Cock the marker, then air it up.

I just oiled all the orings and it was better. But didn't completely stop. It I cock it then put the air to it it just sounds like it is coming right out the barrel and trigger area. Not the cupseal. I will run to the store tomorrow and get some oil and try that .

Air out the barrel sounds like the cup seal, or the o-ring on the valve is bad (unlikely). If the gun is new, you might have the problem I had with my electra, which was some metal dust inside the gun around the area of the valve/cup seal. It was preventing the cup seal from sealing. If you can't get it to seal with the oil, and you've tried dry firing it 10-20 times, it might be worth opening it up and wiping down the face of the valve and cup seal, and while you're at it just replace the cupseal with the spare one that came with it just to be sure. Hope it works out for you!
