DM5 down barrel leaking

Okay guys ! I just bought a used DM5 virtue eyes, virtue board. I aired it up and there was a big leak coming out from the barrel and i couldnt fire.
I put some lube on the oring like the manual said to, and i now i can fire but still have a huge leak from the barrel. Oh yah ... i changed the battery for a new one.

This is my first spoolvalve gun, and im not used with them. It's probably just an Oring , but which one ?



thank you, Jamie

Look inside the Can where the bolt travels back and forth. My guess would be the 013 tophat o-ring. Go to this place and then go to page 9. It will show you where every o-ring on the bolt assembly should be and what number o-ring they are.

Well turn your LPR all the way in and then turn it out 5 complete turns. That will be 75 psi. As for the hyper 2 screw it all the way in and then turn it out 2 1/2 to 3 full turns and then chrono the marker if the bolt is correctly placed. If I were you I'd remove the LPR and HPR, clean them and relube them. If the O-rings are bad change them out. Then go through that manual I posted in this thread. Learn about your DM5. Go through the settings on the board and check the settings to see how close they are to stock. Just go through your marker with manual right next to you.

I cleaned the HPR and LPR... both are now clean. I turn the On|Off and i can shoot like a full loader. and the the bolt starts to freak out. I take the bolt off and lube it again. it works again for a full hopper and does the same thing over and over. And even sometimes my board close when i try to fire. I have the Virtue board

Ok now you may have a weak battery. It can mess with the board and not fully power the solenoid. Get yourself either an Energizer, Duracell or Pure Energy Paintball Battery and install it.

Replace your bolt-sail o-ring and you'll be golden. It works for a little bit after you lube it until the lube wears off and it leaks.
Also, if your eyes have a prob, I believe it limits itself to 8bps, I may be wrong on this though.

ya, mainly just change the bolt sail oring. i find that causes 9 out of 10 dm leaks. even if its a leak from the weirdest spots.
