leaking from the barrel

Hey, my ion hasn't been used in a couple months. I've been planning to go play paintball soon and figured I would see if it still worked, and try out a new barrel I got for it. When I gassed it up, tons of air started coming from the barrel. I checked all the O rings on the bolt and bolt stop, but all of them looked fine. The inner O ring on the bolt stop looked like it could use some more lube, but I'm not sure that is entirely the problem. I checked the solenoid and it looked fine, and all the hoses looked fine too.

While I was checking the hoses I noticed the O ring? on the banjo fitting looked a little chewed up, could this cause the problem?

Did you lube it while you had it apart?

Put a brand new battery in it as well.

If those don't take care of it, change the inner bolt stop o-ring.

Yes, I did lube it when I had it apart, but I didn't really get the bolt stop o rings, but when I looked at the bolt stop o rings earlier both seemed fine, the inner one just could of used some more lube. I also tried a new battery.

try replacing the bolt orings. one of the orings isnt sealing so the air is getting past an oring and causing leaking down the barrel
