Yup, a common mistake people make when lubing the poppet is getting grease on the sealing edge. That grease causes the cup seal to leak.

The other problem is maybe the previous owner never lubed the poppet, in which case the poppet oring or tiny valve oring have worn out, causing a leak. People forget balanced valves need love. I'd take the whole gun apart and give it a good once over. Change the poppet and valve orings, lube them up and see what happens.

Per your pm, reset pressures if leaking between the frame on first air up. Poss noid issue.

Back out LPR 1 full turn and fire the marker. IF the air up problem is gone after you re air the marker you could be over pressured. Clean and lube poppet oring, LPR piston and check the shreader valve for being tight.
