Impulse sputtering then dieing out???

I just got a new all stock Smart Parts Impulse and after the first day of use i gassed it up and when i pulled the trigger the light lit up but nothin happened. At first it worked but spputtered a little between shots. and after about 300 shots it worsened and now doesnt shoot at all. i have the PSI set at 160 and dwell at 1 o'clock and am runnin co2 with anti siphon.

The battery Is FINE. I did give it more gas but nothing. Also forgot to mention that it was half cocking when this ***** was happening.

Half cocking? You mean the bolt was only going half way foreward? Dwell settings are unique to every gun, but if mine was set at 1 oclock at 160 psi, the gun would probably do the same thing, I have my dwell at closer to 10 or 11, with about 170ish psi. Try making the dwell longer, and turning the pressure up to 170. Raising your pressure but shortening the dwell seems to solve little problems with most of the imps I've seen doing weird stuff. If the bolt was going all the way foreward and sticking there for a split second letting a large fwoosh of air out, the dwell is set too long. If you fired 300 shots with a really really long dwell, you might've emptied your tank.

Hmm, check your solenoid connection, it almost sounds like it was poorly connected then it just disconnected, which would be why it isnt firing anymore, but the light still lights up, but readjust your dwell, sounds like it set to short.
