it is most likely the macro line not sealing into the fitting. just wiggle the macro line a bit by the leak and it should stop. it is pretty common on guns with macro line, it happens sometimes on my ego11 when i air her up but i just wiggle the macro line and it always stops.

i know you fixed it but just so everyone knows there is also an oringin the macroline fitting. pull the bonnet off and pull the small oring out and relubing that can also help with leaks.
