Unhappy Gun won't stop shooting when I pull trigger

The title basically says it. I put my co2 tank on and it sounds like it's leaking a little, there's air coming from the release hole at the side where you skrew the canister in. When I pull the trigger it shoots, and doesn't stop. I let go of the trigger and it just keeps on blasting away. I did notice that the O-ring on my co2 canister is a little tore up. Could that be the problem?

Peace

Replace the oring on the tank and cock the marker before you connect the air and screw the tank all the way in. If your marker is still firing away non-stop you could just be low on air or your sear could be worn out.

replace the tank o-ring and put a few drops of paintball oil in the asa before you screw the tank in, between those two things you should be pretty good off

I put the wrong type of oring into my SMG last week and then it swelled and jammed the bolt which I then mangled while trying to remove it. So yeah...sometimes you never stop being new.

this is why manuals and o-ring sizing charts were invented

The orings were the right size but the wrong type of material. The guy at the oring shop said it was okay to substitute but apparently he was wrong.
