Just lube the o-ring on the piston and you should be fine.

which ring? The ring on the silver piston, the ring on the chamber-seat conenction, or the seat to front block connection?

Anyway, just lube both surfaces of the ring's contact points and use a flaw-free ring.

it's the oring on the piston. everything seems normal with the lpr but it just keeps chewing the hell out if the orings put into it. the 3rd party has tried multipul types of lube on the oring but it still keeps getting destroyed. hes using hi quality orings too. also should the piston be able to slide fairly easly? hes going to a shop tonight to see if a timmy tech knows what is going on, but what do you guys think?

Yes, the piston should be easy to remove from the regulator.

He should run a Q-tip around the seat surface of the lpr tube and if it shreds the Qtip, then he needs to de-burr the inside surface.

Is the O-ring the correct size?
