Unhappy Small Spare Parts

Hi, new member;

Wondering where I can find small spare parts for my Pirhana eforce Ext (Red). The gun makes that Burrraaapp sound as described in the FAQ and I found the problem. There's a golden metal ring on the end of the spring but the part that's supposed to stop it from going further and re-cock is missing. I think it broke off while I was trying to change springs, and I've tried to use a small rubber O-ring to stop it from doing that. It didn't work, so I figured I might as well get a new part. I don't know where to find them (Google doesn't come up with anything) and I hope to find answers here, and also hope that someone from the PMI manufacturers staff replies with information. Otherwise I'm gonna have to buy a whole new gun.

Cheers for any help,

Mister Tooh

Are you trying to describe the yellowish colored C-clip that holds the spring on the flush cocking rod?

Yes, Indeed.

What happens is every time I fire it shoots rapid, then it doesn't auto-re-cock. I have to pull it again to fire, and it does it over and over again. When opened and checked, the spring has nothing to bounce against and force the gun to auto-cock.

That C-clip coming loose CAN be a pain to maintain, but I doubt that its the cause of your gun not recocking.
That spring just helps the cocking rod to retract back into the gun body.

If you need a C-clip replacement, contact Ross at http://www.bosspaintballproducts.com , he may have the part youre looking for.

The first thing you want to check, concerning the gun not recocking, is the guns internal lubrication.
The oil used should be a synthetic oil, or grease, namely Dow 33.
The hammer O-ring is the most important item to be lubed.
Anything other than synthetic oil will cause the O-rings to swell, causing major drag.

Second...what is the guns operating pressure according to the gauge?
It should read somewhere between 350-500 psi for starters.
Pressures too low, or too high, can cause recocking problems.

Check these 2 areas, and see if one of them may be the cause for your problem.

Yep it's definately the c-clip. I saw a picture of it on the link you gave me. I've already checked the points you suggested and now I know it's really the c-clip.

cheers for the help
