Ok so i hooked up some CO2 to my ego 08 to test and see if it shoots only air(i know compressed air is optimal but i'm not getting my tank till later this week). The bolt will click and the gun will fire but you cant feel any air comming out the barrel and the bolt wont cock back into the ready position so its just blocking where the paintballs would feed into. So it cocks half the distance its suppose to. I relubed the bolt and the silver piece on the bolt is all the way down. Anyone know what the problem could be?

found your problem^^^

sounds like your LPR is too low, but chances are your HPA tank is going to have a different output pressure so i wouldnt bother working on it untill your HPA tank is there and filled

i'm not using the cos to play. I was testing if it shot. I fixed it. The bolt wasnt sitting in the right place.

Doesn't matter, you can still greatly damage the gun.

The electronic solenoid is very sensitive to pressure
Any pressure spikes can blow it, and you'll be down for $125 for a new solenoid
