A friend dropped off his HW 100 that leaks out part of the full tank when installing. I'm wondering if it's the o-ring on the valve, the one sticking out from the gun that goes into the tank as it's threaded on?

Now why didn't I think of that???
Nothing addresses that issue. It doesn't lose all the air just a good amount when threading cylinder back in after filling it.

Well It is hard to diagnose an air leak without seeing or hearing, based on a internet post. If you have doubt, then replace it.

I’d be willing to bet it’s the small oring in the action side , not the one on the air tube. I take it this is the older non quick fill type cylinder?
