I came home from paint ball and tryed to clean my gun by taking the velocity thing off then puttin it all back in when it shot across the room:) .
After that when i tryed to cock it and for some reason it doesn't stay back.
Why and how can i fix this?
If it's not working because i put it back in rong ill tell you how i have it.......
From back to front it goes blue velocity nob thing , metal circle thing , black plastic thing (that kinda looks like a big screw ) and around the black thing is the spring.

PS:lost manuel:mad:

If it still doesn't work after reassembling it according to the diagram let us know

You are missing the striker buffer. Big round o-ring looking disk. Search your room and do like Shunut said look at the manual.

No, he means something that looks like a big fat o-ring. It goes around the spring. It is called the striker buffer and goes behind the striker.

No, there is a thick rubber washer type thing, that is what he is referring to.

Its probably your striker buffer, but also make sure your trigger frame was on securely. It could be that the sear is not catching the hammer.

Whats a sear and a hammer?

The hammer is also called the striker. when you fire the gun it hits the valve pin which lets air in propelling the paintball. When you take the trigger frame off, the sear is the part that sticks up out of the frame. It catches the hammer and keeps it from firing until you pull the trigger.

Here's a great explanation that OtterSC has on his site.
