I somehow managed to to remove the reg tester without fully degas the gun. Now the reg tester leaks, just a little, from the front screw hole in the front. Front in this case equals where you put the LPR. Does this affect pressure accuracy and is there an easy fix?

I do not see why it would not affect the accuracy, if there is a leak, the pressure will go down. Get that fixed.

I think my pressure readings are pretty accurate, 55 lpr 210 hpr (lp poppet). Shots okay, not super smooth though but I guess true pressure might be somewhat off from gauge readings because of the leak. Anyone have a tip how to fix the front screw leak in the pressure tester?

Edit: when i try to cover the leak the gauge meter climbs slightly, so yeah, the pressure readings are off to some extent.
