Wierd leak

I have a strange problem.

I took a perfectly working classic valve and swapped out the reg for a shocktech aluminum one.

With this reg the gun leaks, It's acting like (I think) a power tube oring, leaks, hold the trigger back and the leak stops.

Go back to the original reg and the leak stops.

Any ideas what in the reg would cause this?

Oiling the hell out of the gun didn't stop it.

Make sure the reg seat is clean and facing the right direction

If that doesn't work replace the seat.

I did the same to mine with some help from Ando on the shipping side of things (Thanks again ). I had no problems with the switch but did replace all the seals with new ones before assembly anyways.
