MacDev Droid with Gold Bolt - Leaking will cost me my hair

Hi guys,

A close friend of mine picked up a MacDev Droid from TMG earlier this year. It has the gold bolt. He played with it about 3 times, and then started to have a leak from a hole in the center/grip area. We tried replacing all of the o-rings in the bolt and then drive train, but nothing stopped the leak. Just this week he tried replacing the valve because we had read that a cracked valve could cause a leak in this location. At this point, it has a new valve, all new o-rings, and is still leaking just as much in the same spot. What are we doing wrong, and how do we stop the leak?

Using an official Droid o-ring kit, gold bolt o-ring kit, and militia lube.

Do you mean it is leaking from the venting hole in the Reg? and this is a constant leak?

Got a problem with your gun? It's probably an o-ring or lube issue

It appears to be a constant leak at air up from a hole in the frame near the middle of the marker. The bolt doesn't really cycle fully but does move some when firing.

May have been overpressured as just reread all that you have done. I would suggest sending it in to have it serviced.
