SLG air leaking out breech

I just bought this SLG used and when I air it up it cycles and everything but air leaks out of the breech in huge amounts. Anyone know what this could be? I'm new to electros so any advice is appreciated.

I'm assuming you mean on the bolt right?

yes if it is leaking out of the bolt area replace the orings on your bolt and your bolt stem

This can also happen if you have something preventing the bolt from blowing all the way back and catching on the sear. This might from a bad oring and not sealing, debris getting stuck in the bolt, or not enough lube.

I pulled the bolt out and there didnt seem to be anything wrong. Even the O-rings looked fine. I also added some lube thinking maybe there wasnt enough and it still leaks.

I'll try the new O-ring idea though.
