gog extcy leak

Hey, so I got a extcy today second hand it has a leak. I took it apart and cleaned the solenoid and than tested now the air is pushing through the barrel with the bolt pushing forward each time.

Could it still be the solenoid?

I called GOG today and they do not carry the solenoid anymore. I'm going to do some testing with using sealing tape.

When you took the solenoid apart, there's a disk in there with a rubber center. Using your finger nail and put pressure against it. If you left a dent on there, it's bad and it needs replacing. Also, is there a brass nut on the end holding the solenoid in place? If not, look inside opposite of where the screws would go through the cap. There could be a crack visible, which is bad.

Usual reason for the bolt to go forward, would be the inside 017 oring or the main bolt oring in the middle, which is a 2x16.

Yea, There was a crack in the cap. I noticed. I fixed that with super glue and having it dry. It doesn't have the brass top. I'll check the top disk to see if it has any issues. I have a o ring kit coming today so I can fix it up. Also been trying to find a solenoid just in case.

So did some testing further on this. Replaced any o rings in the breech. Also further testing the solenoid by unscrewing the middle qev and having the qev to the regulator and to the back of the gun where the bolt gets air. The air didn't go through the middle qev in which wasn't causing gun to auto-cock.
