View Full Version : My First ION

05-07-2008, 03:39 PM
Well here I am with my first ion. The eyes are fried I know that much. But when I apply air, turn on the gun, turn eyes off, and fire. All I get is a little air discharge from the little black cylinder thing in the battery compartment. there no bolt movement what so ever. Just that little discharge. Pressure is at 225.

Is this a op error? Am I missing something? Or is something wrong with the gun?

your dwell must be way off. I opperate my ion at 120-psi. Mess around with your dwell until it fires.

should I start from low or high?

make sure all the barbs are connected and the hoses aren't damaged. 225 psi is way high. And dwell can't be the problem now that I think about it. Ask ace, he might be able to help you better than me.
