Banjo O-rings?

So I have narrowed down a leak in my gun to the rear banjo... and in stead of replacing the banjo I was told to first replace the oring on the banjo. While I dont mind buying a new banjo I plan on playing this weekend and with the time crunch I would like to attempt to just replacing the orings before I play.


My questions is that if i go down the store and buy some orings, what size orings do I need to buy? Also I was told you need to greese them for them to swell... what type of greese do i need to buy?

Sorry for all the noob questions but im still fairly new to all this and want to do it right.

Thank you.

Grease isn't necessary. I've used my Epiphany without any grease on the banjo orings without any trouble, but it doesn't hurt to help. Dow 33 will keep it slick, but Dow 55 will cause the orings to swell a bit creating the better seal.

I am unsure of the orings at the moment.. I believe they are 3.0 x 1.5mm, but i am most likely wrong. I'll update tonight when I check what size they are in my tool kit.

EDIT: My apologies for the delay, the banjo oring's are a size 3 x 1.5mm.
