I had a similar and undocumented problem. Leaking from rear of the gun. The hard part is that you cannot tell exactly where it is leaking from (the rear banjo,or the backend of the firecan) unless you gas it up without the body on it. Once I did so, I found it was leaking from the Tail Seal (rear end of bolt stalk) o-ring. The included instructions (including the website) do not address this.
It turned out that in my case, somehow the O-ring had gotten pinched between the rear opening of the firecan and the conical head on the bolt stalk screw. This took a chunk out of it and eventually (about 1 case later) it started to leak.
