Air leak
 
Hey, I got an MR1 and it is leaking out of the bolt/striker area, i just replaced the striker, and it is an internal issue so i can't tell where it is coming from exactly? btw my striker o-ring i just put in was slightly used.... What is causing this? Do i need o-rings on my bolt??

the stock bolt should have 2 o-rings, unless they changed the design since i got mine way back when. but, it should have o-rings.

Take off the barrel and hopper. Put two drops of good, synthetic paintball oil in the ASA while tilting the barrel end down, and screw in your tank. Fire approximately 15 times this way. It's going to be loud, so it's preferred to put a towel or the like over the end of the body where the barrel screws in.

do this ^^^^ First.

if that doesn't work pop out the valve body and inspect o-ring for damage, lube up and try again or replace the clear o-ring with a tank o-ring.

So i'm not saying it won't work, Why do i need to do this? what does this do?

Basically it takes the oil everywhere inside the marker where the air would flow (valve, striker, V/A, vertical foregrip, bolt, etc), and thus makes life much easier than manually taking apart the marker and doing it drop by drop. It, of course, isn't as effective as going o-ring by o-ring and lubricating each and every one properly, but when it fixes most issues.... why bother? ;)
