Thank you Will Piatt
« on: February 18, 2020, 11:48:52 AM »
A big thanks to Will Piatt for helping diagnose the misbehavior of my Eunjin Sumatra Carbine in .25.

It started leaking out of the fill port check valve, and when I took it apart I found it difficult to remove the end plugs of both air tubes. I feared threads were failing, but Will pointed out they get tight when o-rings fail and fall apart. Looking closely at the threads this was indeed the case.

Flipping over the soft plastic washer on the check valve did not work and so it’s probably time to pack up the Sumatra and let Will do his magic with an overhaul and tune.

Will also confirmed some o-ring sizes.

Thanks Will!
