Anyone know about paintball guns?

Ive been having a problem with my paintball gun not re-cocking. Its a semi auto and will not reload itself. All the O-rings have been replaced, and every part is where it should be, according to the diagrams. The C02 tank is full, I just cant figure this out. The gun is a Brass Eagle Avenger 2

Oddly enough when the bolt was in upside down, it would auto reload.

Of course everyone loves a hard worker, they do all the work!

OK, that was twice in 6 months, red means STOP

hmm, I'm afraid I dont know too much about the brass eagle line, except that they are rather low on the totem pole.

What type of velocity adjuster does that guy use? Does it adjust spring tension on the hammer? Or does it restrict air-flow to the breech?

*cough*get a Tippmann

How are the springs? Sometimes they'll compress and not go all the way back when fired.

id check the springs, it seems like that's the problem. maybe something foreign is in there preventing it from cocking back?

does the hammer have an o-ring? If yes, does it have a fresh o-ring? When I say fresh, I mean new. On my old .68 carbine I had a hammer o-ring that pasted visual with flying colors, but it was old enough, and had shrunk. It wasnt creating enough of a seal, and the blow-back gasses were escaping around it instead of cocking the hammer. Also check your valve, make sure it isnt clogged at all, and well lubed.

All the o-rings are brand new. When it was upside down it would re-cock but the ball would just fall out of the barrel because the one half-hole was facing up ad not letting the C02 get to the bolt. Id love to get a new gun but I dont have the money for it. The velocity works with a bolt that pushes against the spring but adjusting that made no diffference. The gun is just over a year old, would the springs be worn out already? I dont use it too much, maybe twice a month. I lubed the whole thing when I replaced the O-rings and the gas line.

ok, new o-rings... check.

and you tried removing tension from the drive spring, and no difference? ok

are there any other differences in the bolt, from top to bottom, other than the air passage? Have you tried the gun both with and without paintballs?

Only difference I can see in the bolt from top to bottom is the one hole for the gas. With or without paintballs makes no difference.

nice cocker I have a mini-cocker body lying around here I've been wanting to build, maybe with an mq valve, and an electro frame. I'll definetly be going the eclipse route with it (assuming I ever get around to it).


I just got my ego today, and I really like the job Eclipse did with it, I assume the whole trigger and electronics react and feel similiarly to their cockers (the open vs closed bolt operation aside).

My babies:

Tippmann SL-68II, around 10 years old. 16" All-American

My Tippy 98 Custom. lots done to it (polished internals, drop forward, couple of barrels, etc.) Going to go R/T soon

I'm looking to get a new one to play NCPA 'ball. I'm thinking about an E-grip A-5 or an Ion (Our paintball club can get any Tippmann for cost, which is why I'm considering the A-5).

Anyway. . . . . . .[/hijack]

Autococker all the way for me. I've never shot a gun I liked more, even ones costing twice what it cost to build my 'cocker. I've got an Omen for backup, and I've also got an Armotech Zeus that I play with every now and then.

cougar_guy04: nice sl-68II! I have a .68 special in the closet, had an 18" boomstick turned down to fit it, neat gun, just doesnt see much use anymore.


SloMo: I've never had a cocker, but the blazer is more or less the same deal, most precise and consistent gun I've ever shot, and I got it on the cheap.

second... I took the EGO out for the first time today, and holy cow, this thing is great!! We all know its the player that makes the difference, but it having good tools certainly doesnt hurt!!!

My friend has an EGO, that thing rips & its really light weight...
It just feels right shooting it
He also has a G7, and wow, that thing blows the ego out of the water.

The Tippmans are the most durable guns....
I heard a story that someone ran the gun over with a truck.
(It was an A5)
The hopper broke on the side, but the gun worked fine
I have a 98 Custom w/ and RT and about $400 in other stuff,
and I dropped it in the mud - picked it up and it still worked.

No luck yet. I may have to get one of those "tune-up" kits and change the springs.

Yeh, the SL's are the same way. Solid aluminum body. If ya run out of ammo, it can also double as a club (i think this goes for all Tippmanns).

Tippmanns are pretty much invincible. I used to play with a Model 98 and it's been full of sand, mud, paint, little rocks, whatever happens to get jammed in it while playing woodsball and scenarios. Once I ran it over with my car to see if it would survive, and it just picked up a couple scratches. No problems at all. They are as solid a gun as I've ever seen. Every other gun in its price range feels like a cheap plastic toy compared to it. Plus, they're made the good ol' USA unlike all the other guns in its price range.

Sonofa*****, I figured Id tear the gun down one more time before I spent the money on a tune up kit (damn expensive here) and found a ****ing pinhole in the body just above where the gas line screws in. This has gotta be some of the cheapest metal I have ever seen, looks like it hit a small stone last time I was playing and it punched right through.

Ill try to patch it up and hope for the best, Im gonna try and pick up a better gun next year. The hell with brass eagle. Think Im gonna check out the other makes when I head to the States next spring, there isnt a lot of selection around here, and the places that do carry the better guns want way too much for them.

Pretty much any place we can find that isnt too close to anyone. Old gravel pits, woods etc.
