ok i had a thread on last weekend. it was on a leak, i read every sticky anything i could find. so i ordered a new oring kit and a new stop. becasue when i cover up the holes on the front of the bolt it stops.and my old stop was all scratched up. i got it today and put it in and theres is less of a leak but its still there. could my breech/firing can be bent or is my bolt messed up. there are no signs of wear and tear or anything. i cant figure it out. my psi is around 150.

I was thinking maybe the lube has to work its way into the oring and expand it a little i heard somewhere new orings will leak untill theave been expanded a lttle when there first put in?

New Orings sometimes need to absorb the Dow33 making them a little more swollen than dry...and a bit spongier. Dow55 swells them on purpose but can swell them too much and actually hinder their usefulness.

yah i bought some dow 55 and mixed a little bit with some 33 and i think its wroks pretty good. got them expanded just enough not to mess with bps or any other performance.
