    I just discovered a slow leak in my 2 month old Wildcat. &#$^^@* you FX!!! I spend that much for an otherwise really nice rifle and it leaks. Now the rant is over.
    I see tons of videos and articles on the net about that issue. The problem is some date back as far as 2014. Also I thought there was a search function on the forum but I don’t see it. Without reading for hours articles that are no longer relevant (because of upgrades by FX…another fantasy) to the problem, could some people suggest the most spot on publication for resolving the issue
    The last option for me is to send it back. I am hoping that others have found the most likely needed O ring replacements or repair that might fix it.
    An unregulated non-adjustable Cricket or Kral puncher breaker is looking better and better.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hit the red lines in the top left corner. The search function is located in there.

    Hey Jim, just a clarification. The Cricket is regulated. I have one in .25 and it’s a laser and has been trouble free. The Taipan Veteran is also regulated. The Kral is not regulated.

    Thanks and thanks! The Cricket is sounding really good about now.

    Probably an o ring on one end, or both of the air tube. Here's a message I got from AOA about the o rings on the end caps of the air tube. At one time they were using a very thin o ring, in addition to the original. I had mine apart 3 times, before I finally got it sealed up. Been good for a few months now.

    We no longer have to use the thin o-rings because we went with a slightly thicker cylinder o-ring. The size we are using is 21.2 x 2.65 NBR 70, hope this helps.

    have you located the leak.  Mine leaks on my bobcat MKII have always been the main valve leaking through the hex hole in the fitting between the barrel and the air tube.  The problem with the bobcat is that you must remove the air tube and the barrel in order to get the fitting out in order to repair the main valve.  sometimes if you just insert an allen wrench into the fitting and turn just a wee but it will stop leaking.
