Dm8 air leak, no idea why

So i went to the field last weekend for the first time this season. I got a dm14 (outstanding gun) so i was using that but my buddy doesnt have a gun so i set him up with my old dm8. Turns out it was leaking air out of the barrel. I assumed it was the o rings on the bolt so i replaced all of them and lubed it up nice. Still the same issue. The leak is so big that it shoots the bolt forward and it even shot the eye pipe out of the front when i didnt have a barrel on.

So now at home i decided to completely take apart the entire gun. Took apart the lpr, the inline reg, the bolt, even the solenoid and replaced every o ring and greased them, cleaned the entire gun spotless. Still...the same damn leak. At this point i have not a single clue as to what could possibly be causing this. So im asking all of you gents what the hell you guys think the problem could be.

Air it up, put your finger in front of the bolt to cover the face of it, does it build up pressure?
