i just fired my tippmann 98c today i found that after firing about 25 balls, all of a sudden my gun would not shoot. i quickly found that the bolt/hammer needed to be manualy pulled back a little more, and then it started working again. has this happened to anyone else? and is there anyway to fix/stop this?

It could be a couple of things. Drop some oil into your asa and (with the barrel off) dry fire 10-20 times. Sometimes the orings just need some oil so, if you're comfortable with it, disassemble the gun and use 1 or 2 drops of oil on all the orings you see. If you can see any obvious damage to any of the orings, I suggest replacing them and oiling them right away.

But sometimes misfires just happen. Not much you can do. That's what you get with the inconcistency of CO2.
