Hello all,

I have a couple magazines ( https://www.pyramydair.com/s/a/Colt_Commander_Magazine_177_cal_18rds/5107) for my Colt 1911 BB pistol.  These are the ones with an integral valve and CO2 cartridge holder along with the BBs

I've had two of these fail at the same time in the same way - the CO2 rushes right past the valve and out the top as soon as the CO2 is inserted.  I have removed the valves, ultrasonically cleaned them and the mags, and also determined the CO2 seems to be escaping past the valve-to-magazine seal, not through the valve seat itself.  The valve seat plastic also seems to be responsible for sealing the valve body into the magazine housing.

So I'm wondering if anyone has managed to repair these things and could direct me to any parts?  I think it's a longshot, but at $30 apiece I'd like to try to fix 'em!

 

Thanks,

Found a couple youtube videos addressing this, so I think I'm sorted.
