Dye dm8 issues

I'm new to dye guns. I
Bought a dm8 off eBay, and of course it didn't work as described. The gun is leaking air down the barrel. I did some research and all the orings on the bolt are on and now lubed. Pulled apart the lpr and what do you know. It's missing the piston small oring and the main seal mounted in the seal retainer. Soo the question is first, do you believe this is the issue. And second is there anywhere to get these parts? Yet again any help would be awesome bc I'm just getting back into paintball. Thanks

When I had a barrel leak it was either the 017 Oring on the can(they call it cylinder in my diagram) or the 014 in the tophat.

If it's missing an oring it will most likely be that. An oring is placed there for a reason.

yes, a missing LPR oring will cause leaks further down system

the oring is standard, easy find. pick out any remnants of old one, stick new oring in a small cylinder (pen parts?), push those in, push oring out into place with an allen then seat it in there nicely. fastest way.

what's this other part now? put a pic up. Someone will have it.
