Well, Last sunday, i got my a-5 shinny and clean for paintball (With newly installed new tombstone and steel hose deally) And the FPS was all over the place to start with when i chrono'd. It worked alright, shot decent, air lasted fine, then when i thought i was getting low on my tank, it started to act up. It would shoot, but not cock back, i would cock it, same thing, then it would last a few more shots, if i left it. I re-filled my tank, slightly better, but still not good. Got a max 6 shots before it started to not cock back. Left it for a while, same result.


So... I clearly need help cause this don't make a lick of sense to me.

Your spring for the cocking handle may be in there wrong, also the spring at the back of the bolt may be in there wrong, im not quite sure about either one though, I would just check those first, hope it all works out for ya'

If the hammer is not coming back at all, then there's something wrong in your powertube, which would also explain the velocity issues. If you can't find anything wrong with your internals, then the powertube would be my guess.

Sounds like an issue in the internals somewhere. I would say if it is just not re-cocking make sure everything is in the right place and check the power tube for cracks. If that doesn't help then change out the valve. I have had issues with the valves going bad and causing issues like you are having.

If you play your own game of paintball using Spec ops as guidelines and not as "law of position", put this in your sig.
