Bolt Sticking Forward on Air-up

hey kids, havent been on here in a while.

recently i have been having problems with my firebolt sticking forward when i air up my epiphany. air also (naturally, with the bolt stuck forward) leaks out the barrel. i have fresh batteries, have lubed it, and upped the dwell. about to go reballing tonight. any suggestions? could it be a bad o-ring up front? ive checked everything on the bolt, and all seems well, but it could very well be the oring in the breech.

have any of you guys had these symptoms? if so, how did you fix it?

thanks a bunch, and if you are going to tell me to get a new gun, i know already, ive been lurking on ebay. but i like my epiphany, and have no money.

Mine use to do that, most of the time the tech at the field had to fix it for me but i think it might have been a bad QEV oring or something.

mine has done that a few times also, take your soft barrel squege and push it back before you air up. I think it happens when you shut the asa off and fire the marker a few times,to bleed off presure.
