very very small leak from DM10 solenoid.

like the title says i have a very small leak coming from the solenoid of my dm10.

at practice yesterday i noticed that there was a very small leak coming from the gun. i went through and changed all the orings on the bolt and re-lubed it. the leak was still there, so i took the frame off the body and traced it to the source, right by the solenoid and lpr. i changed the oring on the brass seat of the lpr because it was shredded, but didnt dive in further. i believe its coming from the solenoid but im not 100%. i took the two screws off holding it to the body, cleaned and re-lubed the top gasket and reattached the frame and put everything back together. still a leak. i didnt open up the solenoid for fear of being breaking or loosing something since im not familiar with DMs quite yet. the gun cycles and fires flawlessly, i didnt want to open the solenoid for fear that i wouldnt be able to have it back to working order for the weekend.

suggestions would be appreciated.

...and yes i looked through the stickies. the easy leak fix thread had some similar posts with no responses. no small solenoid leak thread was found.

Check the condition of the gasket at the noid.. Also I know you you so I doubt this but check the amount of lube used on the noid.. Also just make sure the noid is set properly.. If I think of anythng else I will let you know...

Did you change the o-rings on the outside of the bolt assembly, or just the ones on the bolt itself? It could be the middle or rear can o-ring.
