Trracer leak
 
3-ish month old Trracer is leaking, seemingly out the barrel. I've tried just connecting the valve assembly to the tank and it leaks out the powertube.

Taking down the valve and rebuilding it seems to fix the leak until I fire a few shots - say 3-5, and then the leak comes back, and more severely with each shot.

I haven't owned a nelson valve gun before so I'm not sure what the cause is. I'm inclined to think either the face seal is worn (not likely after only 3 months surely?) or that on each shot the hammer is knocking the powertube loose from the face seal. If it's the latter case, should I loctite the powertube and face seal together? If not, what might it be?
