leaking reg swivel etek 2

hey folks needin some expert advice!

Just bought this etek 2 and completely new to the marker. When i got the gun it was in top working order. air'd up with no leaks and shot fine. played a few games today and as i was playing i noticed air was either leaking or venting not sure which from around both the top and bottom of the swivel collar that the macroline fitting screws into. though i had no apparent change in my velocity. i just hurried my game up slightly and finished the game before running out of air. again im new to these markers and before i tear into anything new i like to be somewhat educated on the matter. any thoughts on what to be looking for?

any help is appreciated

Check the O-rings.

That is literally the only thing I can think of unless the aluminum is damaged.

took reg apart. cleaned piston spring all the internal goods. lubed and the leak has stopped. havnt put paint through it yet but thinking everythings good.

also while cleaning the gun i noticed that my rammer didnt have a bumper on the rear of it...i did some research and people were talking about an internal one on the ram cap but they also had an external one on the shaft. gun seems to work fine. is this an issue???

You could just have the standard rammer that has no bumper.

That sounds just like the Eteks Zick rammer. Look like this?

It's a Zick 1 kit then. Zick 2's were not made for the Etek1/2 markers because the rammer housing is different.
