First off, make sure it's clean, and lubed with a quality oil made for paintball.
If you're sure the o-rings are good (as in relatively new) it's pretty hard to tell just from looking as it doesn't take a lot of damage to leak air.
Try a different tank, just to be sure. Make sure it's full.
**** it. If that stops it there's a clue.
If it's had some use it's possible to have a bad/weak spring and the valve isn't closing entirely. Make sure your velocity is less then 300fps.
Check out your local airsmith or field and they should be able to get you squared away if none of that helps.
Play hard, play safe, play with honor!

Sounds like it needs to be oiled. A couple of drops in the small hole where your bottle screws on.
Replace bottle and dry fire to see if you got it. Cleaning is just as important. Internals need to be cleaned
and lubed often. I know it's late but hope it helps someone.

The part that is bad Tippmann calls a "ball latch". It's a small orange rubber part that keeps the ball in place before the marker is fired. The parts is inexpensive it is common in most paintball stores or can be found online at www.tippmannparts.com
I highly recommend taking this paintball marker to a local pro shop to have the part replaced. You can service this marker at home but is not easy to put together if you have experience working on then, they have a few springs under tention that make it tough to put back together. If you are interested in doing the repair yourself I highly recommend doing it on on a clean floor in a clean room so when you disassemble it it will be easier to find the springs that could shoot out.
One thing that will make it easier is to leave the feedneck on. It will keep one less spring from jumping out at you, just a tip from a pro. I also highly recommend not using a spray lubricant and to only use oils in you tippmann made for paintball guns.
