t.e.s. not recocking. burping, lose's pressure

well, stock tes. shockteck bolt 50 gram switch. took awhile to get this thing fixed. rebuilt reg at least 20 times cleaned and lubed. still farts and burps 1 shot no recock and pressure drops to 100 psi. today worked on it and found something. i was loseing air at hammer seal. what i did was wrap tepflon tape around hammer, put back seal, used co2, to test eye off. guess what, 300 psi, shot recocks good, dry fire works like when i got it 5 years ago!!!! will put a vid up on it soon, going test it with ball's.

i think that is 1 of the main cause's for tes's not shooting and recocking. post comments below..

I would buy that.Makes sense,but just 1 ?....Did you hear the air leak or was it just dumb luck you thought of putting tepflon on it?
One other reason for this is people get to messing with the spring pacs to get faster speeds and lower presure.The problem with doing this is most tes models really really dont like to fight to stiff of a spring..I have found that the max on my tes and rex R1 ( same gun incase somebody does not know) is a gold spring with med spacer,any more than that and it will not recock.

just dumb luck i guess, i tried everything so far. new reg, couldnt even get fps up beyond 150 fps, did'nt hear it leaking, so i just took a chance. tried it with paint worked very good! note stock tes, shocktek bolt, 50 gm switch stock egg2 running at 325 psi, about 2000 psi on vid.

Should throw a bob long torpedo or Palm stabalizer on there.I noticed a huge diff with my R1.That and with a new balistics spring pac I droped the pressure to 200psi and added a med spacer to the spring and I am around 285-290 fps with no burps or cocking problems.

had a evil det on it to try it out. couldnt get fps up with it. still gatta chrono it to see what fps is shooting. i do have spring kit for it. i believe co2 had something to do with it, used to use co2 but switched to hpa. very good marker i think.

i put on top off o-rings, better seal. it wasnt going back far enough that is why not cathing on sear. loseing air around the seal. it is a funky seal.

oooo the hammer o ring is wore out...burping is usually the sear spring is to weak to catch or as in your case it didn't reach far enough. the fps problem could be the main springs

okay cool...

i tried wrapping it earlier... like 1-2 layers from the tip of the striker, to just before where the sear catches the striker, and all it did was tear the teflon tape to shreds. maybe i did it wrong :-\

Yes he did..it doesnt take much to push the seal out enough so dont over do it or you will tear it up and have to buy a new seal which pretty much makes this cheap fix worthless. But either way check the seal for any hairline cracks or nicks out of it beacause that will make it pointless as well..
And it also depends on weather or not you have O-rings or the single flanged seal on where you put the teflon.If it is o rings just replace them with new ones dont waste your time with this.The o rings are cheaper than the teflon..But the flanged seal is about ten bucks...

take the seal of striker, wrap around where seal goes on. about 2 to 3 wraps. then put seal back on striker/hammer. oil and reinstall. test fire. should work good!!!
i live in hawaii and cant get parts for marker. so i gatta fix my own. shipping is a killer also, gas price's up to the roof!

Hey Markade.......Get that video yet?
Go to Drews Discount Store.It is an ebay store and he offers free shipping on most of his lower priced items.He only ships to the US but he does not say if it is only the the main 49 states or not...either way the shipping on something that only weighs about 2 oz is only like a buck and that gets it to you in like 3 days. And for the flanged seals you can get 2 for $10. He doesnt have alot of stuff but he does have pretty much all tes items.. Small items Like internal parts and such..
I have delt with him and he is fast..
I got an answer back from him and he does ship to all of the US....
