C02 leak when firing

When i fire my tippmann 98C, some liquid C02 comes out of the bolt near the cocking handle, and out the barrel in a white fog. Its brand new also. The velocity is set at 240 when i chronoed it. Is this just o-rings freezing or is it just because it is co2. Whats the problem?

lol, thats pretty normal for a 98, especially if you rapid-fire it........ if it absolutely bothers you that much, you can buy an expansion chamber, which gives the co2 more time to expand into air before it gets to your gun. otherwise, that co2 is normal...

The same argument you make could apply to cars, paintball guns, prostitutes, and firearms.

at a park i play at i think its like 250 or somthing...we didnt have any allen wrenches with us and we had our velosity at like 180 or somthing lol we were noobs back then wow...great time that was.

Parks like to make u turn ur veloisty down so ur wasting more paint....then u buy more of their paint...sucks ass.

that is totally normal...you could get an expansion chamber so not as much liquid co2 will get in your gun...or you can get a HPA tank
