As others have stated, I suspect something is interfering with the barrel locking mechanism. Try depressing the spring-loaded ball and blow some compressed air to dislodge any crud that might have gotten in there. And also make sure the notch is clean where the ball engages. If it's not locking up properly each time, a tissue test will seem to indicate a bad breech seal that may be perfectly fine in reality. First make sure the barrel is locking up properly, then move to other suspects. 

My 2 pence.
