I bought a dm-5 used off ebay last winter, when I first tried it out it was acting crazy, long story short I found that the chip and the board were incompatible. I bought a new Tadao chip and installed it everything seemed to be working well on the electronic side. When I tried it out again as I aired up my gun it immediately began to leak air, I couldnt tell where from, I then turned the nob to put air through the whole gun and air was coming out right through the back of the bolt. This is my first gun other than a tippmann so I am very new to everything and any help getting my gun running will be greatly appreciated.

When was the last time the bolt engine was lubed?


It also couldn't hurt to replace the orings.

It was pretty heavily lubed when I got it and has never really had much use since then, but I did wipe it down and try to even out the lube, but ya I just wanted to make sure it wasnt something else before I bought any more stuff for the gun, but figured i would have to get new o-rings.
