View Full Version : Runaway Marker

09-03-2011, 07:19 AM
I'm new to paintball. Bought (2) Victors in December 2010. Only used a few times. One has started to runaway when fired. The marker cycles numerous times when the trigger is depressed once, but it does not discharge paintballs. What can I do to fix?

Could be a few things, I'd start by making sure the striker has the flat side down, and oil and inspect/replace the striker o-ring.

Is your tank full?

Victor sucks?! I think I just answered your question...

Victors don't suck. That answer did, though. For a first post on this forum, pretty dumb....this is a SPYDER forum. Please take that talk elsewhere, k? Thanks!

Check your tank first. Make sure it's full. Then, make sure your grip frame is screwed tightly to the body. Finally, check your sear and striker. Make sure the top of the sear is relatively sharp (has a good edge on it - not a cutting edge, lol!)

Anyone of these could be the reason why. Try all these first, then let us know if we need to go deeper.
