Help with Paintball Marker. Experienced user advice needed.
« on: January 19, 2021, 06:21:12 PM »
Hi All,
         I bought a Paint Ball marker for a project, 1/6 scale Tank installation.  The customer is insisting on .50 Cal.  I found a conversion kit and purchased a 2005 Paint ball Marker. Electronic.  This is the perfect for this application.  So I rebuilt the Low Pressure Regulator and adjusted it per the owners manual.  All I can get is a .50 rubber ball stuck in the barrel.  It moves but doesn't fly.  I have a HPA tank with the regulator set to 400 PSI feeding it.

The Marker is an ETEK GEO 2005 and I have the manual.

Thanks for any advise.  Double thanks for useful advice.     If I have posted in the wrong place please move this posting and let me know where it went.

Thanks!
Michael

O.K.  Problem Solved.  Found the Video for the marker (ETEK  GEO) I was working on.  The main piston was covered in dried up Grease.  Clean and fresh oil lube and she cooks with gas now!!! 

Thanks All.

He is going to be impressed!!

Thanks!
