Yep, I picked one up. Yup, it leaks. I expected that.

I have been told that there are replacement end caps that will solve this problem, and having handled the gun before, I liked it and thought it would be a fun and cheap aquisition.

I get about 20 minutes shooting and 20 shots before the two CO2 cartridges leak out. The hissing doesn't stop. As I said, I knew this in advance. Apparently there are aftermarket parts available, but none I've found that will ship to Canada.

Any help out there?

I had to repair the leaking end cap on my brand new XS60c even before being able to use it. Rather easy if you have a small lathe. Do you?

No, I'm mechanically incompetent. And I'm not kidding.

There is a possibility it is only a torn \ damaged O-ring.

The red O ring supplied with the gun expands with C02. If you degas the gun and immediately try to remove the end cap, the O ring can tear. It needs time to shrink back down.

I got replacement O rings from Eric.

Yes, Flying Dragon will solve my problem, and will ship to Canada.

If it works out well, I might get another one in .177 and do the bulk CO2 end cap. It'll be ideal for my students and my indoor target range.

Thanks to all for their suggestions.

I've been loving my xs60c for a few years. I have the entire end cap pack with new seals, bulk fill cap and modded caps for 30 bux from Mike Melick at Flying Dragon. I've ordered up some more seals as well this month.
