Try pulling the pin and blowing compressed air into the tank. If that does not work, spray a little silicone lube into there. At least that is how I have always been told to do it.

If all else fails, Lube the pin LIBERALLY, then apply a coating of plumbers goop to the pin and the back of the tank, and let dry. Now you have a homemade O-ring of sorts that makes up for the failing one on the inside of the tank.

Only problem is, if you don't lube the pin enough, then it gets glued in place.

Kid Flash's advice is sound, and has helped me with leaky tanks. The fact that it started leaking after you removed it as an integration leads me to believe you probably bent the firing pin, preventing the internal o-rings from seating, which is probably not repairable. Fortunately, brand new mega missiles are only $5. Time for a trip to 5 Below.

It's important to use two pairs of pliers when bending a tank pin to hook up a trigger: use one immediately behind where it actually enters the tank (so it stays perfectly straight), and another pair to make the bend. You can always try to bend it back, but I've personally had very little luck with that.
