So my ego 8 has a leak coming from one of the low pressure hoses connecting the solenoid and qev block. I figured out that it was the hose when I removed the grip frame from the body of the gun to try and find it but the leaked stopped, until I pushed on the solenoid and heard the leak again. When I pushed on the solenoid it pushed up against the hose and caused it to leak, also when I pushed on the hose with my finger it leaked. Should I just get some pneumatic tubing, from a paintball website for egos, and replace the section? Any help is appreciated.

Well, if you've localised the fault to a leaky hose, then yeah. Replace the hose.

Yes but is you get it from macroline guy, chances are it will be cheaper. Also, make sure you put the correct grip screws in after. The shorter screw goes in the back so that it won't tear the hose if you over tighten it

Thats probably what happened. I live in canada so the import fees would probably cost more that just getting it from badlands thats based out of canada. Thanks for your help :)

It is standard autococker pneu hosing, and any pro shop should have some for you, hell mine usually gives me a foot or two free whenever I ask.
