    once you filled it stops leaking? you could just be needing new o-rings on the filling probe thingy on the rifle

    On which end? Through the breech or at the fill-valve? Also are you filling with tank(filling too fast can damage seal) or pump (possible dust/particle contamination)?

    Either way, Louis should be able to sort you out .

    Through the fill valve itself. The air is leaking from the ball bearing in the fill valve.

    Louis/Importer can sort this out. Just replace the valve, shouldn't be too much or while you're at it, might be a good time to convert/upgrade to newer fill valve
