If you can't get it fixed I'll take it off your hands AIM: pumpactnpmp, but have you tried taking out the bolt and polishing everything

Check for broken shell fragments. If you're comfortable enough with disassembling the gun, I would recommend taking off the frame, bottom tube end cap, and pump handle, and then using a wooden dowel through the front of the barrel to force the bolt out the back. It might give you a better idea of what's going on.

I would say you should take the frame off and the hammer out and immerse the thing in some hot water for awhile. That should soften up any shell and let you get the bolt out. Just dry it out with a hair-dryer afterwards and oil up your valve.

Sounds like the back portion of the bolt is stuck in the firing postion. This means that those ball bearings are stuck out and pushing on the front of the bolt wont help. I would take off the pump rod and pump, and clamp the pgp in place (using towels on the clamp/vice so you dont mar the gun). Then put a rag around the outer portion of the back of the bolt, and pull it with pliers. I doubt that a paintball is causing this problem. After you have pulled the bolt out of the gun, drive out the pin on the underside of it and dissasemble the bolt. Inspect the insides and clean and lube them a lot, and it should work like new.
