Angry Angel A1 can't determine source of leak

I know its not from the breach.

I just put a new seal in the regulator adapter, and a new oring in the plug.

It sounds like its coming from where the arrow is.

Could be valve stem plug o-ring or the whole front body plug.

I've had that leak. Valve plug o-ring seems possible, but it's been that reg adapter seal. It's not a bad seal but you have to lube it to hell and make sure the adapter is on there tight.

Do you have the right o-ring for the valve plug? It's a fat one.

I got the front cap off. Is there a way to tell if the oring is bad?

You can try putting the front of the gun in water to see where the leak is really coming from.

angels are all metric. (UK) so i am guessing that is not the right size oring

I wouldn't put the front of it under any water. I have leak tester that's specifically made for finding air leaks. But you can make the stuff at home. Just get a small spray bottle and mix up some soap and water and slowly go around to each area spraying. Just look for where the bubbles are coming from.
The trick in making the solution is not too much soap bc you don't want it to bubble just from you sraying it or from mixing it up. Just enough soap that the air leak makes the solution bubble.

That's my 2 cents bc quite honestly I've had the valve plug leak, the front body plug leak, the triangle hard seal for the reg leak. So it could be any one of them. Get a spray bottle and narrow it down.

Definitely a better idea. I'd normally not recommend the water trick but I figured front of the gun, no problem.

I remember a while back somebody having a jacked up volume chamber plug that was causing a leak from the valve chamber maintenance plug. Very unlikely though.

Unfortunately the Grease and Lube card doesn't have the o-ring sizes for the volume chamber maintenance plug or the volume chamber listed. If you have a set of calipers you should be able to measure the old one though.
