Please Someone HELP!!! Timmy problem!!

This all started the other day when i tood my grip off to tighten up the reg housing. Now the wont shoot all the time. Even with a full tank of air. I pull the trigger and the bolt moves forward just enough to knock a ball into the barrel. Its like not enough air is getting to the bolt to fully shoot it. But sometimes it will shoot perfect for a few shots. Please someone help. I tried to play tonight and the gun would work for a minute the it would start barely moving the bolt.

It sounds like you have a pinched hose coming from the LPR to the solenoid. Did you mess with the regs, or just take the grip frame off and tighten the housing? Good luck.

All i did was unsrew the 2 screws holding the grip frame on and moved the grip frame back about a half inch just enough to get to the screw holding the reg housing in place. I tightened the reg housing and put the grip right back on. Please someone help.

Try loosening (or removing) your grip frame. Then gas up the gun and try shooting it. As long as the wires/hose are still connected to the main body, the gun will still shoot, since it does not have a sear (of course). If a hose was pinched then the gun should work fine with the grip frame off.

If that doesn't work, loosen the reg housing and see if that helps. By backtracking through the steps you took the other day, you can find what the problem is. Once found, you can focus on the source, until you hopefully fix it.

Good luck! I wish I had more advice, but I am new to this gun.

When you put the grip frame back on did you put the longer screw back in rear? If you put it in the front it can puncture the ram sleeve. Just another possibile problem.

I just took the entire grip frame apart and put it back together exactly following the Timmy instruction booklet. Then it still would do the same thing. When i had it apart i exameined every little piece and it all looked fine. Does anyone know what it could be?

Check to see of you have an O-Ring under the board so it doesn't ground out to the grip frame. Also check the Ram and see if your O-Ring on the back is OK. Also check and see if your stopper on the back of the Rams is there. It looks like a like half rounded rubber bumper. Mine did a simular thing when the ram stopper broke and the ram wouldn't return right. Check those and see if that helps.

Retarded - NOT!

Greetings,
Don't feed retarded!
You were smart enough to buy a Timi!!
And you were intelligent enough to keep asking until you got it fixed.
Then, you fixed it with your own two hands.
Sounds pretty smart to me - DEFINATELY NOT RETARDED!
Now, go shoot somebody with an (insert favorite OTHER marker name here) and you will feel even better.
