Hey, I got an ion at the beginning of summer and took it to the shop about 5 times to be relubed and cleaned and all that stuff over time after playing.. But I just played reball yesterday at a place that didn't have a pro shop and new little about Ion's.. So, I took my gun out and put everything on.. So, I went to the chrono and when I shot it it started great at 238, 240, 239, 238, 237 (this place plays at 240... SUPER LOW!). But, then I started to shoot 260, then 280, 300, 306, 305, and then 301.. So, then I turned my reg down (CP reg) and then started to shoot it again.. 260, 198, 250, 235, 120, 270... Finally, I got everything right but then my batteries died in the gun.. So, I replaced those, and replaced the batteries in my hopper, since it was feeding right.. So, I wnet back down and shot it AGAIN, and it came out as 238, 239, 240, 245, 230, 238, 239, 234.. So it was pretty consistent for being and Ion.. So I headed out onto the field.. The game started and I ran into my bunker.. I popped out and started to shoot, but as I did, the balles were literally falling out of my barrel... Every once in a while it would actually shoot on across the field.. So, after 40 shots, I said screw it and just walked out of the game and asked the ref if he knew what was wrong.. He didn't know. So, I sat out a game and tried to figure out what was wrong.. I went back to the chrono and started to shoot and this time the balls actually started to shoot out. But, then when I walked on the field and started to play, the balls fell out of the barrel. I tired another game and the same thing happened...
Does anyone have any clue what it wrong with my gun...? Oh, and I had him change my dwell, but had no clue to what.. Since I didn't have my manual. The gun still didn't work.. ANYONE KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT?? The guys, then after that said it was my detents, appearently
I had blown them away.. But, is that the problem?
I was shooting a stock bolt, J&J Ceramic and the reballs were sized up fine.. Blackheart board too.
Oh, and some really stupid questions.. Sure, call me a newb..
What is a/the dwell...?
How do you change it..?
How do the detents work and where do they go?
If, the gun's problem is the detents, what ones should I get..
Please reply, I need help as soon as possible.
I live to own
