Techt Bolt leak

I recently purchased a l7 he spec-r/g4 bolt and i got it on 4/1 and I've been having issues with it. When I first put the bolt in it started to leak out of the back cap (around the threads). After one or two shots it stopped. Then i took the bolt out and put it back in only this time it continued to leak and wouldn't stop. Then i took it out a third time and pushed the bolt completely forward then gassed it up and it stopped after leaking for about 1 second. I replaced the oring on the back near the threads and it still leaked. I was operating at 115-120 psi (a shop compressor because i had no air left) so i'm assuming that if i brought it up to 150-160 psi then it would seal worse. Has anyone had this issue before and do you guys have any suggestions?

Also i noticed there is a very small indentation in the shape of a rectangle that spans across the o-ring groove. Here are some pictures:

I don't think that this is the issue though because the oring sticks farther up so it should seal on the gun and the can of the bolt and nowhere else.

Pics not working. Have you lubed the oring near the threads? Might be dried a bit.

If it's leaking through the back cap, there's not a whole lot it can be. Maybe threads were machined bad or crossthreaded?

No, you have to upload them to photobucket or something. Looks like you linked them from your Gmail and it's asking for a log in.

Do you have any DOW55 lube? It swells orings a little. Might help it to seal.

Tried that it it stopped for a little then started to leak again. Techt wants me to send it in which is probably my best bet.

That would prolly be good. They have good support and save you some head ache. May be a tolerance issues or bad threads or something. They usually make it good
