well today i received a skirmish SI from a guy here on the forum. i traded my autococker for it. when i got it, i assembled it and aired it up, air went straight down the barrel. so i took it apart, replaced the o-rings in it, lubed it up, oil in the asa, aired it up and it held. so i cocked and air cam flying out the barrel and hopper adapter. but when i pulled the cocking arm out, it stopped and held the air. i squeezed the trigger and it fired. cocked it again, same thing. but when i would squeeze the trigger, the air power going down the barrel was not as powerful as when i would squeeze the trigger. i have a video showing it. what i did was dry fire into a curtain to show you. but after messing around with it for a while, sometimes it would not leak down the barrel when i would cock it. then others, it would. so i have no idea whats going on here. i could only find 1 o-ring and that was in the valve. can somebody help me out? im playing tomorrow and would like to get this working just in case my pm5 malfunctions or im almost out of paint.

Sounds like it could be a weak valve spring or not enough input pressure, or a hammer spring being too strong. If it leaks when you cock it, the valve is giving in and opening up instead of the hammer and bolt connecting via sear.

Possible, but unlikely. A cupseal problem usually results in a constant slow leak.

post the vid on youtube, too

Not to spam but HUH? I don't get it...

Fox urine nothing! I would rent an elephant from the local circus and give it a massive dose of ex-lax. I would then proceed to "cork it" with an attached string so when the kids show up KABLOOEE!!!!!! See if their parents can sue an elephant for defacating! -ZZaque

Spyder springs are about the right width and just need to be cut

It's a Nelson valve, I would recommend springs from a Phantom before using springs from a stacked-tube blowback like a Spyder.
The Skirmish was the cheapest of the Line SI markers, used as rentals by a lot of fields.

Yeah, springs from another nelson or a post 99 (or is it 98?) autococker are nelson springs, but finding spyder springs is the most common when you go to a field or proshop...
