Strange leak coming from my Quest...

ok the other day I was taking my Quest to chronograph to shoot a few times (I was bored at work) and as I set it down, i heard a hissing noise-then a loud bang, and the macro line blew out of the fitting on the reg! I turned the air off and checked a few things, then put macro back in and turned air on, and again, a loud bang, but then the leak started to come straight out of the LPR screw! WTF?! I have no idea why its doing this, any ideas are appreciated...

check your macro line it may be old and the fitting may not be able to grip it as good

I think that the macroline may also have been part of the problem, its not the best, but switching to another input nipple seemed to help keep the pressure and its shooting amazing again- but I will replace the macro soon as well just in case
