Carefully remove the check ball and give a good clean. If that doesn't do the trick, try this.....

Good luck and let us know how you make out.

You'll need to replace the manifold housing. (The black part of the solenoid that everything goes into).

Contact your nearest Regional Service Center and they can help.

I Love that it takes longer to open a package for a repair on an Ego than it takes to actually fix the gun!

For the Love of Paintball....Use OILon the rammer!

Yah i had the same problem. I had the gun teched and the same part had to get replaced. The tech told me the reason it broke in the first place was because of over pressurizing the gun.

Any word yet?

I'm curios on how you'll make out. Nothing is worse than trading a good gun for a bummed one. But rest assured, once you have your GEO up and running you will never go back
