etek 1 help

I've recently been servicing an etek ego marker. The problem with the gun is that when fired the rammer will only move a fraction of an inch,and therefore will not hit thevalve pin, causing it not to fire. I've rebuilt the HPR, LPR, lubed the bold and rammer, reset all pressures and the board to stock. and obviously switched out the battery several times. With eyes off the solenoid still clicks when the microswitch is hit (by the trigger, so the trigger is not poorly adjusted), so if anyone had any feedback or knowledge about this situation and could weigh in, I'd greatly appreciate it before i disassemble the solenoid and/or replace it.
Thank you

Have you replaced the o-rings on the rammer and played with the regs?

Check to see if there are any pinched/clogged hoses/barbs. Sounds like training mode. Does your Etek have a Star frame?
