I bought a PM5 used - it was well cared for / upgraded by the previous owner, only missing eyes. I thought it would be a cheap and great learner marker for me, and I've taken it apart and cleaned and put it back together multiple times successfully. I didn't repair the eyes yet because that top back allen screw is stripped round, so I'll have to carefully drill at some point. I really really like it, for a starter electronic marker it's been a dream.
However, I put it back together most recently and am having a problem that is hopefully obvious to you marker gurus.
When I shoot, there is a delay between the next paintball feeding. BOOM - foosh - foosh - foosh - until I pause and hear the hopper kick in. I've tried different hoppers, and the hopper is super fast pouring into a pod caddy. When I pull the trigger BOOM -- I can pause 1 second -- hopper whirr -- BOOM.
