Leaky gun!

Hi guys, I was messing with my A1 and was adjusting the dwell and dry firing. Suddenly a relatively large leak starting appearing from out of the back of the gun. Not the frame, but the rear portion of the upper body.

I'm a noob at A1's so can anyone point me in the right direction?

could be LPR or solenoid.

can you take the back plate off and see if it comes out the back? if it is severe, it I would think it is a LPR leak.

Try replacing the seal on the LPR piston.

Taking off the back plate should help you identify where the leak is coming from more accurately, as Methodcaptain said. LPR leaks usually sound more like they are emanating from the top rear of the grip frame. Solenoid leaks usually sound more like they are coming from the top of the gun. A leak from the rear ram o-ring can also be heard from the back plate. Covering up the edges of the ram housing with your finger will usually tell you fairly obviously if that's the source of the leak.

Its coming from the top rear of the grip frame where that back plate meets the grip frame. I'm thinking its the LPR. What would I need to do exactly? Replace the oring or the entire LPR?

Definitely sounds like the LPR. Usually replacing, and sometimes even just greasing, the LPR body o-ring and large piston o-ring will fix it.
