1911 PTP Mk I fires only 7 shots from a filled magazine1911 PTP

Last week, I purchased a 1911 Mark I PTP. I fell in love with it, it was accurate, reliable and realistic. I fired about 200 shots per day with it since then. However, yesterday, after I shot a full 14 BB out of it with no problem whatsoever, the gun started to spew liquid propane at each shot. Refilling the tank wouldn't solve the problem, the pistol would only fire 5-6 shots (and a lot of liquid propane along with those) and couldn't cycle the action.
I have cleaned it thorougly and applied silicon to moving parts and seals, as prescribed by the operator's manual whitout any improvement.
If I wait for a hour or so, the pistol will function properly for about 10 shots but that's all. I suspect some kind of valve to be kept open because it looks like the pistol is using WAY to much propane for one shot.
Any idea how to solve this issue?
Thanks a lot!
NOTE: I used propane, thus voiding my guaranty, but I applied two drops of silicon oil on top of the propane tank every 10 magazine fill or so and kept the pistol correctly lubricated at all times.

Venting gas from the release usually just means it's loose. Tighten it. If that doesn't work pull the valve, clean it, lube it and join the O-ring discussions.
