help with my overlord

I bought a new to me Ariakon Overlord rx off of ebay. The auction said it had a bad oring in it, and leaked. Over the last two weeks all the orings and the cup seal have been replaced by either myself or my fiend who knows a lot more than I do. The marker still leaks. I don't know too much about Ariakons. Can anyone offer any ideas on how to fix this?

Where does the leak seem like it's coming from? does it shoot?

Where'd you get the new rings? I believe I read previously that Ariakon was one of the few makers who used proprietary (NOT Spyder) rings and springs.

Thank you all for the replies.

When I tried to replace the rings I used what was in the box. The leak is down the barrel and it will shoot about 6 times before it looses to much and then burps.

Ideas?

Cupseal, and possibly in need of a lighter valve spring. I had an ACP 2.0 that wouldn't quit doing the burping thing until a lighter valve spring was installed. But start with a fresh cupseal.

Changed the cup seal. Will have to try the valve spring. Any other ideas out there in case this does not work?

Check your cupseal for small particles like slivers of metal, fragments of dust anything. I had a similar problem with both my PT Jrn 's , the cupseals were fine but for the debris stuck in them/to them. Once cleaned they worked fine.

And you're SURE you put the valve housing back in the right way? Rookie mistake but I think it's gotten all of us at one point or another. Bigger opening should point forward.

I've found that plenty of times before. I even had an old Spyder Shutter that wouldn't seal up until I replaced the entire valve. New o-rings and a cup seal didn't seal it up but as soon as I replaced the actual valve, then it was ready for action. I'm guessing the face of the valve had a minor nick in it, but I couldn't sure as hell couldn't see it.
