I have two magazine that randomly started leaking. Both worked fine but now release all the gas. I use propane with silicon and then release valve is tightened. Any answers?

Could you be more specific as to when they release all the gas? Assuming it's the release valve, does it dump the gas right after you pull the trigger, or as you fill it?

As I fill it

Once I load gas it goes out the top

Sounds like a stuck or broken release valve.

it happens the same to one of my mags, always worked fine but now started leaking. All the gas was released instantly as i was charging it.
I stripped it and the valve looks to be fine, i re-lubed all o-rings and add some teflon tape and now i leaks but not from the top. I seems to be leaking now from the upper part of the mag, i think is the o-ring that holds both parts of the mag #235

I'm going to order this part and some others soon hope replacing this the mag works perfect again...
