so i was showing my brother my PMR last night, and i set it on PSP mode and ripped about 10 shots outside, then it went "puff puff"... hmmm

so then i took it inside to take a look at it... it fired once more inside and didnt do anything, so i tured the reg screw all the way in, then back out 3 turns

when it comes out 3 turns, the solenoid leaks, so i turned it in 1 more turn, it fires like it should when you have air hooked up to it and only 2 turns on the screw

but when the marker is off, it dosent click like it used to when i would turn it on (without eyes)... when you pull the trigger, the solenoid dosent click...

... did i blow my solenoid?

you have to be very carefull with those noids because there is no low pressure reg after the high pressure reg.

you may have done so, but not sure, the only reason you would want to adjust the reg is to change velocity, and you want to have air hooked up and after each tweak fire it while checking the velocity.

I think the operating presure on a PMR is like 160 or 180 psi, around there. and If you push it over 200 psi you can blow the solenoid because the air goes straight from the HPR to the solenoid.

ok, so ive tinkered with it for the past few days...

air leaks out the barrel... but when i turn the marker on w/out air and w/out eyes... the solenoid clicks like it should... would it do that if i blew my solenoid?

do i just need to replace a few o-rings and then it be fixed?

Did you try changing the battery? As far as leaks go I would try changing out the O rings. You should have a spare set that came with it.

Change the batterie

and if it leak out the barrel you need a oring and the pressure is too high

pressure definetly isnt too high, the reg is set ALL the way down

i figured it was just an o-ring

but i know those solenoids are a bit touchey, so i wanted to make positive air wasnt running through the solenoid or something
