Hey guys another problem i figured out today, i got the kwa m9 tactical around 4 days ago and i just bought a 48 round extended clip. I noticed filling the 48 round clip that is was very quiet and no gas escaped, the magazine that came with the gun leaks so much gas when you load it and is very loud, i can only get around 15 shots also with the mag that came with the gun. Is there anything i can do to fix the leaking issue as new mags are a ridiculous 40$ at my shop?

First check to see if the small o-ring is missing. Compare with your other mag.It's a tiny black o-ring that goes around the fill nipple. On one of my USP mags that o-ring fell out and gave me the same problem you are having. If its still there a drop of silicone MIGHT help but it's a good idea to order a few extra anyway.

Since its only about 5 days old, why don't you send the mag in for repair since it's covered under warranty? That way it's free of charge for you, unless you want to fix it faster.

If it's the o-ring then no removal of the valve is required.  Simply put the o-ring over a round toothpick, place the tip of the toothpick on the end of the fill valve, and slide the o-ring onto the fill valve stem with a pair of tweezers.  Then put a drop of silicone oil on the o ring to help keep it seated.

Hope this helps.
