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.

I have a leak.

I used a 15" piece of 7/8" .065 cromoly tubing to bulk my 2240. I pressurized it to test for leaks and it seems to be leaking by the new Max flow valve face. If it were the valve seat, the leak would be coming out the barrel right? The leak is coming from the body. I polished the inside of the tube with fine steel wool on a stick in a drill. Came out very shiny. I also put some oil on all the O rings. Do I need to get a larger O ring?
