Leaking inline on/off ASA

I have an inline on/off ASA on my MCS Blizzard so I don't have to take the tank out of the stock when the gun is not in use. The problem is that it leaks pretty bad and I can't find the source. The o-ring has already been replaced and oiled. The threads all look good too. I can see no other seals to go bad inside or out. It leaks from the middle with any tank connected so it's not the tank either. Am I missing something?

Could there be an o-ring leaking on the pin? I cant say I have experience with these on/offs, but ASAs need to be rebuilt over time just like everything else

I was able to get it working somehow. It looks like the internal valve was stuck partially open and venting air. After a little percussive maintenance, it seemed to work itself loose.
