    I have a chinese hand pump. 4500psi and has worked well.  Yesterday i went to fill my wildfire and when I went to bleed out the hose the tank on the wildfire started bleeding out also.  Well you all know you cant remove the quick connects under 2000psi so I had to wait till it bled down.  Tried it again and same results.  I cleaned everything and checked the pump with a plug in the fitting and it help pressure.  I thought the fill valve on the wildfire had gone bad.  So today I tried filling my Hatsan AT 44 and same thing happened.  The Hatsan has a fill probe so I was able to air it up and open the bleeder and pull out the probe without too much air loss but I know that is not a smart thing to do and will kill the orings pretty quick.  Any ideas?

    Not sure.  Im.not sure how to check.  I tried to fill the hatsan tank again and air is leaking from the quick connector.  I fliped the line and still leaking at the probe side.  I put in the pressure test plug and connectors dont leak.  Im at a loss at this point.  Thank goodness it has been raining so not missing out on shooting time.
