Geo 2 Solenoid Question (is this normal???)

Just curious about the operation of the solenoid. When firing, is it normal for the solenoid to shoot out a burst of air from the solenoid?

I thought I felt some air coming out of the frame when I shoot it, and so I took it apart to verify and it's coming from the area below circled in red.

I guess it's called the Spool Pack

Just to expand on the positive responses...The Geo fires by dumping air pressure from the front side of the bolt. This allows the bolt to move forward and release air on the back side of the PropShaft/Can area which is then responsible for propelling the paintball down the barrel.

The puff of air you feel is that air from the front of the bolt being released. is absolutely normal.
You broke it didn't you!

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!
