Evanix Rainstorm problems with Air fillApril 15 2012 at 10:17 AM

I have a Evanix Rainstorm, purchase last December from a Pyramid Air dealer here in Puerto Rico. Used the rifle one time at the gun club. The second time I was trying to used I couldn't fill the air cylinder, lots of problems with the adapter braking the "O" rings, overall I am not able to use my rifle.
Does anyone knows what is causing this problem?, Is is a problem directly related with the air fill adapter or the rifle itself?.
I will appreciate is someone reply with some explanation regarding the before mentioned issues.

You say the adapter is breaking the O ring.
A little silicone grease on the probe O ring will let the probe slide in and out easily and not damage the ring.

Had similar problem with a Rainstorm that I had. The

inside of the fill port had heavy tool marks left from machining and would not seal properly. I could only insert the probe in one side and make it work. If I inserted the probe in the other side it would blow out. Evanix (Pyramyd Air) stepped up and sent another that was better, but still not without machine marks. I'm not sure if this issue has been resolved by Evanix, but it definitely created problems for me.
