I know this has been asked tons of times, but is there any way to fix a leaking solenoid? I called Procaps, but they're closed for the weekend.

Thanks,

It is most likely not the solinoid itself that is leaking
Try changing the large O-ring on the outside of the top hat

I checked the o-ring and there are no knicks/scratches, unfortunately. Thanks for the help anyways, I'm gonna call Procaps as soon as I wake up tomorrow.

There are several other places to check:
1. tighten the front, middle cap....it is the air source for the solenoid.
2. under the solenoid, there is a manifold(metal "L" shaped)
under the manifold, there are two VERY tiny o-rings...check them.
3. Turn your pressure down a ted.
4. change your battery.

try those, generally that should do it. Jay

Thanks for the help guys, but I figured it out this morning...the problem was the o-ring at the end of the Front Plug had a knick in it, the gun is now shooting perfectly, just how I like it.
