Geo 2.1 ? (o-rings/hold?) Help please...
Hi everyone. I don't post much in here but ever time I have everyone has helped me out greatly. I have been having two issues with my 2.1...
I replaced all of the O-rings in my gun and have been having some bolt stick issues. I purchased the official Planet Eclipse O-Ring kit and replaced every O-ring EXACTLY with the ones on the manual. When I went to chrono I noticed there was alot of FSDO at stock dwell. I upped the dwell to 14.5 and the gun cycled and shot smoothly with no first shot drop off. After a few cases the gun was still having FSDO at any dwell lower than 14.5. I realize this is probably being caused by sticktion in one of the O-Rings, but does anyone have any idea which one? I realize that even the same size O-rings have variances even with the same size so maybe I could swap it out with a different one within in the same size. I don't really have any problems running it at 14.5 but it isn't doing that well in the efficiency department. Does anyone have a video hand fitting guide or a thread where they discuss O-ring sizing? (I have seen several videos on other markers where they go through hand fitting O-rings for spool valve guns). Will this gun possibly break in more and run at least stock dwell or should I change something?
p.s. I am using planet eclipse lube just like I was before the O-ring change and I have watched the demo videos by PE about greasing your maker so I really don't think its a lubrication issue.
Moving on to #2
I was playing in a local tourney yesterday and my gun stopped shooting. I looked at the display it said HOLD just like it would if you were holding down the middle button to power the gun on. Nothing would get the gun to reset, holding down the middle, tapping the middle, touching all the buttons. The only way I got it to reset was to pull the battery out. I was using a brand new energizer industrial since it was a tournament. Does this sound like a battery issue, a possible board issue or what? I replaced the battery and it seems to be working fine it just went down at a really bad time. I hold my gun pretty firmly but have only shut it off during a game on myself once or twice.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and if I may have missed a thread or something in my searches please point it out to me. Much appreciated!
