Is it on the regulator body, or is it where the fitting goes into the regulator?

If it's where the fitting threads in, it's probably just worked loose.

take it out of the fittings, flip it around, put it back in

or just wiggle it around

Ok so I fixed it today and we played, like you said i just wiggled the line and pushed it in a little and it was fine. but i noticed that it wasnt shooting as fast or every trigger pull. last time i had this problem i lubed it all and it was fine, however i lubed it today and it didn't do anything. i did use a not paintball brand lube... any ideas? thanks.

What lube? Probably either lubed too thickly, or the lube you used is like dow55 that it swells orings and thus creates more drag.

no, oil definitely isn't, but if it's molykote 55 (dow-corning 55), then it's designed to slightly swell orings for a better seal. However, because the orings in your SLG need to move, swelling them will cause drag, which will cause velocity issues. Better to use a thin synthetic lubricant.

if thats the case your going to have to rebuild it because the rings that are now in it are junk. go grab some dow-33, clean your marker out and rebuild it with new rings and try again
