That should be the lower transfer tube o-ring. Bolt o-rings never cause a leak in a Axe or Mini.

Ide make sure the transfer tube is screwed down properly, if its still leaking change the orings on it.

Had a buddy have the same problem on his. He took the grip appart and cleaned the orings, lightly lubed them and put it back together. Worked wonderfull after that.

There's your issue, the o-rings are probably just dry from the gun sitting in the box for a while. I'd do a full teardown and re-lube to be on the safe side. It shouldn't take you too long, the Axe is extremely simple to maintain. Here's a disassembly video that helped me a lot when I first got my Axe.

Also, even a small leak can affect consistency of your shot since it prevents the gun's air system from maintaining a consistent pressure.
