    Was plinking a few weeks ago having some back yard fun.  It was getting dark and dinner was done and was going to call it quits after I empty the last magazine.  I recall the last shot was abnormally loud but without investigating at all, I put it away for the day.
    yesterday I had some time for some plinking and was loading my magazines when I saw something stuck in one. I picked it out and discovered it was an o-ring.  I had no idea where it belonged and after a bit of investigating I discovered it belonged in the breech.  I examined oring and it looked to be in good shape so I just put it back in its groove.  Unfortunately this burned up my plinking time so I haven’t fired it yet.
    what could have I done wrong that would cause the oring to find its way into magazine?

    You must of forgot to push in the bolt or the bolt was not in all the way when fired.

    if the bolt wasn’t pushed all the way in the blowback from a shot is what made it seem louder as well as it can  make the seal push along the probe back into the magizine

    Thanks guys.  My knee jerk reaction is this wasn’t the case but my son, my neighbor, and I were taking turns shooting while I was bbq-ing.  Pretty sure neither my son nor I would have done this as we practice with firearms often, but my neighbor has never owned any type of gun so it is definitely possible this is what happened.  I didn’t know the marauder would even fire without the bolt locked, but according to your posts, obviously it will.  I will keep a closer eye on my guests, and should probably order up a few spare o-rings.

    you have to think about the trigger mechanics  probes main purpose is to cycle the pellet into the barrel and pull hammer weight back to the holding pin afer that the probe has no use so as long as the hammer is cocked the cocking mechanism has served its purpose and is not required to be in the locking position to make it fire
    ​many of use that this has happened to its not that the bolt want in we just didn’t push it down far enough and the pressure backlash cased the bolt to jump back

    After reading this post I decided to look for the breech o-ring in my .25 Mrod. Ignorant question–is the o-ring a clear color? I was looking for a typical black o-ring and don’t see one. I think I’m seeing (hard to tell for sure) what would be a clear o-ring but I really don’t want to try to pull it out to check. ???
    Thanks guys!

    Yes, the stock breech oring is a clearish color.
