Ego 10 Solenoid Leak

I just got an Ego 10 and turns out it has a solenoid leak out of the rear slot (see pic). I was able to get the seller to buy me a new solenoid but that didn't help the issue.

What I've done:

Replaced orings on rammer, LPR, HPR, new solenoid, and even washed the body to remove all debris. Put everything back together (properly lubed) and same issue: leak from rear slot on the solenoid. I've done a lot of research on the issue and am surprised that nothing I did worked. Am I missing something?

^^^^^Jumped the gun on that one and discovered zick2's are standard...

Started to leak again after a couple of shots.

I switched out the LPR, rammer, and bolt. Still leaked from rear slot. The only thing that I haven't been able to switch out is the HPR.

If I push the rammer and bolt slightly forward (gassed up) then it will stop leaking - until I let it slide back to its normal position. I thought maybe it was the bumper (in rear cap) for the zick2 and that it was worn out but by the time the leak stops, the bolt is slightly in the breach and blocking paintballs from entering.

have you checked the solenoid gasket?

pg 10.

I actually replaced the whole solenoid with a new one and it still has the issue - so unfortunately, it's not the gasket. I also read the 10 manual and did everything that it suggested to do with a solenoid leak.
