Geo3 bolt stick... maybe paint?

Hey guy, today at practice my geo was getting bolt stick after the first case of paint. Its got about 30k on it and has never had an issue. So specs on the gun..
Soft tip bolt
SFR all the way down
Dwell 27
290Fps
Solenoid power low

Nothing about the gun has changed, its been that way since I bought it. I use PE grease and clean it after every weekend of play. The reason I think it may be a paint issue is because the few times I pulled the bolt out it had oil on it and another geo3 and geo2 went down with the same issue and they both have never had that problem before.
The gun was fine if I pulled the bolt and cleaned it after every case. This is the first time I used this paint to.

Any thoughts?

Try changing your battery, with a name brand battery. Mine did that one time.

If the paint is wet it could be it. Gelatin is really sticky so if it gets on the bolt oring and sits long enough it would cause bolt stick.
But next time turb the SFR to between 1-2oclock and you should be fine.

The paint was pretty oily. Not wet and not like a broken ball in the bag. If you've ever used the paint at Boston indoor thats what his concern is. Hi Johnny

Even with correct amount of PE lube and fresh battery, mine also does not like to function properly for very long with SFR all the way down. I bet they will release another SRF adjuster at some point to correct this, or a new stock dwell recommendation (have not tried yet). More then likely the manufacturing was not exactly to spec on every SFR and some might be a little too restrictive?

The only time I had to turn my sfr up is when I play in cold weather lime 45* or less.
