do you put oil in the marker ?

a few drops in the ASA and then a few dry shots

Metal on metal will scratch both surfaces up more so than a self lubing plastic on metal. Its normal wear & tear.

check the valve body for burrs around the rear port. Are the scratch real deep?

ill check it, the scratches arent that deep but they caused leaking issues

you could polish the valve and valve pin for a smoother movement, or you could buy a new valve, high flowing valves for spyders are getting cheaper and cheaper
