If his bolt scratched up the upper bore, that not going to cause a leak out the barrel & frame.

I would check the cup seal first. Since air getting through there will lead to both the barrel & frame. Then if that doesnt work, pull the valve out & check the oring very close. Replace if needed & lube them. Before you put the valve back in hold the body up to light & inspect the lower bore from the front to where the valve sits.

Dow 55 is a grease that has an oring sweller in it to help provide a good seal. Same stuff used on Timmys.
