Help?

Dusted the g3 off to play with the other day, and the bolt wouldnt engage and shoot. I replaced the battery (oled board confirms freshness), I lubed the bolt. I feel the air behind the bolt when i would push slightly through the feed neck. It just wouldnt fire. Any suggestions?

Oled does not confirm freshness as that gauge is a rough estimate based on the battery's voltage output. Which is not a direct indicator of battery life. Try a brand new one from the store

Battery life is correlated with voltage/current output.

Is the solenoid clicking? Also considering replacing the bolt/breech orings, and service the regulator.

Have you tried servicing the reg? I had a G3 that did that one time, after it had been sitting for a while, and when I serviced the reg, it worked fine.

Maybe the reg isn't getting enough air to the bolt to cycle it.

you can still have proper voltage and not have proper current output. battery indicator measures voltage for it's gauge. which isnt 100% accurate 100% of the time
