A little puff is nothing to worry about.

It is the solenoid venting. The solenoid is placed differently in most all guns so you wont feel the puff. Because of the placement on a GEO the air escaped through the frame, which is what you are feeling.

Yep, as stated, it is the solenoid venting and is a normal part of the cycle of the marker (as long as we aren't talking huge amounts of air).

Any marker with a pneumatic solenoid will vent some air as it cycles, but as explained, with the Geo it just happens to be more noticeable due to the slightly higher pressure beoing released (no LPR), the location of the solenoid, and the location of the vent on that solenoid - which pretty much directs the spent air straight out of the seam where the frame and body meet.

Air from the solenoid holds the bolt back against the pressure in the firing chamber. When the trigger is pulled, and the solenoid switches, the air holding back the bolt is vented, allowing the air in the chamber to then push the bolt forwards, causing the marker to fire. It is the air that was holding the bolt back which you feel venting.
