Recheck the mini reg spool o-rings (the black apparatus that contains the piston). You may have accidentally nicked one inserting it back into the reg body. You need to apply a generous coating of grease to the spool o-rings.

Screw your velocity adjustment screw all the way in while gassed up, then slowly unscrew it until its 280fps or whatever your desired velocity is.

Ive never has this problem with angels, but when I had this problem on other regs, it did the trick.

It may not work, but worth a shot.

Did you replace just the ones on the piston and on the reg spool. If you haven't tried replace the one on the small piston between the ball and the large piston.

A leak from the vent on the body should only come from the large piston top o-ring or the spool body o-rings, if I remember the layout correctly. It's entirely possible you accidentally damaged your new spool o-rings when you inserted the spool back into the body - it's easy to do, especially if they aren't adequately greased. Might want to visually inspect them again and try swapping them out if the leak persists.

Did you replace the o-rings again, or just re-grease them? There's a total of 6 o-rings in the entire regulator assembly. Even simple process of elimination should be a pretty easy.
