So I got my G3, and played with it the first time on sunday, and it shot fine+great. So I get it home, having a previously filled tank before I left, and try to shoot. Its not doing anything. I twist the reg out both ways, I can hear the solenoid clicking, and at some points it will shoot air but not enough to cycle the bolt. I need to get it working by this sunday, please help me out guys.
You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it...

You could have overpressurized your reg... i did it several times with my g3. Take the reg apart, very carefully, noting where everything goes, and replace the orings. Thats my best bet. Then, before you air it up again, make sure the reg is backed out (forget which way, but so that the pressure will be really low), and slowly turn it up over a chrono. Remember, unlike other markers, 1/4 turn of the reg is a ton.

You might wanna replace your battery first, its easier and is a likely culprit as well.

Turning the screw so that it goes in will turn down the pressure, backing it out will turn up the pressure. You can only really back it out one way :laugh:

Anyways, I'd check the o-rings on your bolt, lube the noid (if you need help on that check out pbnation, there should be a guide.)/check the noid's o-rings.

Is there a locking screw on the reg swivel like on thresholds? I had a similar problem with a threshold that I had where I tightened that screw too much, and it cut off most of the air flow. If there is one, try loosening it.

try lubing the o-rings on the bolt and there's one internal one in the gun that you need to lube within the bolt area, if this doesn't help try replacing the #6 oring on your bolt. i wouldnt recommend taking apart the noid just yet wait and see if these solve the other problems
