had my tank on gun, was firing, and then my tank reg started leaking air from between the main reg body and the bonnet. it was coming around all sides of the reg, but just between the two. I'm thinking it might be one of the piston orings, but I opened up the reg (after it had completely degassed) and those all look good with no visible marks or anything on them. any thoughts on what could cause this leak?

also what lube should I relube the piston orings with? does techt gun sav work or should I use dow 33 or 55?

The piston orings may be dry and we recommend silicone lube or any lube you use in paintball but no oil.

So you can use any lube in the reg? Like Hater Marmalade?

I never get wipers, blood is hard to wipe off.

That is pretty broad. So it is safe to use my Hater lubricant?

To be honest I do not know what is in it but if it is for pb guns then it will be ok to use on the piston orings.
