What's wrong with it exactly? How did it break? Did you fix it? Is that why it barely shoots?

ok for 1 thing the halo keeps jamming, but thats not the whole reason because it doesnt work with the hopper off. when i shoot it, it makes a wierd sound and the bolt does not re-cock itself. it keeps doing it too, yes I had a lot of air and the velocity was up at around the regular speed.

it doesnt work ith the hopper off because the eyes will not let teh gun cycle if there's not a ball in teh breach. as for teh recocking, try rasing teh pressure out put on teh reg to get some more airflow

so ur halo is jamming-this has nothing to do w/ the gun. and everyone knows that halos won't feed when they are off. So i don't see these as problems.

For ur weird sound and no recock......if it's a metal bolt, polish it. Also oil ur o-rings.

ok, nvm on that then, idk y i thought the new kingman guns had eyes but ok, anyway


what do u mean it doesnt work with the hopper off? the halo jamming sounds liek a problem with teh halos eyes or board, and check to make sure the frame is screwed in tightly, or teh sear and hammer might not be catching very well

I'm going out on a limb here, but shoot the gun without the halo on, or with another hopper.

Is the ACS bolt binding on something that could cause it to collapse enough to not recock?

It could be swolen. If you put it in the gun, without the hammer attached to it, and push it like it would move during a shot can you feel it bind up at all?

That could be a problem. A little harder to push shouldn't do much, but if it was stiff enough then it would go into its 'ACS action'.

Derlin shouldn't scratch the aluminum at all.

Take the gun apart, clean, and re-oil everything. Look for random metal shavings or anything else that doesn't belong.

Not a good idea for your O-rings, or really anything else.

Also don't oil the bolt. Oil and derlin don't get along with each other.

Paintball oil first, gun oil or air tool oil second, I hear ATF fluid will work if you're in a bind.

It'll be better than WD-40 at least. I'm betting the BB gun oil is most likely just gun oil.

I'd go for it, then wipe everything down and redo it when you get some better stuff.
