This could be any of numerous orings.

It could be the oring on the air transfer tube. Take the frame off and put just a little bit of lube on the oring that sits on the air transfer tube.

It also could be the air transfer plate manifold. Remove the plate and look for any damage to the manifold.

If it was leaking from one specific spot, someone could tell you the exact oring issue.

Man if they didnt fix it I would be back on the phone with them and sending it back, I know its frustrating and a pain but if they were supposed to fix it...back it goes. IMO

if it comes from the trigger area it's probably the connection between the air tubes. Try switching the o-ring between the tubes.

If its the asa I assume it's the bottom of the asa where the lever is. Drop some paintball gun oil in to the depression pin area to allow it to glide easier.

Okay... Let's start this the right way...

One, use punctuation and grammar. It makes it a hell of a lot easier to read and understand you.

Two, WHERE is it leaking from. "Everywhere" is close to impossible, as that would basically mean every single oring in you marker is wearing out at the same time (Not completely impossible, but extremely improbable).

PINPOINT where exactly the leak is coming from. Chances are it's either your poppit not sealing up properly the first time, a dry/wearing out transfer tube o-ring, the solenoid o-ring, or the bleed valve isn't quite resetting properly. Once we know WHERE the leak is (air it up and feel around quick, find where the air is coming from), we can better help you fix it.

As to why it does it again after sitting for so long, lube will dry slightly, orings shrink a little, everything just settles back down.

Did you replace the tiny oring where the lower tube meets the reg?

If you can PM me with your RMA. I can look to see who or what was done to your marker. Then we can go from there.

had the same problem which started in the cold the pressure release valve on the air tube in the grip doesn't seal. I called Kee and they sent me a mini tube without the hole. Haven't had an issue since then.
