Help me fix my PGP

Hello Friends,

I recently purchased a PGP, and it has a very significant leak. Rather than trying to describe its exact location I will post a video displaying the leak.

When I first purchased the marker it had a leak which would drain the Co2 cartridge in 30 to 40 seconds. I pulled it apart and found that it was incredibly filthy. I thoroughly cleaned it and re-lubed all of the internal mechanisms, however when I tested it the leak had become much worse. I may have found the source of the trouble but I would like to ask your advice on how to repair it.

The Video:

Pictures are attached above and display what I believe the problem is (the hole in the apoxy/resin stuff)

-------------------------------------

I would be eternally grateful for your assistance, and if you require additional photos/info, just let me know.

*edit* -I am going to double check the tutorial for embedding you tube videos, I cant get the bloody thing to work. In the mean time I will just post the URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shJgr...&feature=g-upl

That 12g face seal is completely shot. Pick it out of there and toss a new one in.

Just put the marker back together again and it is working like a charm, may be shooting hot though.

Thanks for all of your Help!
