Take a look at your photo and mine
You might look at yours and say, "What's wrong with this picture?"
The LPC is not screwed in all the way(in your pic) so yes, it is going to leak. You can still see the threads through the glob of teflon tape. The threads should be well into the LPC(look at my photo), not hanging outside of it. This is a simple fix, not complicated at all. Change the oring on the LPC, screw it in all the way and it will seal. Kingman has no hidden agenda set up so you'll throw away your old marker to buy a new one. There are plenty of places to get Spyder parts if you just look around. Those answering your questions have no idea where to get new Spyder parts.
