Leaks down the barrel are always leaks from the valve. I would venture a guess that the valve body o-rings have deteriorated.

Think of the gun like a Spyder, just with a ram instead of a hammer, and an LPR instead of a volumizer.

Okay thanks that's what I figured from reading the manual. How do I tank lpr off so I can get to the valve?

They are a bear to get off. Donít expect to pull it without marring the hell out of the stock one, especially if itís never been off. You can try some silicone oil around the lip and tap at it with a small rubber mallet or handle of a screwdriver to a while to try and work it loose enough to turn.

wrap some thick cloth, leather and rubber around it and grab it with a vice or with vice grips. They're not the easiest thing to remove.
