T8 leaks!

So.... went to play on Saturday with one of my 2 T8's only to have one of them vent an entire 12gram each time the mag was slammed in.
It happens so fast I can't tell where it is coming from.
Looking for possible solutions (haven't pulled it apart yet to confirm visible issues).

Worked before, recently pulled apart and cleaned/lubed, etc along with the other one that shot AMAZING all day.

From reading on the interwebs's its sounds like an oring may be missing. My first guess (bearing in mind i've only had mine for 3 days now and taken it apart once but did watch lots of vids on disassembly) would be the tiny oring between the trigger assembly and the body right at the back of the marker.
According to a video posted by feloow from Tiberius this one can drop out soometimes and its wise to check its still there when you reassemble.

CHeck this video out at about 4.55, he mentions the oring, hope it helps.

Also check the orings in the mags valve assembly. one of those (or more) could be vad.) try someone elses mag/s if possible to rule that out if needed.

Mags are perfectly fine as I used them all day in my other T8.
I am wondering if I missed an o-ring.. I know that some are easy to lose and fall out easily.

What the heck?!
This o-ring (marked by the red arrow) was shoved down into the bottom of the air chamber.
Compared the o-ring to my other T8 and a spare o-ring and it looks in perfect condition.
Had a bitch of a time getting it back in for some reason. Once back in it seems ok, a little more snug fitting then my other T8. Its lightly oiled but still grabs.
Suggestions? Maybe just replace it?

replacing it should help. The o-rings wear down over time. I bought a leaking t8 awhile back I replaced that o-ring and the t8 stopped leaking.

That o-ring is always a pain to put in and remove. Removing it, you almost always damage it. At least I do, and I have a decent pick set too.

The o-ring should wear in with some use. If it remains difficult to move the bolt, then I would probably replace it. That might be why it came out in the first place. The friction might've pulled it out.
