Raven Primal super leaky

Hey all. So I have this primal and I've been working on it for a while.

It doesn't want to hold pressure.
The main reg creeps straight to 500+ psi according to the gauge.
The LPR doesn't appear to work at all. I do have a working EM1 and I tested the LPR on it and it spikes.
The noid does work... but I'm not even to that point yet.

I tried both regs turned all the way out, and all the way in. In seems better in, doesn't immediately start machine gunning.

I've replaced every o ring i can think of and lubed with grease.

While using the EM1s LPR which I know works, the pressure creeps until venting.

I can try to take pics of everything disassembled sometime soon.

Any immediate ideas?

Sounds like your HPR is jacked. I bet too-high pressure air is slipping through and causing the issues with the LPR.

Hmm ok. Ill have to find an adapter.
Im not sure why the reg would just not work. It's in good shape.

Just for the hell of it try rebuilding it again and zeroing out the pressure. You never know what you can miss when you’re intently focused on something

well I think I killed it.

Tried a new set of o-rings on the regulator, and I think it didn't work. I did my best to just try to bleed air into the gun slowly and not engage the full valve, but there was still enough pressure to force the gun to fire, and now it hisses loudly out of the feedport.

I have not pulled it apart again to inspect everything, but I imagine I made the solenoid mad.

Arrgg...

That, and my Ninja tank started leaking angrily around the collar, so now I have no more air to test with.

When you say feed port are you referring to the feedneck?

Ya feedneck. Probably also going down the barrel, but it is loudest out the feedneck.

The Valve pin does have an o-ring on it, and I tested it with the EM1 valve pin just to make sure it wasn't that, still hisses like mad.

That's strange. If it's coming out the barrel/neck it's usually something to do with the valve, cupseal or pin. Is air coming out from the tray at all?

Didn't sound like it, but I suppose it is possible something loosened.
It was holding pressure, just having those pressure spikes earlier.

I'll try to pull it apart later and see what's going on.
Noid still clicks when powered up.
