SuperNova question

Why hello there

Recently discovered all my paintball equipment. Including the supernova that I never quite got working.

Using some of the sites and threads on here, I have gotten it to stop leaking.

However, I noticed something ... different, I guess. I never actually used this gun before, so I don't know what to expect.

When I gas it up, the copper-colored barrel moves towards the back of the gun, effectively preventing a paintball from going in to the breach. When I pull the trigger, the barrel moves forward and air is discharged. I've just been dry firing (currently 31 degrees ... not so fun for the paintballing)

So .... is this normal? Is this the way its supposed to work?

What happens if a paintball gets stuck halfway when the barrel slides back to the rear of the gun? Paintball soup? (sort of like automags had before Level X)

I just joined this forum to try and sell my Supernova. The barrel is supposed to move, its referred to as an articulating barrel. I haven't had many instances of chopped balls when I played but should it happen, the barrel can be removed to clean out the shell. The chamber needs to be cleared and with the trigger still depressed, the barrel can twist off. I believe you have to keep the trigger down while the barrel is off or else it will piss gas out.

Yep. Thanks. I got mine working. Only issue is the safety doesn't work. But I really don't care at this point. Can't wait for it to get a little warmer so I can try it out.
