I haven't dealt with something like this before, and sadly it's on a brand new pistol, my new Baikal MP-655K, that mrmarvin sold me(however, this is in NO WAY a reflection on him, or his business, when I got the pistol it was still totally factory packed and unopened).

I have put 3 powerlets into it now. The first one punctured with a slight hiss as usual before I tightened and stopped it. Put the clip in and took it outside loaded with, oh... I think around 40 BB(ya, it can hold more then that to this was a test lol). Squeezed off a few rounds with no problems, run repeater in fact. However, after running through about half the shots or so, I noticed a suddenly and rapid drop in power :? I pulled the mag only to find the powerlet frosty white, so I unscrewed it and popped it out as it released the rest of the Co inside. I chalked it up to a new pistol and that I did something wrong :/

So, had to wait a day before I could do anything with it again so I put it away. this morning, before work, I got it back out and put a new powerlet in and went to work to see if it would leak. When I got home and took it outside it went 'clak' empty :/ opened it, wait wait! it didn't even puncture :o I didn't realize in my haste this morning that I didn't hear it hiss when I put it in :/ And I COULDN'T get it to punch either, but I didn't want to reef on it.

I tossed that powerlet out and got a new one. Put it in, and same thing as the first time, went it alright, but once I started shooting the powerlet came out all frosty, but this time I kept pulling the mag to check, so I knew it was happening.

Anyone think they can help me here :/

What do you mean the powerlet is frosty? They are supposed to get cold from the endothermic reaction converting the liquid co2 to gas form. Just because it's frosty doesn't mean it's leaking. The drop in power happens when there is no more liquid co2 left in the powerlet and the co2 gas left will gradually drop in pressure until empty.

Also, a drop of pellgunoil or 30W non detergent oil on the top of the powerlet before inserting is a good practice.

Tony is right on the Mark as usual! :D
Also the faster you pull the trigger the lower the pressure will be. Take your time between shots and you'll get consistent performance.

If it actually gets frost on the cartridge, I would say you are shooting it way too fast.
If they get like that it will be very down on power. Warm the cartridge up in your hands before installing it, and try shooting slower.

it sounds like you might need to get your gun resealed

When I said frosty I mean frostbitten, cold enough that I couldn't hold it for longer then a few seconds :/

And also use Pellgun Oil ;)

Hm... yes, I might be shooting it too fast, taking advantage of the 100 BB internal hopper. I hope I don't need to get it resealed already, I just got it! Though it does come with spare seals and rings :)

Thanks for the help! I'll try again later today and shoot slower, see what happens :)
