Default the hell was that?!?!?!?!?!?

hey guys, weirdest thing happen to me few days ago... i was playing with my cousin's imagine04 and after few shots and walks... the gun was shotting like a machinegun at first i thought "contact point" got stuck but when i looked at the gun, the bolt was moving in slow motion and yet it sounded like it was firing. there was no paintball in the gun by the way... thank god.... i just turned it off and turn it back on and it was doing the same thing. i just told my cousin to put more lub on his bolt but what cause that problem??? let me know, thanks. here is his setup list.
=====
imagine04
ACS Aluminum Bolt
co2 tank (which it wasn't empty)
* he removed his expansion chamber and connected his co2 tank

So it's jackhammering? Sounds like his tank is just low, get a fresh fill and try it.

Running the co2 tank without the expansion chamber is really not that great of an idea. It will work but it will work much better with the expansion chamber on it. CO2 in the tank is in liquid form and needs time to expand, hence the use of an expansion chamber. Other than that you might also want to take the gun apart and clean everything, check all the o-rings and relube everything.

I wasn't saying it wouldn't work, I was just saying that its not the best way to run co2. CO2 works much better if it has more time to expand.

the tank was just low, i told him not to use his co2 without his expansion chamber. i also told him to check the o rings and other parts. he took out his expansion chamber to install regulator but it was a wrong model. when he returned his regulator he forgot where he put his expansion chamber and his nitro tank is at PMI for refill i guess... thanks for the help guys

Not to argue the point but even a gas through grip allows more time for the co2 to expand, so how would that not make a difference?
