Carl Quick's LiteWieght 2240

So for about the last 24 months, I've had her on a serious diet. Now I am happy to report that she lost nearly 13 ounces and is feeling so much better. And let me say one thing, when I pick her up with one hand now she is light as a feather. Well, almost a feather.

Things I have done so far:

OEM main tube was lightened by me.
Barrel is OEM and trimmed down by me.
Main tube plug is made of Delrin by me.
Gas cap is aluminum, comes from HPA and bored out by me.
Hammer is made from Delrin by me with a modified 1701P striker.
Valve is an aluminum Disco rear end with a brass Pro-Top by Anthony.
Trigger grip frame is aluminum by Bluefork Design and then hogged out by Gregg.
Front barrel band is aluminum, made by Anthony, drilled by Rich and milled by me.

1377c - Was Leaking Down, now it isn't(sort of), does this make sense?!?!?

My stock 1377c started leaking air on low pumps out the barrel with pistol I took it apart, wiped some grime out of the valve and delrin/plastic seal. Noticed the cone shaped delrin seal was rough feeling, took some 1200 grit paper and light sanded it smooth, put it together...

Cocked gun and put a pump in, now its leaking louder and faster! Dumped the air and cocked it and started pumping again, at around #5 or #6 it stopped leaking out the barrel so I pumped it up to 10 and let it set for 10 minutes, dry fired it and it sounded louder than previous...

Cocked it and pumped it 15 times and let it set for another 10 minutes, dry fired and it was loud, now I cock it and give it 1 pump, no detectable leaking and holding that 1 pump of air for about 5 minutes but after 10minutes its leaked empty!

Any thoughts on what to do?
