Axe leak?

My axe is leaking through the barrel. I can feel the air coming around the bolt. What you think the problem could be?

poppet valve isn't sealing properly, or possibly an oring is leaking. I'm not very experined on what an axe looks like on the inside.

You can hear it pretty good to. I tried screwing the back cap all the way in and that didn't work either. Orings look alright but I know that don't mean anything.

try replacing the big orings on the part that slides in an out.

I know on a marq, if those leak this happens. I assume they're pretty similar in terms of leaking out the barrel issues.

I'm trying to replace the poppet seal. But can't get it off for nothing. Using pliers on the flats of the seal but I can't hold on to the other side.
