    Hi All
    I let the air in rifle run down to 90bar and it started to leak air through the barrel should this happen.I refilled the rifle and it is staying at 190 the pressure I put in.
    Thanks in advance.

    Yes Keith, that's normal.

    When it starts to dump you can stop it by cocking the gun. But be careful to remember that the gun is cocked, if you pull the trigger it'll start to dump again.

    Basically your rifle came off reg, the pressure in the cylinder fell below the pressure that the reg needs to operate. It won't hurt anything, and as Shaun says, it's quite normal. Neil.

    Try to always refill BEFORE the pressure gets down to 100 Bar, if not before!

    I only shoot down to approx 110 bar and then refill my EV2. ;)
