So i was messing around with the old stingray 1 Ive had sitting in my closet for 8 years and i noticed it has a minor leak coming out of the front of the bolt. I can hear it if i put my ear to the feed neck or the down where the barrel usually is.
If i cover the front of the bolt with my finger it kinda plugs the leak somewhat and also if i shoot it a few times sometimes it will stop all together.
There is some damage to the bolt and a couple other questionable areas on the internals so i took some pics for some expert advice, any help is appreciated! oh and first thing i did was replace the front o ring and even though it was the same size that was on it before it looks considerably smaller than it needs to be, its a tank o ring fyi.
It appears someone over the years before i had it Teflon taped a few of the parts together so im wondering how to fix it or if i shouldnt even take them back apart.
