Put air in FD PCP for first time. Shoots HARD! Then leaked, then valve locked. LOL.

Shooting co2 and 8gr pellets i had it tuned to juuuuuuust kill squirrels. Maybe 650?
On air it was splattering the 10.5gr on a brick!

Second fill it'd only fire right after cocking, waiting even a couple seconds would result in a fart, then the next few shots got progressively hotter.

Third fill it'd only fart, then nothing.
Pump gauge reads about 1600, think it was around 1400 when it locked (or whatever) and I added a little trying to decide if it was accurate.

I have several hammers, from a few grams up to 20LBS.
Which fits this gun?

Is there something else going on here? I think the hammer is functioning normally, but the valve just isn't opening.
Going to degass this weekend, seems like it came with some orings.
Maybe the bstaley mod while I'm in there....
