Ion Puffing air

Hey guys, my buddy has an all stock ion. When he screws in his tank, the air goes into the gun and the reg shows regular psi. So he turns on the gun and shuts off the eyes and trys to dry fire and it just makes a little puffing sound that you can almost barely hear. There is no bolt movement either. We took it apart and saw that the bolt was lubed good and everything looked like it was in the right order. There is no leaks or anything, and I'm pretty sure the puff is coming from the noid. If you guys could help me or have had this similar problem and know whats up, that would help me out a lot. Thanks

Raise your dwell and check your battery those are the two obvious and most common problems...
