Etek4 leaking after 2 cases?

Brand new Etek 4 ( my first speedball gun ever) and today on my 3rd time ever using it, it was hissing as soon as I aired it up. I followed the noise as best I could and it seems to be coming from a small hole on the LPR... When I would fire fast all u can hear is air just blowing through it like crazy. Any ideas how I can troubleshoot this? Should it be happening so soon? I have shot maybe 2 cases through it and have babied it... Any help is appreciated

Yes from what you are saying I believe it is your exhaust vent hole, which purges out the extra air, from your HPR being way over pressurized. If your noid, or anything is not already damaged, (let's hope not) you ought to be okay, IF you take your Allen key and turn down your HPR. Try turning it down all the way, until it stops. Then slowly back out the reg as you shoot the gun with the eyes off, after a full turn or two, adjust velocity over the chrono.
