I recently got a new solenoid for my marq because the old one was leaking. So I got the new one in today, popped it in my gun, and to make absolutely sure that I didn't overpressurize it through my LPR, I backed out it out until it was off. So I retuned the lpr with the tester in the gun, and once I got to the point where a significant amount of air was being put in the solenoid(it was much less than the recommended 80 psi), I got a gripframe leak. The same thing was happening with my old solenoid. Any help is appreciated.

Turn it up to 80psi. Sometimes it needs enough pressure to seal. Its weird. Also try airing it up, degassing it, then airing it up again.

Alright, TheGuy's suggestion didn't work, I got it to just below 80 psi according to my tester and it was still leaking, degassed it, regassed it, still leaking. Now I guess I'll try what Tick said, and just inspect everything else in that area.

Might be a bad hose or barb in that area

How do I tell if a barb is bad? I inspected the hose, and I don't see any obvious cracks or anything.

seperate the gripframe and body, gas it up, and see where the leak is coming from.

Is that safe? The last time I aired up a CP ASA with it relatively unanchored, I blew a fitting. It was that specific ASA, but still CP.

It leaks out the fitting whenever I air it up with the grip frame off.

The one coming out the asa. Its not from the threads, the macroline just can't create a seal.

I fixed it actually. I maintenanced the LPR, didn't work. Then I removed and put back on the microline, and that somehow fixed it. Not questioning why since it worked.

Nevermind, started leaking out of the same place again the next time I aired it up.

Have you replaced the line from the LPR to the noid? Also, take the manifold off the noid, and make sure there are no missing little o-rings. Lightly lube the tiny o-rings with dow 55 and then try to air it up again.

Thank you for saying this! I just remembered that two small orings fell out of my gun that I didn't know what to do with. I'm pretty sure they sealed the solenoid with the rest of the bolt. I'll try putting those in now.

Alright, the orings are in place, but it's still leaking. I guess it has to be the hose and/or barbs.

Can anyone link me to where I can buy the new hose and barbs? Can't find anything for some reason.
