Get the ST kit, it slows the bolt cycle down and eliminates a lot of the engine noise. Mine had a "whang" sound.....though when I had a GA air tank, it pinged really loud as well.

My GA tank pings no matter what marker I use it on......I'd have to say it's your tank. Especially if it's a Guerrilla Air.

Put a Ninja reg on the GA tank, fixes the ping immediately.

Bottle ping is all luck. Some bottles will ping for awhile then go away, some don't. My GA pinged everytime I used it, but the other team mates with GA had no problems at all.

He has a PE tank, so he is most likely hearing the bolt......if it is loud and noticeable, I would maybe replace your bumper oring......the ping may be an early indicator that the bolt in making contact with the prop shaft on the back stroke.......

GST kit should eliminate it though. Get one stat, you will NOT regret it.....

Last time when my bumber oring came off It didn't make the obvious ping sound... But no harm checking it.

The bottle ping is very clear and sharp metalic sound. Sort of like a coin being drop on the metal bottle.

Already been mentioned, but if the noise doesn't trace to the bottle, then it is *definitely* worth checking the bumper o-rings. If they have worn to the point that they are ineffective, or shredded off entirely, shooting the marker too much could damage the Prop Shaft or the bolt. Metal to metal contact is never going to be good.
