Ok, i was playing woodsball with my friends today. I got my tank freshly refilled and i was ready to play. When i got everything put together, i tried everything to make sure it worked. it didnt. i screwed my tank in, fired a few shots, and all i got was the pressure gauge at 200psi and what sounded like a tiny bit of air going through my gun. after attempting to fire my gun for about a minute i finally got a "BANG". after that, i got the same thing. i put my tank on my friends tippmann and it worked perfectly fine. so, can anyone help me with my problem? at the moment i hate smart parts. everything is at its factory setting. the gun has been working fine up until this day. any helps or tips would be great. thank you

im using HPA dont worry. i think you might be right about the bolt sticking though. i havent lubed it yet. does it really make that much of a difference?

It can, relube, clean, maintain, all that good stuff.

Since the Ion is a fully electropneumatic marker, it will need a lot more maintenance than some blowback style gun. I clean/lube/maintain my EOS after every day of play, every chop/breech break, and after every performance upgrade

He said he already changed it. 4 months is still new to the sport, I played for over a year before I jumped to my first electro-pneumatic gun.

Rebuild the O-rings in your bolt kit.
