Whats wrong with my Epiphany


I bought this for my ole lady.. changed the stock reg to CP cause i had a spare.. it worked fine.. gun shot very nicely the first time we shot it.. but a little bolt stick.. (Only shot like 100 balls) Jesse Stephens then dry fired the piss out of it... for fun of course... idk why.. (No lube so I didn't lude the bolt that night) Next day, my ole lady wanted to pract.. turned gun on, aired it up... now it doesn't shoot... I took it apart, lubed the bolt, made sure air was coming through the reg, and made sure all the hoses to and from the noid were clear of obstructions... everything checked out fine.. gun still clicks when trigger is pulled.. (Solonoid clicking) it just doesn't cycle the air i guess.. air is getting to the bolt because i can't pull it forward... so anyone who knows what is wrong.. please fill me in.. Cause this is ridiculouse..

I would try asking in the Ion forum, the epiphany forum is pretty much dead.

Also....try making sure the hose running from the noid to the breech isnt cramped or anything. That's kindof a weird problem though. Maybe low battery (99% of ion/epiphany problems are either battery or lube related).

Sounds like a dead battery. Start there. Even when the batt is dead the board will still turn on and the nous will click but it won't work.

check the solenoid armature. after a while, the little rubber seal down there sorta tears apart from contact with the plastic solenoid case. also heat deteriorates that rubber FAST. if its torn, it will still click but wont move enough for to let the gun work.

ive had that problem always with all the ions and my epiph. my solution was to get a MAC33 solenoid, costs less than 30 on ebay, and youd be needing some hoses also, because the setup changes. you hae to use the Lucky Ultimate Banjo.

pump_shooty: why is it that 90% of the people with "contract killer" grips look like they could be b*tch slapped by a girl scout?"

^^^what they said, check the battery first. Whenever you're epi acts up 1st change the battery, if that doesn't do it lube it up. If that doesn't do it then hopefully we can help

BTW the EPI forum isn't *quite* dead. I check it nearly every day.
