Hey Blackwidowman don't just change the poppet, try to get a thinner washer to help take the preload off like Bob did. I made some by drilling out to fit the body and then reduce the diameter which I did by spinning them diagonally with my belt sander. I secured the sander and put several washers on a bolt and held them to the bolt head with a screw driver so the would stay flat.

I don't know where you were planning on ordering from but you should try Flying dragon, I ordered a spare from there and it seems to be better than the factory replacement for about the same price.

Do you have to call to order parts from flying dragons? I don't see a parts area to order items?

forget ordering new stems, B50/51 stems are all made the same and break the same way.

Get someone to lathe you up a Delrin stem to suit.

The poppets from Flying Dragon are made from what appears to be Delrin.

Dan told me your the man as well Walter. But I'd rather use your services for a regulator or a new barrel. :).

Garth, thanks for the new transfer port!

So I did several changes.
New derlin spring guide 7.0g, oring in front of brass screen to stop the filter from breaking apart from filling, mm spring, polished hammer and tube and new barrel assembly from flyingdragonairrifles that had a recrown and deburr done.

I'm still on factory orings except for the bolt probe. It won't hold air for longer then 2 days :(. I did the soap water test but I can't locate the slow leak. Should I swap all orings out? I am waiting for my aftermarket poppet and will swap washers on the new poppet. I picked up a 22" slotted screw driver to get the valve out.

Any ideas on which oring a might be the issue. I did dry fire a few times, when it has air it seems to fire at full power.

Most likely leak is valve stem or rough valve body surface
Try a balloon on the muzzle and if it grows the leak is indeed the valve stem
Other leaks use soapy water and watch for bubbles
