Ok, so I bought my A5 about a year ago and had an accident where I couldnt not do any physical activity for nearly a half a year. Only a half year later (last Saturday) I finally went paintballing again.
So, my gun was basically laying around brand new for a year.

I went to S.C Village in Corona, CA and started shooting and everything was fine and then after a couple of fields I started noticing that I was shooting blanks. I would shake it and then it would shoot one more shot.
After the round ended, I took off the hopper. I pressed the switch where it makes the cyclone spin. I was amazed that when I pressed it, it took about 3 seconds just to make one click. (it should click right when you press it).
Basically it was sluggish as hell. My friend got a screwdriver (hes an experienced paintball players and built his own gun before) and he unscrewed the cyclone feeder. He wondered if there wasnt enough oil, so he oiled up wherever it had to be oiled, yet it was still the same.

Do you guys know what the problem might be? Or, do you need me to take a video to give you a better picture of whats going on?

Thanks a lot thumup:

I think there were some parts updates for the Cyclone- the ratchet plate(?), but don't quote me on that. I haven't got one myself or I'd be more helpful.

If you had plenty of air and all the seals had enough oil it should have cycled.

Someone with a A5 should come by here, or if not there is the A5 owners group website, Tippmann A5 Operator Group a paintball forum for the Tippmann A-5 Marker Owner.

Either way I hope it works out and you let us know what it needed. Good luck :tup

i actually tested it later this night and it actually works perfectly fine now.
Probably when he oiled it up and everything, it had to take time to settle everything in place.
2 days and its working ok. Thanks for the help anyways.
