    You could try cleaning/replacing the o ring and leave it at 150 bar for a few days and then test it to see if any has been lost. If that fails and it is still losing pressure, I would reccomend you leak test it and/or get it serviced.

    Have you tried putting a balloon over the end of the barrel to see if the air is escaping from the gun.

    hi tomcat, had a rapid once that dumped air when the bottle was really
    low, coulld you not have a grain of dust on the valve, if i were you i would have your bottle checked out and serviced, are you a beginner at this game mate , as im sure the more experienced members will take you under their wing and put you on the right track ! ....rockabilly
