when i shoot it slowly it works... whenver I start shooting fast it just burps n burps n burps n burps and never re-cocks EVER untill I strip it put it back together then it's the same thing over and over...

Does it just need lubing? (have too say I haven't done it in a while)

Velocity turned down too low? Battery completely charged? Tank full? You could be capping out the board as well...

Velocity turned down too low?

Battery completely charged?

Try putting a drop of oil ("paintball" oil preferably) or two on your striker o-ring and rubbing it around the striker, then reassemble. Could be your striker's getting stuck in the blowback and not letting it get pushed all the way back. I speak from experience =D

For that matter, check all your o-rings (namely the valve o-rings) and the cup seal too and make sure none are worn out

A local pb store should have some for just a couple bucks. Or maybe even walmart

.. you should always oil it after every use for best performance.. just drop a few drops down the asa but then you have to lube your bolt and striker... and your board is capped to a certain amount of BPS ...

Before you blow it up ship me the body. ;) I could use one of those. :P

I do what Bob sugested if I don't have enough time to strip the marker down and lube it properly. It should work fine in your situation, but as you said that you haven't cleaned it in a while, I highly reccommend stripping and cleaning it. Remember: your marker is only as good as you care for it, and if you don't give it what it needs (a good, thorough cleaning after a day of heavy play), it's performance will degrade.

yup the lubing throgh the ASA is only temporary and will bring all the debris and stuff together inside ur gun. id totally strip the gun odwn to the body, even the valve pin. soak the body in some warm water and soem hand soap. dotn scrub it just let it sit. then dry with a hand towel or paper towels and take out all the elctronics and clean everything out.
