Proto PM8 leak

So I got my old pm8 back today and it has a leak. When I air ir up it pressurizes with no leaks but when I pull the trigger I get one loud shot and then it vents down the barrel. what do you think? over pressurization?

No. I can keep pulling the trigger and I'm getting small pops but it continues to leak.

My guess is that you have a sticky solenoid or your hpr piston is stuck. I am inclined to think it is the solenoid based on my previous issues with an hpr causing leaks around the noid more than a loud pop. Easiest fix, clean and lube the hpr. If it still causes the same problem, you know it isn't the pressure into the gun. Post up if that doesn't work. I have had about every problem you could think of with pm8s. Super comfortable guns, but too much trouble in my opinion.
