DM4 noid leak

So for a while i thought this leak was from the beer can or the on/off, but since i have replaced all the orings, checked for scratches in the orings seats, and re-lubed the whole thing, I feel very confident that its coming from the solenoid. So what are some ways to fix this problem? DM4 solenoid gaskets are pretty much impossible to find....

a few different orings can cause a solenoid leak.
bolt sail (middle one on bolt) is most common.
outer can orings (#020) can cause it too.
if you still have the on/off on the front of the marker, the little orings on that can get dried up and brittle, and cause a similar leak.

I've replaced all those orings already. Stills leaks. Should disassemble the solenoid and give it some maintainance?

So i found out that it was that it was the body screw that goes directly under the LPR. I figured out it wasnt coming from the solenoid b/c when the pressure was increased from the LPR, the leak did not increase but it did when I increased the H2. I took off the grip frame and found that the whoever owned it previously used red loctite which doesnt seal as well as teflon tape. went to lowes, bought a roll of teflon tape and the problem is fixed.
