I got a Spyder VS2 for Christmas with a Blue Body Kit. Looks nice but the Problem is I cant use it. I had to wait for my HPA a Tank to use it but I found out it has cocking problems. Ill turn it on put the Tank on Ill cock it with eyes on and fire it shoots the ball but then it uncocks. So every shot I have to recock it. So whats wrong? It reads about 250 fps on the gage. Maybe is my vlocity to high.

You are chrono'ed at 250 feet per second or are you running 250 psi on the gauge that is on the marker?

Sounds like you're at 250psi. The gauge is the pressure reading. 250fps is measured with a chrono. Try turning your pressure up to around 280psi. There is a knob on the left side of your ASA. Use an allen wrench and turn it counter clockwise. You can also try turning your velocity down a bit...its on the back of your marker on the lower tube.

First and foremost, have you read the manual? Lube your gun up with paintball oil, then let us know if you still have the problem running it at 250 psi.
