E-99 Avant leak

So I decided to pull out my E-99 avant that has been sitting in my closet for about 4-5 years and when I screw in my c02 tank the air just flow out of the barrel. I have a complete o-ring kit on the way so I can replace all of them but which one(s) should I look at first that migh be causing this problem?

You might not even need to replace the orings. Try cocking the bolt first, then screw in your tank. Most of the time, the striker sits against the valve pin and therefore allows air to flow freely down the barrel.

If that's not the issue, then check the front bolt oring or the one on the valve closest to the vertical adapter.
