Invert Mini Rubber Tip

Hi everyone I am having a problem with my Invert Mini. The rubber tip on the bolt doesnt stay on when i put the bolt assembly back into the gun. When I try to fire it the rubber tip gets pushed off causing the gun to not shoot. If anyone knows how to fix this problem please send me a message. Thanks

Make sure you have put the spring back on the bolt correctly. And that none of the coils of the spring have become bend and are snagging the rubber tip. That is most likely the cause. The spring is slightly smaller on one end. the smaller side should snap onto the bolt.

Have you been using that rubber tip for a while now?

It is a general wear part just like any o-ring. Do what Biggs said and make sure that your spring clicks when you put it down on the bolt. If that still does not fix the problem, chances are that you just need to put a new tip on it.

First things first, put a fresh new battery in it. Also what are your settings at?

Take your pressure to about 190 and then put your dwell at around 25 blinks with your back cap at 3/4 of a turn out. Sometimes if you take your back cap out too far you can not get the required velocity; I'm not sure if anyone has explained why but I know that some of the most qualified mini people in this forum have given that explanation so I am going to listen to that.

Well the dwell is the only thing that is going to require changing on the board. Here is the link to the Mini manual, it will tell you how to change the dwell setting on your board. Chances are that it is going to be sideways though; All that you need to do is right click on the page and then hit "Rotate Clockwise" and that will get it the right way.

Let me know if you still can not get it.

That's odd; Try taking out your poppet and cleaning it thoroughly. Also, put in a fresh name brand battery.


I would not suggest taking it off, you're going to make it a lot harder to shoot brittle paint and it's going to give you a higher chance of chopping paint.
