well my friend, DeltaX on here, has a dm5. i used it at a scenario almost a month ago because my guns were on the fritz, it was a great gun, worked great, and was fun to shoot. well lats weekend, we went to play again, my pm5 was having trouble so i used the dm5. i aired it up and the balls barely rolled out of the gun. the gun was operating but at a very low pressure. i turned the knob in the front off then on, fired and it worked. played with it for a game. i turned it off and when i turned it back on to fire it, it did it again, but after about 5 low shots, it fired normally. after a couple hundred rounds through it, it started to choke down and barely fire. it kept doing this. i replaced the battery thinking that was the problem, which it didn't help. my hopper was feeding just fine. i cleaned it out twice that day because of chops. now i want to buy it because he's selling it for $280. but i dont want to buy it unless its working. i want another gun like my pm5, just want it to work. does anybody have any ideas whats wrong with it?

Very common problem if over greased. Too much grease blocks the bolt ports.

Its also trait of not enough lube...

Pull the bolt out...if you see there isnt any grease then put some one if its just filled with wipe it al off then re-apply a lesser amou.

Peace,

Or wrong/ bad lube -- the original dye lube sucks and I've seen it cause this in an ion. Dow 33 I hope he's using.

Is the grease green? Is it Dye lube? Try SL33K instead.

Overgreasing just restricts the ports and acts irregular. Just check it out and clean it out including the ports then reapply good grease.

Edit: I can maybe suggest other things but you got a 75% chance this is the problem. Other things like blockage in reg (or rebuild needed), ASA restriction, selenoid sticking. etc.

im using something that is in a red flip top lid. i use it on my pm5 because thats what came with the parts kit and i thought it was safe to use on it since they resemble each other in some way or another

They both use the fuse bolt design. They also both use the same grease. I don't recognize the type you're using. Is there a name or anything on it? Hopefully not Dow 55.

Maybe post a pic of the grease tube.
