I'm buying an Overlord and here is the problem that the guys says it's having:

"I just test fired the pistol, and there may be a small leak (NOT A DEFECT/PROBLEM) due to higher pressure from a freshly inserted 12 gram. I think this is a regular occurrence, and the Co2 lost is minuscule (possibly not even a leak at all). So minuscule in fact that it may only decrease your total amount of shots off one 12 gram by zero to none. I've never noticed it before by the way. This disappears after 3-5 shots as the pressure lessens"

Is this something to worry about? Should I replace the puncture pin to stop this?
Looking for ideas please.
Thanks
James

The seal around the pin is most likely the culprit as it freezes instantly when co2 is inserted, after acouple of shots the temp rises and it forms a better seal, try rubbing some oil around on that seal, or around the end of the cartridge.

More than likely the seal around the puncture pin, however, if its coming from somewhere else, it could be a bad cupseal. Once you replace that you should be ok.

It does sound its like its just the puncture pin seal though...

I use to have an Overlord, but never experienced any leaks. I always put a drop of oil on the tip of the cartridge (when I could) to help lubricate the puncture seal. Also, make sure that you use a cartridge that has a smooth tip such as Brass Eagle. The Crossman cartridges have a ridge or cap-like tip that usually hangs up in the chamber and the cartridge will stick and not eject.

All good points. Try the oil first, then go to the oring. Oring may have a knick in it.

SGTSavage, did the overlord turn out well in the end? My friend wanted some advice on whether or not to buy one and I told him I knew where I could find out.

I oiled it up before putting in the CO2 and I had no leaks on it at all. Worked like a charm!
