Question Leaking 98c?

So, the other day I went paintballing with my 98c, and towards the end of the day, I fired a shot, and all of my CO2 rapidly leaked out of the front. Anybody know what went wrong? It does not have act, and the only mod it has is a pen spring for the trigger and sear springs. I thoroughly clean and oil it after each use.

I checked all of the orings, and the front bolt oring is slightly scratched, could that be it?

On a side note, the velocity is very low, usually down in the 250-265 range and it won't go higher no matter which direction I turn the velocity adjustment screw.

EDIT: Turns out, one of the internal valve seat O-rings got jammed halfway out of the valve, I went and bought two spares, replaced it, and now it's working fine! And while I was at the pro shop, I got an M249 SAW stock and a 12" J&J Ceramic barrel. =D

A scratched oring is a good place to start it could be that or the cup seal either way when you have a visible scratch on an oring you should replace it anyway. The low velocity could just be as simple as using CO2 in the cold you can try a harder spring to bring the velocity up a bit.

the front bolt o-ring is not your problem but it is a good idea to get a new one on there. id take a real close look at your power tube, what you are describing is a pretty typical power tube crack, leaking, cant get the velocity up, marker is clean and lubed etc etc

Velocity I'm pretty sure was just CO2 in the cold,and the power tube doesn't have any visible cracks on it. I'm thinking it might be a small piece of debris or paint lodged in the valve. I've found the leak though, it's where the ASA hose screws into the power tube. I'll try disassembling it today, to see if I can clear it out.

I thought that fitting is supposed to be a self sealing one?

Most fittings require at least a little tape or sealant between the threads. You are dealing with air and if you don't have a perfect seal you are going to have leaks.
