Ion bolt stays forward. Leaks. Help!

Ok well i'm cleanin and lubin up my friends ion for him cause he doesn't know anythin bout an ion and we are playin saturday so i clean and lube it up and go to test it to make sure it works. I attach the tank and the bolt goes in the forward position, stays there, and leaks out air threw the bolt. I can push the bolt back but it just comes right back forward. I relubed and cleaned everything, checked all the o-rings, and tried a new battery and nothin. It worked fine last time it was shot and i put in a whole new board and solenoid in befor the last time it was shot so i'm stumpped on whats goin on.

yes, if it wasnt the rear part wont screw on the whole way. I used to own an ion and i know them from top to bottom (except inside the stock reg) but i just cant figure out why this is doin this.

Make sure the middle and rear banjos are screwed in all the way, and that it is a fresh brand name battery.

Check the body breech o-ring, the one inside the breech just behind the feedneck.

Check the sail o-ring on the bolt.

Check the middle banjo/qev and hose for obstructions.

make sure your running a relatively high pressure. idk where the lowpoint is, but i know you can run them at 120 psi, but much further below that they wont cycle and the bolt will stay forward.

Did you figure it out or not? Sounds like an o-ring. I had that problem for a while.

I had the same problem when I first bought my Ion.It ended up that the little piece that slides up and down in the solenoid was upside down.Take your solenoid apart and make sure that the black rubber end is facing down in the noid.
