Re: Fixing ASG CZ P-09 25 rd. CO2 Pistol Magazine

most likely have damaged O-rings.

I went to an industrial supply shop years ago and bought an assortment kit of small o-rings. it cost me a about $40 or so, but I still have lots of O-rings left and it has saved my rear several times, especially with leaky gas mags.

before you decide to go that route, WBB's are more directed towards HPA guns where they can be overvolumed to compensate for the gap around the BB. It takes a lot more to get that same effect in an AEG, so they tend not to work as well.
