is the gun cocked?
does the trigger even have an oring:rolleyes:
didnt you just have a problem with the bolt?

take the gun apart, oil it, and then try it again

i think you mean 600 psi and 750 psi, and if the pressure in your tank is below that then the gun will not fire, it will make a farting noise and sputter and uncock, and by the way if you want to save co2 you can turn the electra down to about 450 or 500. thats what i have mine at and it will go as low as 350 stock but you will lose velocity.

to shorten it up, it sounds like you dont have enough co2 left in your tank. that gauge on the side of the marker tells you the operating pressure of the gun and not how much co2 you have left in case you are confused on that, and since you are using co2 instead of compressed air, the pressure of the expanded co2 is going to be inconsistent hence your 750 psi to 600 psi jump. my post is kind of confusing so if you dont understand it just post back and i will simplify it or something.
