lv 10 bolt stick or something?
Hey guys, I've got micromag and just installed a lv10 last weekend. It worked well last week, using 1.5 carrier, short spring, 2 shims. No chops all day and I am a unstoppable shortstroker. Well I oiled the o-rings the night before playing this week and in the middle of two games my gun stopped firing. The first time I pulled the trigger a couple times, and it fired again. So after the game I oiled the carrier o-ring and went to play. Again it stopped firing, the trigger rod pushes the trigger out but it won't fire when I pull it. I didn't get to check if I could reset the bolt by pushing the bolt with my finger cuz I had already removed the air source. Am I experiencing bolt stick? or something else?
Bolt piston broke from bolt. Help!
I was playing paintball this weekend. I am shooting an automag with a Xvalve with a level 10 bolt. After playing a couple of games I went and shot my gun at the chrono table. All of sudden the gun started to leak air down the barrel just a little. I pulled the trigger a couple of times and then all of a sudden air was gushing out of the barrel. I turned off the gas and took apart the gun. When I slid the bolt off the power tube, I look down the inside of the bolt and the Piston Pin that was in the bolt was missing. I was wondering what the heck was going on. Then I looked down the power tube and there was that Piston Pin. It came apart from the inside of the bolt. I never had anything wrong with my gun. My gun shot like a dream. I am using the carrer 1.5 with 2 shims. I wonder if it was a defective bolt. This bolt worked fine up until now. I bought this bolt from AGD about a year ago. I want to send the bolt back to have them check it out and get it replaced with a new one. From what I was reading in the forums, this happens very,very,very rarely. Any Thoughts .. Please Help !!!!
Thanks Darick M. :cry:
New RT Custom ULE problem
I am brand new with a Mag and have alot to learn. Please help if you can. This may not be a lvl 10 problem. I have just recieved my new RT ULE, x-valve, lvl 10, RPG Chimera 90* frame, Splinter rail, WGP Torpedo drop w/on-off. I have install all shims in the on/off. It will shoot 5 or 6 times, (dry, no barrel), and quit. If I remove the tank and release the pressure, then reinstall, it will shoot another 5 or 6 and stop again. I hope this is a simple fix. It has been sent back once already to be dialed in and it still isn't right. :(
:dance: UPDATE.....It seems to be fixed!!! :bounce: A quarter turn on the feild strip bolt was all it took. The aluminum rails have to be tightened down just right. :cheers:
