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.

I know this is ultra necro post, put I don't want to start another thread if there's already one there so I'm expecting an answer from either Chuck or the Mods lol do those O rings fit on the M93 mags as well? Because I check and I'm missing two little black things on 2 mags and have a black thing on the third. So I'm guessing that's what it is. Just wanted to confirm before I spent the money for them and they ended up being the wrong size. Whoever gets back to me, thanks.

These are what you need Posted Image

One source.  But there are probably cheaper versions.

Thanks Chuck!

Also, how easily do these little O rings come out? Because I got the gun on Thursday and they all filled fine and in a matter of a couple days 2 of the 3 fell out/came out.. Is it a common occurrence?

If you are aware of them, you are less apt to lose them.  When I started this hooby I lost a few.  It's been years since I have lost any more.

They will stick to the nozzle on the gas canister.  And sometimes they're just loose.  I've not lost one in a while either.

They're quite difficult to put in.  Some blunt picks to press them in.  Don't tear them when inserting them.
