    I'm sitting here with my brother-in-law trying to fit the o-rings inside of a VS Studio double o-ring nozzle for his CA SR-25 build and neither of us can get it. Is there some trick or technique to this that we're missing?

    Thanks for the help, guys.

    Alex hasn't been around since I banned him a while back. Anybody else?

    Woah, why'd you ban Alex?
    Subscribing to see where this goes, don't have a clue though :p

    Surely OP will deliver.

    Can you provide me with some pictures or go a little bit more into detail? I may be able to help you.

    Well, it's a nozzle. Typical AEG nozzle. Except it has two o-rings on the inside instead of one to create a better seal. There are two ring grooves on the inside of the nozzle and two o-rings, a thicker o-ring and a thinner o-ring. We're struggling mostly with getting the thicker one in, though both are a challenge. If you haven't done it before or don't know any tricks, I'm not sure if you'll be able to help. We're really in need of tricks or techniques from folks who have had success before.

    Hmm look at this knief, could this be it? http://www.airsoftforum.com/board/Chinese-Upgrade-Parts-t206787.html&pid=18446449&mode=threaded
    Different nozzle, but maybe same concept?

    Nope. There are two distinct grooves for the o-rings. Thanks for trying, though.

    Are you trying to put the thicker o-ring through the thinner o-ring to get it to the next groove? Or are you attempting to put the thicker o-ring in on the other side?

    We've got both o-rings out right now and are trying to put the thicker o-ring into any damn slot it will fit into.

    In all of the "Double Oringed" nozzles that I have experience with, there has only been 1 slot, and you just use whichever 1 of the 2 Orings provided that gives you the best seal.

    Having a smaller Oring paired with a larger one on the same nozzle makes absolutely no sense. The larger one will do a well enough job to make the smaller one redundant.

    Are you 100% sure that you use both? (I have no experience with this nozzle)

    Anyhow, to place the Orings into the nozzles, I fold then in half, sort of like a taco, and get one corner into the groove and then the opposite corner in, and then use a dental pick to force the rest of the Oring into the groove.
