New geo2.1 leaking? maybe

So i just got my geo2.1 and when i hooked my tank it.. No leaks at all YEY!!!, So i stared shooting it and after 2-3 full rotors i notice that every time i shoot air comes out both sides of the gun (see picture)... While not shooting there is no leak, but when i shoot air comes out of there during the shot, after the shot... if shooting fast (constant) you can feel the air in your hand hitting it every time is it normal???

My Geo 2 does this as well, I think it maybe the air that slides the bolt back, I don't know 100% I just got my Geo 2 as well.

No, there is no way to fix it. The Solenoid needs to vent. Everything is just fine

I've noticed on my brand new geo 2.1 that when I air the gun up there is a tiny leak that comes from the macro line to macro line fitting that runs into the inline regulator. If I "shimmy" the macro line a little bit the leak dies down and goes away. I guess the macro line isn't seating well in the fitting, would you recut the macro line or just deal with the small initial leak that goes away?

Thats pretty much up to you. Either way it takes less than 30 seconds to fix. What I would do is file down the side that is leaking so it is nice and straight. If you recut it then you risk the chance of it being to short or not straight and that will lead to the same problem you started out with.

Remove the macro line and place the appropriate allen key into the fitting and tighten it down a bit. The fittings are the same as the Ego11 fittings which can be tightened and removed with the allen key.
