Bostitch RN45B air roofing nailer leaking air

I purchasted a used Bostitch RN45B air roofing nailer. It is leaking air out the front around the driver (the part that actually comes down on the nail head to drive it) Is this a simple job to fix, like an O Ring or something? If so do you know which one? TIA

It might be as simple as an O-ring replacement, though frequently the rebuild kit will contain a whole set. It's usually simple enough to remove the cylinder head and driver as well as any O-rings along the way. Take the entire nailer to a repair facility and purchase replacements for ALL of the rings in that area rather than just replacing one-at-a-time.

Even though you bought it used, if the purchase was recent I would take it back and see if the store will warranty the repair.
