We replaced all the bolt orings. Still a small leak. We then removed the solenoid cleaned up the area. When we put it back together at first no leak then it restarted.

First, where in PA are you? Im in coatesville/lancaster area. 2nd. I would make sure one last time that the orings were the right size. Then I would turn my reg all the way off. air up. Slowly increase and shoot a few shots in the process. always seems to work for me.

I am an hour south of Erie. So by airing up slowly in "seat's" it? Pretty sure about the o-rings.

On my buddies PMR I took the solenoid off twice, before it seated O.K. on the third attempt. Make sure its super clean and lubed. I originally thought the gasket was fubar'd but it was just a little fussy to get in and seat properly. And it also had the tiniest leak, had to put your ear right on the gun to hear it.

mines having this problem right now. It started out as the tiniest leak and i isolated it down to this gasket but i just cant get the damn thing seated right. I did as you suggested, turned the reg down all the way and slowly increased, it sounded like it had sat right, then bam it starts leaking like crazy again... Kinda getting frustrated, its a brand new gun.

where can i find dow 33 or 55 locally? is it basicly a PB only lube or could i find some at like a hardware store?

and would dow 33 be an ok lube to normally use, 55 to swell stuff?

i might try this before taking it in.... also does it like permanently swell it and ruine it?

thanks stait for the update.

dow 33 can be found at most pb stores under different names like Smart Parts Sl33k, Dye Slick, etc. dow 33 is the lube Dye wants you to use.

dow 55 can sometimes be found at pb stores. most of it can be found online. dow 55 swells o rings. the only markers that uses dow 55 is Bob Long markers.

do NOT use dow 55 on Dye/Proto markers.

I have a PMR that is leaking out of the front. I replaced all the orings on the bolt assembly and lubed them all with dow 33 (sl33k). It still leaks out of the front. I turned down the pressure and slowly turned it up and it still leaks and I turned it up to try and "pop" it in to place and it still leaks. What other issues could be causing the leak down the barrel? I'm asking this just because I know the Invert Mini leaks down the barrel when the solenoid goes bad. Does the PMR do the same thing?

Yo man, I have a PMR as well.
The leak you are talking about has to do with the gasket itself and leveled position of the solenoid. Remove the grip frame from the body, unscrew the solenoid, re-lube the metal surface where the rubber gasket goes as well as the gasket and re-tighten it to the body.

If there is still a small leak, remove the grip frame again, check the spaces on both sides of the solenoid, in my case, the side with the eye wire was closer than the other side so I used a small piece of paper, folded it up a few times and placed it in the smaller gap so it pushes the solenoid enough to the other side to stop the leak. in my case it worked, if you would like me to show you pictures in a step by step process let me know.

There is a guy in the BST selling the gaskets for 12 dollars a piece I believe. Or you can just get it straight from Dye, which I think is about 20 dollars?

yeah that is me now lol. I am selling the gaskets. I am working on getting more in, its just taking longer then I expected. I havent had a chance to open up the 09's or 2010's yet. Can someone let me know if the gaskets are the same? I am having these gaskets custom made in a large batch, so it would help me know if I need more then one design.
