Ignorant about pumps

Okay, so I'm working on this autococker pump conversion. I got a pump kit on there, but uh, there's something I can't figure out. After pulling the trigger, the shot fires but air continues to flow until I close the valve by pumping the makre forward. Is that supposed to do that? Any way to stop it? It seem like a huge waste of air and noise.

Next thing, the pump handle rubs on the barrel. Any solutions for that?

Im not an expert but it sounds like your regulator pressure is too low to close the valve without relieving the pressure placed on it by your hammer. I would try turning your reg pressure up. You might also make sure your tank is full.
