Airsoft leaking problems

I got the gun for 1 month ( a Walther P38 BB Co2 ) and I shot 2 Co2 capsules with it. Now, when I try to insert the capsule I screw it in until I hear a "hissss" sound. After that, I screw it a little bit more so it can "close", seal idk how to say it. But the problem is that the more I screw it in, the "hisss" sound becomes louder and more Co2 leaks out. If I want to screw it until the end, even MORE Co2 comes out and I tried this with 3 capsules and it happens all over again. Am I not doing it right or is something broken?

Thanks!

Wana edit the title with the gun so others can find this thread easier? :)

just follow the instructions. Try putting an o-ring over the needle before putting in the CO2 bulb though.

No point, it's not an airsoft gun. It's an .177 air pistol, no one makes one as an airsoft gun.

Umarex do not make guns, they also don't distribute that gun in an airsoft variant. SOF have listed it wrong. again.

OK I stand informed that it exists, yet as far as I can find, There is no CO2 version. Not even on Maruzen's own website.

Are you just being stubborn, or is your Google-Fu not working today?

No. If it's a Maruzen, it's HFC134A/Green Gas Only. If it's just Umarex CO2 P38. It's an air pistol. There is no middle ground, find proof from the manufacturer or distributor, otherwise it is not an airsoft pistol.

That's not CO2 either. Linking yet another video of a green gas/hfc134a maruzen proves it yet further, CO2 version != Airsoft.

ahh good spot, have used all my Google-Fu so will accept defeat and admit that I can't find any CO2 vids that actually show 6mm BBs, just the link from SoF I originally posted. Not heard of them as a retailer, are they known to get it wrong a lot? Will try avoid using them if so.

They're now better than they used to be, but they still do list a fair few bits of .177 stuff as airsoft when it most definitely isn't. They're great for clothing and chinese accessories like clone headsets/ptts etc, but anything else i'd suggest going elsewhere.
