If step one shows no leaks, what would rebuilding the body do? Wouldn't that indicate internal back flow ?

I just got my first C02 tank, when I conducted step one, the HP gauge barely hit 525. Nowhere close to 800. I guess it could be a not fully charged tank, or faulty gauge?.

I am thinking of going to a inline bubble counter and a hose barb above the check valve. I could ditch the m/m 1/8 too.
