dm8 lpr leak

so i just got a dm8 and when i was lubing up the lpr i put it back in and it started to leak. its leaking from the middle (out of 3 holes). i noticed the lpr looked a bit chewed up from someone tightening the screws to much, could that cause the leak?

any advice on how i could fix this?

Unless there is damage done to the orings it really shouldn't leak. Double check to make sure that the screw your talking about isn't a plug that holds the air into the body.

from the back of the gun, the first set screw removes the LPR. the second set screw needs to be sealed, if you removed this screw it will leak and you can either use teflon tape or loctite thread sealer.

rjones is correct. You should never have to remove the middle screw underneath the lpr. It is best to use red loctite to hold and seal the screw. Once the loctite is applied let the marker sit overnight for best results.

Just flush with the body, that way it won't stop the LPR from being removed and allow the frame to lay flat against the body.

Check the little rubber piston seat as well. This caused a leak on my DM4. I pulled it out and a small piece of it was chipped which led to a really annoying sound. Swapped it out and it sealed like a charm.
