When you put gas in, if you put your ear to the valve can you hear a hissing sound? (gas escaping)

Should i not be?

Edit: fired it after filling the mag the right way up and it only made it through 4 rounds, press gas release afterwards and nothing is left

You should be filling it upside down. Make sure you're not running out of gas. Since it's a we (may be wrong) it has silent full valves so if it makes a loud hissing sound and or you can see gas leaking you are likely filling it wrong. Make sure you're filling the magazine with the nozzle of your gas canister completely vertical.

I had the exact same problem with that hi-capa when I ordered it. I ended up replacing the piston head on it as it was very loose and gas just escaped either side without making a seal. You might notice a fair amount of gas spray around the chamber when firing. Replacing it solved the problem :) hope this helps
