Question Air leak inside of Spyder RS

Hi, guys
Today I decided to take apart my paintball gun to lube the o-rings and do some general maintenance. I have done this before with no problem before; I then gassed up my paintball marker with co2 and then I heard a small leak near the top of the regulator/guage area. I checked the o-rings and the placement of various parts in my gun and have found no problems. Any ideas on what may be causing this?
Thanks

Orings may look fine, but can still be damaged
Try replacing them and see what happens

Also try getting a soap/water solution going (much more soap than water) and start spraying the areas you think are leaking
Find where the bubbles are coming from and that's your leak. If you're leaking from the gauge, take it off and put it back on with blue loctite

ya you cant look at o-rings and tell if they are good or bad, they either seal or do not and in your case at least one is not.

id start with the o-ring that connects your regulator to the body of your marker, should be a size 015 also known as a tank O-ring

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that makes a firearm better makes a paintball marker worse. They are 2 very different worlds with nothing except a trigger in common

If I buy a o-ring rebuild kit for a spyder vs1 will it work for my RS?

You don't really need to buy an oring kit, the only oring size on the Spyder RS is the #15 oring (Danco #35)

i had a leak problem with the fenix, i don't know if the RS is the same way, but the piston goes into a hole with a flat head screw, you unscrew that and at the bottom of it is an o-ring which often goes bad. change that o-ring and everything will work again. Sorry for my bad explanation, i'm kind of a noob haha. if you don't understand me then just look up spyder electra regulator + how to solve regulator leak problem. hope i helped
