    when filling my HW100 k i start to leak air just as iam reaching max fill top of the green, it seems to be coming from where the cylinder screws in to the gun, someone suggested it might be grit and to drain my cylinder and refill it quick, i tried this but no joy. help!

    Replace the small oring which seals the cylinder to the gun. Unscrew the cylinder from the gun and you will see the oring. I had this happen to my HW it's a 5 minute fix.

    I had the din adaptor to fill the cylinder of the gun so I used the oring of that, sometimes you can get away with turning it around.
