Hi guys im having a problem with my ion xe... i have no clue what to do. I believe there is something wrong with the internals of the gun. Every time i pull the trigger the gun is making a low noise sound quite irregular to the normal noise it makes when its shooting. I feel air being released through the trigger when i shoot but only when i shoot. I can tell that the bolt is moving forwards and back but not quite hard or fast enough to even push the paint ball through the barrel. But every now and then it does work and shoot a ball but that doesn't happen very often. I have an important game soon and i need your help.:confused:

replace it anyway and see what happens, and if you lubed it already then its time to rebuild the bolt assembly

edit: everything needs to be lubed, ions go though lube fairly quickly, get your hands on some dow 33 and give the bolt assembly a work over, on the ion you should be doing that every other case or so

Even if you don't think you need to put a fresh battery in you should do it anyway. Even if it doesn't solve your problem it's one more thing you can cross off the list of possibilities and be 100% sure about.

Honestly, I tell people to "change the battery and try again, if that doesn't work change the battery again" for a total of 2 battery swaps.

I haz virtue board, it tells you if you have low battery.
I understand that but the voltage readers are easily fooled, I confused a board of mine into thinking it had 27 volts on one occasion and 2.3v on another.
Just do it.

EDIT:
Oh, and you can swear just make sure you spell your naughty words correctly.

If your battery and lube is all correct and done, than your dwell might be set too low

Try bumping it up a few blinks along with a fresh battery and lube
