Crazy. Burst Disc are often times changed by the person filling your co2 tank, if the store is related to Paintball Sports. They will know this, during the process of refilling your tank. The Burst Disc will make a hissing sound if it's leaking/not good anymore.
The person refilling your Paintball tank, can also refill it too much which will cause stress on the Burst Disc itself which will lessen it's usage. (You will have to replace it more often)
Either you purchased a overly Used Tank, with Use parts on it such as the Burst Disc, or after so many time of refilling the tank too much, it weaken the Burst Disc.
In no way are you to mess with the Burst Disc unless you are 200% sure it's completely empty. I still don't recommend people even messing with the Burst Disc. Taking it to a professional refilling station and they'll be glad to you help you remove it and install new one. They have a special way of making sure the pressure on the Paintball Tank itself is completed Drained. It is also held in a secure type vise grip cradle, in case of mishap where the Burst Disc dislodge itself.
