slight scratch inside ego7 body causing leak

I was switching my ego7s stock valve to a low pressure valve and must have scratched the inside of the body (its tiny but visible) now there is a slight leak coming from the feedneck/valve area. I have tried replacing everything and gone the whole 9 yards and am positive its the small scratch causing the leak. Is there a possible way to repair it or am I SOL? and need to find a new body?

Did you scratch the valve guide/valve body, or the inside of the marker body?

If it is the valve guide/body you can repair it with a fine grit sand paper.

For the marker body we may need to see a picture to be of more help.

Are you sure that you don't just need a new exhaust valve? (IE the actual poppet)

Yes i replaced the poppet and it is a scratch on the inside of the body itself. However, i was able to find a used body for $20

Let us know if that does the trick.
