can hear a slight leak from feedneck

I have a oring kit on the way but just need some quick info. Searched and after reading a few posts I couldnt find the answer btw...

anyhow, I cleaned and lubed the marker yesterday and when I put her back together and aired it up I could hear a slight sputtering/leaking sound when I put my ear to the feedneck. When I fire a few shots it stops but it when will start seeping again. Which orings should I replace or inspect? Wasnt leaking before I cleaned. All parts are together as they should be.

ALSO, quick question... I can use any 9volt battery correct? Macdev is new to me since I am use to my luxe.

Couple orings will create a leak like this,
Outter keg oring
Inner keg oring
Power tube tip oring.

Yes use a quality 9volt battery in your marker.

By inspecting the fitment on these oring you will find the culprit im sure.

Developed this leak, turned out it was the inner bolt keg o-ring. Not visibly gashed but it was mucked up and nasty. Changed it out and no leak.

Still got my issue. I hand fit the orings, but still get a leak.
By the shear number of rings I have fitted, it should have sealed by chance before now!
Anything other than keg inner/out, or powertube tip able to cause this.

NUTS

Leak down the barrel are those orings.
Unless scratch in bolt or issue with power tube or bolt.
If u have a clone try the clone bolt in the GT.


At this point in would have to see it, do you have any wear on bolt tip area behind bolt tip oring?
Is the power tune tip bent? Scratch in inner board or bolt?.

Check these.

I just noticed a very slight scratch around the powertube tip where the o-ring seats. Looks like someone removed an o-ring with a pick or something and scratched it. It's only small, but may be the cause.

I got some 1200 grit wet and dry, gave it a bit of a buff in the front powertube o-ring channel. Bingo, no more leak
