Most common problem - overlubing. Do lube frequently (every few cases) with a thin lubricant (dow33, slick honey, hater sauce, monkey poo, etc, NO OIL & no dow55), don't lube too heavily (will cause bolt stick and drop-off).

Check if it's lubed, underlubed can cause leaks. Although it's probably an oring worn out. First thing I would do is get an oring kit for it and replace all the orings. Always good to be safe with a Dye marker that's been bought used to just replace ALL the orings off the bat to be safe. 99% likely that will fix your leak.

o gosh where to start, first of all how much did you buy it for?

get your hands on a rebuild kit and rebuild the marker

this is the most complete kit i have come across, i have one and if you want to keep the marker going for YEARS this is the way to go

Dye DM6/7/8 Large Parts Kit

otherwise this one will do nicely for just o-rings

ANS Complete O-Ring Kit 5x Rebuild (Box) - DM6

you can also get them in just the bags for like $10 cheaper but iv found that the boxes are really easy to work with and worth it in the long run since everything has its own spot

while you dont want to use straight oil on the marker, sometimes a mix of lube/oil really helps cut down FSDO. mostly this is going to be determined by your typical playing conditions

Don't forget Lurker Lube
Best lube I've used by far, and now I even use it to lubricate my firearms

so trim your macro line a bit so it doesnt go that far and it should enter at the back instead of the side

Unfortunately for you, not much. $145-$200 is best you'll get for it without a lengthy wait time to sell.

Yeah I was afraid it was a little to old to be worth a fraction of what I paid for it oh so many years ago. Thanks for your speedy repy man.
