05 Ego Leak near noid

Just bought an 05 white to blue fade ego. Aired it up and can hear a SLIGHT hiss comming from solenoid / near the solenoid. I tried putting soap suds next to everything i can see on the noid and just can't find where a leak is comming from. I am unsure of what to do.

I called a few shops nearby and they are having heavy issues with getting noids as well.

I honestly don't think it's a noid. I changed all the o-rings on the rammer, tried a whole different rammer, the valve seat looks fine and so does the cup seal / poppet. I am using proper sized o-rings and lube / oil for each o-ring (depending if its static or dynamic).

QEV's and their fittings are working perfect. No leaks there.

The only things I can think of are the poppet, microline / fitting, and maybe the rammer housing internals. That is it.

Any other thoughts?

Could it be from the QEV? Sometimes they need to be replaced as well.

I posted that in my description. Both QEV's are holding air, and the marker is cycling. Thus, the QEV's work perfectly.

I'm gonna do a bit more. Working on it pretty hard since 10 this morning.

Well if its the macro fitting you should be able to tell. How bad is the leak? like gushing air or just small? If its not bad i wouldn't worry about it.

Not macroline. MICROLINE chief. The leak is / was small.

I found out it was the microline fitting.

Look Here http://www.ansgear.com/Paintball_Fit...oses_s/118.htm they all say macro CHIEF. Your welcome.

P.S. Microline is some kind of medical device.

You, sir, are misunderstood. Micro-line = Cocker hosing. It used to be called that a long while ago.

Why would the marker be leaking near the noid and that have to do with macroline? Macroline, as I'm sure you're aware, is down in the regulator and ASA area.

Please delete thread.

EDIT: I found that I was mistaken. Micro-line is not cocker hosing though both are commonly referred to each other. Cocker hosing is a bit smaller. Microline was used in some different markers such as the older mags. My bad.
