Red face Imagine Prob.

ALrite guys heres the deal, i'm gettin ready to sell my imagine, but i have to fix it for starters. The gun is leaking air from the "reg" or fore handle thing. I know it's an O-ring, but i can't seem to get the piece out, way too tight. Ive tried everything. And another thing is that when i screwed in my co2 tank, air leaked out from the trigger frame I think, if im correct. Where can I find the O-rings to the "reg". Thank You.

Imagines don't have a reg, unless of course you added one on there. It's just a cheap expansion chamber/gas through grip.

There's two possibilities on the first one...It's leaking from the top of the expansion chamber, or the bottom where the air line goes in. It sounds like the top from what you're saying, so we'll work from there.

I find it easier to take this off if the ASA is removed from the grip first. That's simple, just take out the two phillip screws from the bottom of the grip frame and it woll come off. Now you're free to crank on the expansion chamber with whatever you've got. A strap wrench would be the most extreme case. You may be able to get it if you have some rubber palmed gloves as well. Once it's off have a look at the ring, give it some oil and put it back together. If this doesn't work you can wrap the treads with some turns of teflon tape.

Air shouldn't be leaking out of the trigger frame. Actually it shouldn't be in there at all. I think the tank was just leaking from the ASA it was screwed into. Check the tank O-ring.

Tank O-ring is fine, put a new one before airing it up. and i took the frame off, and the whole body pretty much, took everything out, but now i cant seem to get the top part of the gas through connected to the block. if thats what u call it.

use your hands....but if that doesn't work use something for grip. we got cool little things in our kitchen that are sticky and my mom uses them to open jars. those work great. also remember to take the asa off the trigger frame (if you didn't already do that).

woah now, don't go putting it back together with any tools.

These are some fairly soft metals that the parts are made from and it won't be hard to mess up the threads by forcing it. Sounds like they already might have some burrs on them or something that's not letting it thread back in? It shouldn't have any problems at all if it's in good shape.
