Well, I just drilled out the ASA on my Sonix like it said on otters site, and when I go to shoot it after a couple shots it starts firing like CRAZY. Its called burping right? Anyway, I've never had this happen before I drilled out the ASA. Did I do somthing wrong? I'm using Co2 if that helps. Thanks

Can you get a pic? If you did it correctly that shouldnt be happening. If you have a reg turn the pressure up.

and please don't take offense to me asking this.

You do have air in the tank right?

08Lud08 the stock Sonix does not have a stock reg and nothing in his sig says he added one.

i am not familliar with the sonix is that electric. if it is take out the sear spring and stretch it a little thtn put it back and it should work again. i had to do that after i drilled out mine.

I know the stock sonix doesnt have reg. I'm saying if he did have a reg. Also is your tank filled?

kidonfire
10-03-2006, 12:25 PM

I'm pretty sure you drilled the wrong thing.

kidonfire
10-03-2006, 12:52 PM
well on his site, he says "When drilling your holes bigger, I will suggest that you drill out the stock kingman bottomline if you are using it. This is basically the same concept. Drill out the holes to make them bigger." The ASA is the same as the bottomline right?

Come on, I need some help here. Sorry if this is considered upping but I'm playing in a week and I need this fixed.

You are jack-hammering, correct? Your sear isn't catching the hammer, stopping the bolt.

You are probably going to have to get a new VA (assault Block) and regulator to reduce your psi to something the marker can use...say around 400 psi now....lol

soooooo, my marker has too much air going through it? wow. I will need both or can I just get a reg?

druid

depends on the VA design. If the gas-through is the type that screws ONTO the VA then you will need to replace it (the VA). If your va is the type that allows you to screw a gas-through or tank directly INTO it, then you can just get a reg and install that...then run your hose from the reg to the ASA.

I have a Spyder Sonix, so it screws into it right?

druid
10-06-2006, 04:09 PM
I can't answer that. Look at your marker and take the foregrip off. Does the foregrip screw ONTO the VA or INTO it?

kidonfire
10-06-2006, 04:33 PM
I think into it.

druid
10-06-2006, 04:36 PM
well if it goes INTO the VA then yes, get a Torp reg, CP Long, Ergo, Palmer stab...whatever is compatable with CO2 (if you use CO2)

kidonfire
10-06-2006, 04:41 PM
I'm pretty short on cash right now, so what is a decent reg thats cheap?

druid
10-06-2006, 05:10 PM
Look in the sales thread here and on Nation for a reg cheaper than new but the Torp is probably the cheapest you'll find...

whoa, you drilled out the ASA...i've thought of it but never wanted to try in fear of destroying it.
maybe it's burping because of o-rings though. i mean, even though he changed one thing, doesn't mean something else got effected without him knowing

kidonfire
10-06-2006, 07:16 PM
well, its burping because its not recocking right? Wouldn't that mean its not getting enough air? and would it just be better to get a new ASA?

Nenkitsune
10-06-2006, 07:29 PM
well, it could also be your striker oring. if the oring is damaged or is sticking for some reason, it'll burp. i'd say check out the striker oring and such. I really doubt that drilling the asa would make it burp, unless it's leaking somehow

kidonfire
10-06-2006, 07:45 PM
ok, I don't really know what a damaged o-ring looks like. Is there something I should look for?

Nenkitsune
10-06-2006, 09:10 PM
nicks, cuts, or you might wanna just replace it

Hob Hayward

Thats really weird. You're sure your tank isn't low, and that you've got the striker well lubed?

I never drilled my bottomline, anyone know if it really does much for you?

08Lud08
10-09-2006, 02:55 PM
I think it wouldnt do much becaue it doesnt restrict the flow hardly.

kidonfire
10-18-2006, 12:52 PM
Sorry to bring this back up but I still havn't fixed my gun yet.:( I was wonder ing if it might work to replace the ASA, like this maybe?....

Its a drop and ASA. Idk I guess I'll have to try and see...

Hob Hayward

Should be a problem with the ASA. I'm using my stock ASA with no problems.

A good ASA is the NDZ one. But its more expensive... That one looks like its good, but then again, if you don't like drops its nearly useless.

Well, I made one out of a piece of shelf bracket and its kinda flimsy and I'm afraid if I use it again i'll break. So I need a drop anyway. I tried taking it off and the tank sticks waaaaay out. I guess I'm too used to the drop.

just get a new asa, just get a cheap one, there all the same some iwth just some stupid on off things that you dont need, unless ur gonna be like a tourny guy, its sorta pointles for your sonix

kidonfire
10-18-2006, 03:24 PM
yeah but it might be kinda nice to not have that air burst out every time I takew the tank off.

08Lud08
10-18-2006, 03:32 PM
Yeah it could be the asa because maybe when you drilled some pieces of metal fell in clogging the asa and actually lowering the flow.

Jimmyd24
10-18-2006, 05:39 PM
it didnt do it before you drilled right?, therefore it must be the assa, buy an asa for 7$, if its not that then try a new tank, but im 100% sure its the assa. If you have firends with a similar gun, take off their asa and test it on your gun to see if that is the real problem

08Lud08
10-19-2006, 03:18 PM
If your gonna spend money on an asa thats not a stock one get one with an on and off.

kidonfire
10-20-2006, 08:23 PM
Hey, If I got this would I need anything like an adapter for the air line?

im not sure, but id get an on off asa whatever you get. seriously, they are worth it in the long run

kidonfire
10-20-2006, 08:33 PM

It has an on/off

Ok, I'm bringing this back up cause I need more help. I got a new ASA, and It helps but it still burps every couple shots. Then I put my mech trigger back on and it works perfectly. I have no idea why this would happen. any ideas?
Thanks

08Lud08

your sear could be worn, low battery, adjust your trigger. thats probably the the only problems it can have that I can think of.

kidonfire
11-05-2006, 02:18 PM
the sear is not worn, I checked that. Why would the other two have to do with it burping?

08Lud08
11-05-2006, 02:38 PM
oh I miss read I thought it said that it would burp a couple shots and then recock.

kidonfire

That's what happens...

Hob Hayward
11-05-2006, 05:15 PM
Did you shim the noid? And is there any chance you hadn't screwed the tank on all the way? Also if you tried plugging the exhaust hole in the bottom tube, dont.

kidonfire
11-05-2006, 07:01 PM
yeah, i have a nickle behind it. I don't know if it was screwed in all the way. I'll try 1 more time. and I didn't plug the hole.

08Lud08
11-05-2006, 07:14 PM
take the nickel out. thats probably the problem.

kidonfire
11-05-2006, 07:23 PM
take the nickel out. thats probably the problem.

Isn't that supposed to help?
