are any of ur friends jokesters/asshats? The damn thing should be in there somewhere, check the chamber, shine a light down if need be, only other thing i can think of is it got into the top chamber w/ the bolt and was kicked out during firing.

they can be asshats, but none of which would think of taking the o-ring out, ill look for it in the gun, but it feels like it dryfires clean and theres nothing in there fire unsmooth so it must have gotten shot out

wel when you shine a light down it look for srcatches or nicks...it could be that you got a scratch and it's shredding up your o-ring

If you havent, just get more of the red O-rings and make sure that you oil it.

stip your gun down completely....take the valve out. wash the body out with soap and water. then look inside for scratches. and of course, oil everything properly before you put it back together.

other things....are you using oil specifically designed for your paintball gun? (paintball gun oil, gold cup, or what not) oil that is not for a paintball gun will usually break down the o rings.....

no, not normally. some fluid/oils will break it down rather quickly. but it would probably break, roll up or whatever, and get shot out.....of course, its just speculation, it never happened to me.

Maybe it froze off and you shot it out while you were playing.

liquid co2 is quite cold when it converts to a gas. ever notice how a little cloud comes out of the end of the barrel when you fire a lot or that your gun gets cold when you fire a lot?

if u buy a e-frame u should get a new striker w/ it.

u may be able to get the bolt to work. U'd have to cut off the top part of the cap though. Allowing the rod to come through.
