My pmag had been perfect and had never leaked until a week ago. Its the fill valve thats leaking so I thought I just needed to tighten it so I did. Took the pmag apart for the first time, tightened the fill valve, but didnt work. So then I tried cleaning, lubing, etc but still leaking. Wtf is wrong with it and wtf do I do to make it stop leaking. Yes its JUST the fill valve releasing air, NOTHING else and yes I did everything I said correctly.

Is it leaking while filling, or after some gas has been put in the mag it is leaking out?

Are you 100% sure it's the fill valve leaking? If so, contact the pro shop for a new one.

I would remove it with a screwdriver, silicone the gasket and re-seat it. If that doesn't work replacements can be purchased in the Pro Shop.
