BNIB Luxe 2 slight hiss from end cap????

I know its brand new and I was thinking maybe it needs to break in, because even straight outta the box this gun is shooting amazing!! just a slight hiss out of the end cap, I cant feel any air coming out but it gets slightly louder when firing but never too loud.

I'm kind of new to Luxes so any input would be helpful, I have all the settings stock. Just didn't know if I should run a case through it before I worry bout a hissing that small on a new gun, let me know what you all think and thanks.

Two little orings on the latch pin. Have to take end cap apart to see. But bad ones cause leak in the area your talking about.

That o rings there looked fine...any other suggestions as to what it could be. Is it possible it just needs to be broken in some.

Just because they look fine doesn't mean they are. If you have the spares tin replace the ones suggested or start by relubing the core. A leak is not normal in any gun and shouldn't need to be broken in to make it stop.

I would replace those two o-rings, maybe try monkey poo to make them swell a bit? (not positive that'll work just heard about it) and if it persists, I'd get in contact with DLX

My 1.0 did the same exact thing, replace those 2 tiny o-rings and it should go away. I put a tiny bit of GOG GREESE on them and it stopped completely.

Changing out the small 1 x 2.5mm bastards, fixed the hiss. Thanks to above posters who nailed it on the head. Problem solved, shooting ropes worry free now!!
