Leak from tank adapter

yeah im a noob, sorry...

I just bought a new package of o-rings for my 20 oz Pure energy co2 tank. put one on the tank, screwed it into the A5... and it leaks. profusely.

from what I can tell, it leaks from the little space from where (after u screw in the tanks all the way) the tank neck or "hilt" of the tank touches the adapter on the marker. it's ALMOST like either:

A) the tank isnt screwed in all the way
B) the pin that depresses the pin on the tank is depressing too soon
C) bad o-ring, and isnt creating a seal

the threads on both the tank AND the adapter are clean and dont look stripped at all.

any ideas? teflon tape?
