studdering bolt

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?

The same argument you make could apply to cars, paintball guns, prostitutes, and firearms.

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.

ASA is the air source adapter (where you screw your tank into your gun).
