So on my new-to-me A5 I was setting up the RT to my liking and performed the leak check before doing anything by turning the flow control screw in the whole way. As you might know, the RT assembly passes the leak test if by doing this the trigger stiffens to the point where it is difficult to pull.

So I turned flow control screw in the whole way, gased up and fired and whaddaya know, the trigger does not stiffen up, it just pushes the trigger back like normal and it's not hard to pull at all. I lubed the two seals in the assembly that are not always 100% non-moving with some Dow33, the large seal on the piston and the seal at the point where the air line separates when you remove the frame. Still no luck.

Any ideas what I should do? There is a leak somewhere but I can't figure out where. Are new seals for an R/T kit costly?

Yes, it seems to be doing alright.
