    LOL.

    Seems to me that you exceed the 100 psi for the air bladder and it blew a hole under the extreme pressure. Perhaps some lint got stuck in the barrel?

    You probably put a BB in first and then loaded a pellet. That's a risk when shooting a gun with two types of ammo. Did you blow thru the barrel before reloading?

    You have to make sure that barrel is clean and free of wads/pellets/BB's. You need a wad/pellet/BB knocker thingy.

    Hope you did not have a lot of gold inlays on it.

    Probably a slow lock-up time which cause the c02 to build up excessive pressure, which in turned exploded because the gas could not escape in a timely manner.

    I'm voting for light loads as the cause. Put less weight in front of a spring-piston that what it was designed for, and watch 'er blow. Speed kills...

    I bet you were re-using AA pellets and the base wad came loose.

    What is it with these Crossmans these days! My paintball gun blew up last year. I had it hooked up to a 300 Bar dive tank. Factory said something about excessive pressure. I did freeze the paintballs. Think that might have had anything to do with it?

    Well I blew a Rubber on my Crossman years ago maybe you are not getting a tight seal ok I had the pump up kind maybe I got to excited and pumped it to many times.

    The only thing I know about gas guns wouldn't help you at all because I have a leak sometimes and can never figure out how it happened.

    Jeepers, Shootlow, I told you not to used oversized loads in any of your guns.

    You may get away with shooting 6's in trap, but when you try to shoot oversize pellet's, you're going to mess up something..........and you did.

    Get yourself a nice 30-06 for cleaning out your tree rat problem.

    Or better yet, maybe one of these bad boys......

    A friend of a friend at the clubs' brother's friend's, mother's sister's cousin's brother's ex-wife's mother-in-law's uncle's step brother's second cousin loaded one of those Crossmans up with muffler bearings and it did the same thing.
