Hey folks,
I have a species Timmy that has a leak coming from the grip frame. I currently do not have air to test with. Could it be from using HP air as opposed to LP?
Really hoping it's not the noid.
So any thoughts as to what can be done to fix this would be great.
Thanks in advance

No, it won't be because of the tank reg. Whatever is coming in, gets regulated down by your gun's HPR and LPR. A leak in the grip frame makes me first think it's a leaky solenoid barb or hose. When will you have air next?

Could be the barbs or washers on the ram sleeve too. I'd reseat/replace the hoses before I'd worry about the barbs, though. Also, make sure you're not over-pressurizing the LPR...you don't want to be running much more than 80 psi.

it's going to be leaking either from a barb/hose going into the solenoid, or the ram sleeve orings that go on the outside of the tube

9/10 times it's those shitty little brass barbs. They come loose after awhile or if you over tighten them they crack... Get some steel high flow ones, the brass ones never seem to last for me.
