so i went paintballing yesterday and everything was fine with my 05 electra but every now and then i would shoot sorta fast and the bolt wouldnt re-cock.. its not a major problem cause it only happens every once in a while but do yall know what causes this?

If its the acs model then you need to break in the bolt.

could be not enough pressure to recock.

the pressure on the tank never went below 2000 psi cause i kept refilling it after every 2 or 3 games

Is it lubed & cleaned good?

Have you checked the condition of the striker oring? Cause it will make a differance.

To break in the bolt, click the break in guide in my sig.

how many times should you compress and release the bolt?

Alot, say you used a dresser for a few hours. Put it back in your marker & test it. If you some how get a chop or it stops on the ball & doesnt recock keep compressing the spring.

It took a good day in the dresser plus a couple cases to break in my JAM bolt but then again it could have a stiffer spring in it than Kingman's ACS.
