Allizard, Radix

Please help, I have tried following the instructions in the forum and removed the charging valve, cleaning it, oiling it and reassemble. Still leaking slightly from the charging valve and I hear it coming from the output well (where the green gas comes out) into the gun as well. Any suggestions?

Thx ahead of time

you need a small cup or glass of water for this.

Fill the magazine and lightly dunk the half of the mag with the fill valve.  See if it leaks from the actual valve.

You can do this with the release valve as well.

so I guess we are not worried about rusting? I just don't want to risk it since I just bought this from Evike. I am thinking about sending them an email. How's KWA support?

the magazine is an aluminum alloy, it will not rust.   Just be sure to remove your main spring before trying

I had the problem with another brand product i will not discuss. But i pulled the valve, held it open, and dropped some silicon oil on it and cycled it....its smooth running..least i think this is what you mean

It wont rust because aluminum alloy doesnt oxidize. Plus I have tried it myself.

Actually, aluminum oxidizes like other metals. With aluminum you end up with an oxidized layer that's white. This layer actually seals the surface so there isn't continued oxidation.

I'd guess the valves are type-1 hard ano'd for durability and corrosion protection...

a good bulk of the valve is actually chromed brass.

well part of the problem could be that your clip might have come with an o ring like mine. the o ring goes in were you load the gas into the clip.(you know the little hole on the bottem of the Clip.) try installing one, but look up on how to do it for I'm not entirely clear on how for I can not help in directions. sorry. :(
