I finally got a new pull pin for my marauder (friend lost one of them on the field ) as well as a new O-ring for the striker. I cleaned the marker real well, and noticed that the striker O-ring that wasn't really that dinged up, so I lubed it and left it on the striker instead of replacing it. Anyway, I air up the gun with my HPA tank, and when I pull the trigger, it fires, and then it seems to fire once or twice more before settling in the un-cocked position, I believe the term for this is "burping." Now, I haven't put my new striker O-ring on yet, but I have confirmed that there is no paint or dirt in the marker or on the bolt, and the bolt was properly installed. As a side note, the 2 O-rings on the bolt are VERY worn, and have expanded and have a good many scratches. The place I bought the striker O-ring and pull pins from said that the manufacturer stopped making the O-ring for the bolt, and that I couldn't purchase it. Does this mean that Brass Eagle makes their own O-rings a size that doesn't exist elsewhere? Would I be able to pick up some size O O-rings (that's the size it says the bolt O-ring is) at Home Depot or something, or does it need to be the specific one advertised for the Marauder? Sorry for the super long question, thanks for any help!

Remove the old bolt o-rings and replace them with tank o-rings. (The ones that go on your CO2 tank.) Now test your gun, if the burping stops hang on to that striker o-ring you bought, it the burping continues replace the striker o-ring.

The striker o-ring should be the same as the bolt o-rings, I'm not sure who you're talking to that's giving you bad information.

yeah, with the BE markers you should be able to go to wal mart, or wherever, get the 10 pack and it should fit everything in there.. a couple friends had some marauders a few years ago, and everything was one standard size.
