other than getting a new gasket you can try using some dow55 to see if it swells the gasket enough to make it seal.

turn your pressure down first. it may be venting.

In the noid yes there are a few but its not something you need to maintain really.. replace the gasket and check pressure first.

Pressure as in the psi going into the gun which is controlled by the vertical reg (Hyper2) for PMR. With no air in the gun you need to adjust the reg to zero psi. Tighten the screw in the bottom of the regulator all the way till it stops, this is zero psi. Then loosen/ back out the screw exactly 2 1/2 complete turns, giving the gun approx 150ish psi which is normal operating pressure. NOW you air it up and check for leaks, it usually best to dry fire a little too as the orings just need to seal correctly.

If your noid leaks after doing that then it is the solenoid gasket that needs to be replaced.

I also have air leaking and or venting from my soleniod(2010 pmr). I have checked the gasket and it seems to be fine(even replaced it), and i know that the soleniod vents to prevent over pressure, so since my noid is venting air, does that mean its over pressurized? I chrono in at 265 normaly for indoor play so i dont understand how it could be over pressurized? (dwell is at 16, compaired to stock of 18)
