Question unexplained air leak

so today i screwed in my hpa tank ready to shoot some rounds in the back yard. since my house is quiet i heard an air leak turns out its coming from the top hole in the reg. i did not notice it this weekend when i went paint-balling cause it was loud and its a tiny leak. is there something i did wrong and how would i fix it. was it something i did wrong when i cleaned it? my marker is an 08 electra and fairly new

Have you taken it apart and put it back together again yet? Sometimes these thing just happen, and there is no good explanation.

Take off the air tank, barrel, and hopper. Put two drops of good paintball oil (preferably synthetic) into the ASA, hook your air tank back up, and dry fire approximately 15 times. That should fix most leaks your Spyder will have.

You mean one of those headless screw things? If so; Teflon tape ftw.
