Weird issue with bolt/air leak - GT

A few weeks ago I had what I thought was an air leak from the grip frame. Seemed to resolve itself after I cleaned and checked the oring between the grip and main frame.

Last night - Shot three balls at the start of the game and the gun stopped shooting and was leaking air - sounded like like down the barrel. This time I pulled the trigger a couple of times, finally fired and finished the game with no problems.

I have one of the early GT's - Does this be a selinoid issue?

I have not looked at the noid but I'm pretty sure I have one of the original ones.

I would check your valve keg orings for fitment (the three 017s) And possibly your 2 powertube ones but I had this same issue and once I got the valve keg to fit better I didn't have any probs...

Thanks for the responses guys, I'll try all of the above and see what happens. It kind of sucks because it is like when your car makes a noise and you can't get it to repeat it. It only seems to happen when I'm trying to shoot someone - if I'm just shooting at the chrono it seems fine.
