I'm a newbie to GBB.
New NS2, original mag and second mag - both bought recently.  

Sometimes, while holstered, all the gas will 'blurt' out of the magazine.  I say 'blurt' because it's like a burp or fart; it doesn't leak out slowly.  
I figured it's a high-pressure release or something, as if I put too much gas in?

I hold the nozzle on for 5 or more seconds.  
Temperature is above 60 degrees.  It has happened at 60, 80 and above.
(obviously) It has happened more than once.  I believe both mags do it.  

One of the feeding valves 'shot' gas back as I filled it - now it doesn't.  Pretty sure it was just sand dust around the seal that is now cleaned off.

I've never 'serviced' the magazine other that wipe silicon oil on the top seal.  Never opened it, unscrewed anything.  

Anybody have similar experience with this?  Or any advice?

Thanks.

if it's blowing out gas while in your holster, you need to holster the gun cocked and safe, or on half cock position

Righty , On my 1911 if the gun is on safe and you pull the hammer it releases all the gas in the mag >.<

Your safety no longer engages the hammer lockout, however it still functions as a stop for the slide action

I holster it fully cocked and on safe.  

I'll try 'half-cocked' and safe for Saturday and uncocked and safe for Sunday.  Let's see what happens.

If the problem persists, you may have to replace your safety mechanism

Neither worked.  

It's a new gun, have barely used it.  

Could fine dirt be causing a problem like this?  Hard to believe I need to replace things so soon...

how long have you had the gun? and from which retailer did you purchase from?

Fine dirt can do this, another possibility is if the safety was abused and pulled on while activated.  Unfortunately the gun itself is not forged from the same steel as live 1911s.  This will cause the safety to be chewed away until it no longer functions.  

The best option is to have the part replaced.

Now that my pistol is in a drop holster, and the hammer is away from anything that would interfere with it, the gas venting problem is pretty much gone.  It's a new experience to have a full mag of gas when I need it and to be able to fire the gun.  :drooling:
