S310 not holding air

Mon Aug 06, 2018 9:44 pm

Hello all, i have an s310 and while i was shooting targets the other day i cocked it and when i pulled bolt back it made a hiss and once i shot that round i pulled the bolt back again and it dumped all the air it had, ive connected bottle and when i try fill it dumps out of the barrel both ends if the bolt is back, i hear it could be the firing valve held open but why and can i solve this without replacing , regards james

Being new to AA rifles & having found out from here, re cocking to fill from empty, got me wondering.
What happens when the action is cocked that stops the air from escaping
