When I was topping it off today, the bolt cocked and started pumping, when finished, it seemed fine then released air from the pump, air was coming through the release valve on the pump, I know it's coming through barrel I could hear and feel. There must be something blocking the valve from closing?

Thanks

edit: Pumped it up twice, when released air it drained both times, filled it one more time and now no leak out barrel?

The valve is the only way to get air to the barrel. Give it a couple dry fires . It might seal up. If not , you’ll have to get the valve out for an inspection.

The third time it filled fine no leaks! I'm sure the first 2 times it was cocked or could be I'm must be getting old haha...did the same thing yesterday. I hope its just me not cocking it and not a tearing apart problem.

Something still isn't right. I only ever heard of cocking it to fill, is when you're filling it from completely empty.

Do you got a very heavy hammer spring in it? or very light valve spring?

Hammer is probably sitting on the valve stem, and because the light spring, it cannot stay closed.

So if it just started to become a problem, I suspect the valve spring is compressed a bit more than before. Either gotta replace it, or deal with cocking it before you fill.. To get the load off the valve stem.
