Victory leaking from frame/body

Now, I'm not an idiot and I know this leak is supposed to be the oring between the body and the frame. However, no matter what I do, I can't get this leak to go away. It's not a small leak where you can barely hear it, yet it's not dumping air either.

I've tried replacing and relubing the oring, and I've tightened the frame screws and nothing seems to work. I've even taken the lpr out and relubed it, as well as the oring between it and the body in hopes of that being it. I also took the solenoid out and relubed that. Lastly, I made sure the microline hose is still on well and it was.

I'm at a loss. Any help would be appreciated.

What are your pressure at?

Are you using LP tank?

Are you using the correct oring?

Pressures are 80/215.

LP tank.

Correct oring.

I've had my gun for about a year now, and this is the first trouble I've had with it. I've only used this tank on it, so I don't know why it would start acting up now

I took it out and relubed it as well as the oring that seals it. I guess I'll take it apart again and make sure the oring is still in good condition. Is there any special way to put it back in that I'm missing or it doesn't matter?

Where exactly is it leaking from?
Take some soapy water and use your finger to rub it on your gun to pinpoint where the air is escaping from

Well, it was leaking on the right side of the gun, right above where the trigger pin, but now it sounds like its coming out of the top of the trigger.

I know you have already done it but that really sounds like the grip frame oring to me.
I have serviced 3 different victory's with the exact symptoms you discribe, every one was that grip frame oring.
Have you tried changing it again incase the new one you put in was not as it should be? also when you tighten grip frame screws make sure you do them in stages equaly so the frame meets the body exactly square...

Appreciate it...

I used multiple orings just to rule that out, and I did just as you said to make sure the frame lines how it's supposed to.

I already sent it in to get it checked out, hopefully they'll have luck :-P

Just got a call from them and he said there was actually a pinhole or something between the frame and body, so they'll be replacing the frame for me.

I was hoping I wasn't incompetent!

Thanks for the update appreciated..
It's one of those odd ones that will catch you out every time!
Glad you got it sorted though.
