slight leak behind the trigger

Just got in a 2.0 and it's shooting great, I can hear just the slightest leak coming from behind the trigger. I don't believe it's reg creep as it starts immediately and doesn't grow louder if the gun sits for a bit. Any ideas?

Lower the velocity and see if it stops. May be turned up to high.

checked the velocity, was in the 290s, lowered to 270s and it's still leaking slightly. I'm thinking it must be that white oring between the frame and body, it's like a bubbling hiss and if I press the frame to the body the sound changes pitch slightly. Luxe experts weigh in please.

I agree that it sounds like the frame o-ring. One of my previous luxes did this. I took the o-ring out, cleaned it, and put a little bit of lube on it then made sure it was securely in place. Got rid of the slight leak.

Sounds good, last question, looking at a step by step disassembly guide I can't tell if I need to unplug all the board components before seperating the frame from the body. It looks like I can just disconnect the eye ribbon and the 2 frame/body screws to get at this oring, correct?

disconnect the noid as well just to make it easy on yourself. the body oring could very well be the issue but i would give the reg a good once over just to be sure. I had the exact same issue, after i rebuilt the reg velocity shot up through the roof and when i turned it down, leak went away. been fine ever since

Body oring replaced, still has the leak. With the grips off it definately sounds like it's coming from the noid area. Will have to wait on the reg rebuild until tomorrow since I can't find my 3/8th wrench.

Ok so I've changed the outer can orings, the sail oring, the body/frame oring, the reg seat, and made sure the solenoid is nice and tight. I can still hear this slight humming/hissing sound coming from the solenoid area. Guessing it's time to dive into the noid then?

before you do that, give the reg a full rebuild. When thats done, turn down your hpr. im 99% sure that'll fix your problem, it did for me. by the sounds of it, my leak was exactly the same as yours.

Just tried a full rebuild on the reg, still can hear it. I'll call DLX tomorrow and get their opinion I guess. The gun is only 3 months old, I can always send it in if I need to.

is it fixed?

I'm having a similar problem, did you fix it yet? If so can you explain what it was and how you fixed it

I serviced everything besides the solenoid, wasn't comfortable doing that so I sent it to DLX. It was under warranty and I had it back within 5 days, I asked what they did, but never got a response. I'm guessing it was the noid though, I could see a small amount of grease that had oozed out of an exhaust hole on the side of it.

Also having a similar problem, mine is at dlx for a second time. Put the 2.0 core into my 1.5 when the problems started, my team mates 1.5 core didn't leak, put my brand new 2.0 back in and back to leaking. Leak is between the trigger and noid. Hopefully it gets straightened out this time.
