My cousin has a Marauder that if I can fix can have. I need it for a loaner. The problem it has is that I'll fully attach a CO2 to the gun and cock the firing pin. I can shoot it and it will shoot a paintball but then it won't recock. I opened the gun up and looked inside. It's missing the Spring Guide (Part #11) and the Spacer (Part #12). I can still order a Spring Guide from the JT website but everywhere I look the Spacer's are all sold out. I was hoping that someone with a Marauder could get the dimensions of the Spacer and send them to me so I can make my own. I have plenty of tools so that's not a problem. Also was wondering that if I get these parts, would it fix the recocking problem?

I doubt you even need the spacer, the spring guide will be a little more important but rather than having the spacer just crank your velocity adjustment in a little more and it should do the same thing as having the spacer. even if you want to make one, they dont need to be super accurate, just find some washers that will fit over the spring guide but in the body once you get that and you should be fine. the spacers job is just to take up some space, nothing critical

however i really doubt those will solve the issue. most old blowbacks like this need a new spring at some point. basically the spring itself looses tension and is not able to push the hammer forward hard enough into the valve, this results in low velocities and the inability to re-cock. The other thing to replace is the hammer o-ring typically these are a size 15 but once they ware out they will not seal properly, it will look fine on the outside but you cant tell if it is good or not by looking at it. o-rings are cheap, replace it and then also oil the marker with paintball specific oil (some other oils can damage or eat o-rings or other parts)

typically markers like this one just need a little TLC to get back in working order
