More problems with the Mini

Ok, so it was leaking down the barrel, I lubed the bolt, and the o-rings and I replaced the poppet with the current v3 version, and it STILL leaks? Any ideas? None of the O-Rings appear worn, do I just need to power it up and dry-fire it?

Umm first thing did you make sure to completely reset the poppett to seal it up. We also just had the same problem with a buddies mini and what I ended up doing was stripping the entire marker down and lubing all o-rings including the air transfer plate o-ring. Also even if an o-ring doesn't look worn it could still need replaced.

Little piston thing in the noid is possibly sticking, happened to mine after it was sitting for too long. Can disassemble it carefully to free it, pretty sure there is a guide on PBN to do it, or from memory ( I may be thinking of something else here, it has been a while since I've held let alone tear down my mini) there may be a small opening on the underside of the noid big enough to fit a small allen key to give it a prod.

Vibration from just pulling the trigger enough times, with eyes off of course, might shake it loose too.
