mini problems. leaks, inconsistant, ect...
soo i just bought my mini from a guy i went to school with. he said he only shot 20 balls out of it and it looks like he did cus its in really pretty good shape. Or so i thought...
i played the whole day of speedball at my leagues last week with no problems. we used shake and bake hoppers so i couldnt really get a feel for how the gun reacts shooting fast. but never had any problems with it untill the very last game.
The gun shot one ball hard like its suposed to, then dribbled a few out. looked at my tank and i was low on air, so i figured thats what the problem was. i shot a few more and it shot hard, then dribbled a few, hard then dribbled a few. soo i just assumed for some reason i was out of air. idk why, but i figured nothing was wrong because, well, its new.
So fast forward to this weekend. went on a pb trip with my buddies. got the tank all aired up, aired up the gun and it did the same thing. it shot like 3 hard, 4 soft, 5 hard, couple soft ect..
we adjusted the fps, the thign on the front of the asa so its between 150 and 200 psi, and still nothing. i never messed with any of the settings before i left so nothing got changed. it was also leaking from behind the bolt.
tore it apart and actually found a gouge under where the board is. not paintball related. idk how it got there. its just a gouge, not a hole. ill post a pic if anyone cares to see, but i dont think that is the problem.
we cleaned the hell out of it because it chopped a ball. relubed everything and put it back together and now there is a really bad leak from right where you screw the tank in. not under the gun, but right where the tank screws in at. the transfer tube or whatever its called is tight to the bottom and the oring is in there and in tact.
im going to be bringing it to my local shop and having them look at it and in the mean time, im getting the asa for it from ansgear. i hate that asa anyway and im hoping it will fix the problem.
sooo, sorry for writing a book about it but i want to give as much info as possible. if anyone has any clue as to what it might be, im all ears.
