Yeah, Ernest and Edosan both suggested the same thing, dunking it in water. Both assured me that it's no big deal.  What I am unsure of is, how disassembled the gun can be when I pressurize it? Since it's out of air now, I may fill it up and not have it leak until I shoot 10, 20 or 40 shots. It's very intermittent until it starts leaking, then it won't stop. 

I like the idea Heavy gave me too, using a tube to detect where the leak is coming from. 

I think since I can't stop thinking about it, I might partially disassemble the gun and then partially fill the bottle and see if it leaks. If it does, I'll use Heavies idea to try and identify the leak area. If that doesn't work, I guess I'll have to get more radical with the testing techniques. 

Did you watch my video? I'm wondering if you or anybody else had any thoughts on the amount of air rushing out and if that helps point to where it might be coming from. It sounds like I lot of air leaking out. 

Thanks, Stoti
