So, I've gone through my list of possibilities regarding this, and run out of ideas.

There's a really faint leak in the chamber as best as I can tell.

Following the manual, I reset the solenoid per the instructions. Still leaked.

Then I tore it open, cleaned the solenoid and used a little of the grease that came with the TM7. Still leaks.

At this point, I'm not seeing any bad orings or obvious issues. Any ideas for something to look at again? Anything I could have missed?

The marker is functional, aside from a faint leak that just bugs me. It seems fine for standard games but any leak bothers me when it shouldn't be there. I'm not sure the rate of leak for something like a scenario, because I haven't measured it. It's really quiet though, so can't be that big of a leak.

Anyone who knows these particular poppet valve design, please help if you can.


EDIT: Resolved through more experimentation. As noted above, was not the orings nor the solenoid.
