Dm7 leak from solenoid area

I picked up a dm7 cheap because it had a leak from the asa. Well I swapped asa's to check and it has a leak from what seems under the solenoid. Every time I pull the noid the gasket is always stuck to the body. Would I be accurate in saying I need a new gasket? Or is there something else I should be looking at? I checked the manual and did what I was supposed to.

i had the same problem, what i was doing wrong was i installed the wrong oring on the bolt sail #15, change it with an orange one.

Here was my fun adventure:

So you where leaking from the noid area, and when you turned the air on/off it would leak from there?

i thought it leaked from the on/off flow plug ( not asa ) so i replaced with a cp continuous and that didnt help. i kept hearing the leak so i removed the frame and heard it from the solenoid area so i replaced all the orings on my bolt and it would still leak. Heres the funny part, i removed the eye wires and removed the solenoid, then i took it apart and cleaned it all up. I then installed it and added a little little bit of lube on the solenoid gasket and it stop leaking!

so i removed the solenoid to pass the wires through and make sure it doesn't get pinched, after that i aired it all up and guess what! it leaked!

i was to the point of throwing my gun away literally, so i went to the shop and the guy replaced the solenoid gasket and it stopped, then when you would remove it to pass the eye wires it would leak again. the tech spent a good 1hr trying to fix it before they closed. so after that i went to another shop since they closed a little bit later, he aired it up and immediately was like did you change out your bolt sail oring, all he did was change that and no more leaks!

i was just amazed at how frustrating it was to fix when all i had to do was put a thicker oring

Can you get replacement orings at hardware stores? I'd just like to get it to shoot lol. I'm gonna need some air first, or hopefully a local store has the orings. It leaks constantly from the noid area, I will try a new sail oring. That would be so nice.
