Trilogy Comp 3-way Leak

So I got a Trilogy Comp autococker to mess around with and eventually convert into a pump. Right now, the 3-way leaks whenever the trigger is moving. If the trigger is resting or held back, the leak disappears. I've read that it might be because the orings in the 3-way are bad, the gun isn't timed correctly, or the lpr pressure is set incorrectly. Problem is, I'm a cocker newb and I don't know how to fix any of these issues, especially on a Trilogy where the components aren't externally adjustable. So, any advice?
Also I'd prefer not to spend any money on new parts because my plan was to get the Trilly and see if I like cockers, then sell it and get something a bit more customizable to upgrade and turn into a really nice shooter.

Your rings sound fine to me since they are sealing forward stroke and back stroke. The 3way is supposed to vent air in movement as it is letting the air out if the ram so it can effectively switch direction.

Is it cocking? Is it firing?
As stated it should be leaking mid travel. But you should be hearing it after the sear is released (or fires)

Yeah, it cocks and fires just fine. I guess I assumed it was leaking because I've never had a gun that vents air on purpose before. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Check and see if the 3way arm is bent. As pummel u said, a bit of a leak is normal during actuation. On my old pro I had the same thing, I had to straighten the actuating arm and the leak became a normal amount.
