Some of my experience from this past weekend

I finally got the chance to see a fusion acting up. My teammates new fusion had some problems this weekend. The first problem was the marker had reg creep. The next problem while someone else helped him chrono the regulator got turned above 400 psi and blew the solenoid and started leaking air from the solenoid into the bottom tube constantly. Here are the 2 fixes:

For the Reg Creep, the black oring on the velocity adjustment screw was partially ripped, replaced this with an oring from the parts kit, aired it up and the pressure held like a champ.

For the solenoid, I did replace it with the one in my kit, but I contacted DP to ask about the problem with it. They suggested replacing what I am guessing as the solenoid plunger (top left in a zip lock bag in the parts kit). I did this and it fixed the problem with my solenoid.

Just passing this information along for anyone that can use it.

No I mean actual reg creep, I didnt have a leak at all. If you let the marker sit at 250 psi it would slowly make its way up to 350 psi. I am not quiet sure how the oring was causing this, only that replacing it fixed it.

I had some problems today as well... Does anyone know what would cause the bolt to not return all the way, causing the gun not to fire unless you pull the bolt back the extra inch?
EDIT: sorry for thread jack

Since the fusion is spring returned, instead of air returned, it sounds like a spring problem.

Check for paint shells on the bolt or in the body that could cause the bolt to hang on them. Also remove the ram and ram cap and air the marker up and see if you hear air leaking on the lower tube. If so could be the same problem as my solenoid.

Is the bolt connected to the ram properly?

Yes, I also checked the lpr, listened for leaks, and cleaned and lubed the entire gun but i'm still having the same problem.

Make sure there's not a nickle stuck in there anywhere....that's what WGP told me at one point with my lemon cocker.LOL.

hmm....you could possibly have something slightly outta place (wouldn't know yet, mine's on backorder) but that happened with a few of my friends' markers, and all they had to do was break it down and start over putting things back together.

Can you put a spring in backwards?
