Geo and Geo2 problem

Hey guys,

I need some help with my markers - geo and geo2 :
Last week at an event the both guns started acting strange - first the geo2 when firing after 1 good shot the next 2-3 shots were really low (the sound that the guns does is a little puff, you know that sound ) and again one good shot. It has happened to me before I assumed low battery. This week it happened again with both guns now the geo2 does one good shot, few not full shots. The other gun's bolt is doing almost the same but the bolt is sticking after few shots and it's leaking air. I tried new batteries and wiping the lube from the bolts. It works alright for few shot's and the the same problem. Any idea what might be the problem or what to do next? Maybe change all of the o-rings?

With the Geo2 replace the 9v with a lithium ion battery. Clean the ball check valve in the noid. If it still sticks replace it. Try not to over lube the marker. When to much lube is used it cycles threw them noid causing the ball check valve to swell and get stuck. Just enough lube to make the orings look wet.

Thanks that was the one place I didn't know you have to clean. I also did that with the other Geo and they both work fine with no signs of sticking. I guess month of over-lubing did that trick on me :/

my guess is too much lube...you only want to "glaze" the o-rings with a lube
don't take that a sexual way either lol

Make sure you glaze the can well. You don't want your bolt to stick...........if you know what I mean.


Couldn't resist
