Well, the pinch groove desperately needed deburred, I actually found the little sliver from the new o ring. I dressed up the edge, put a new o ring on the valve tube, put it back together and when I screwed the bottle on it still leaked from the trigger well area, so I pulled the bottle back off. I needed to pinpoint the leak so I mixed up a little soapy water and carefully applied it to the regulator with a syringe with the action upright, I screwed the bottle back on, it started bubbling for a about 10 seconds and then stopped. Bottle pressure was only about 125 bar so I hooked it up to the fill tank and ran it up to 200 just to get up over reg. pressure and it held pressure. I have no Idea what the heck is going on but I’m putting it back together, before it starts leaking again.
