Tippmann A5 with E-Grip fingering inconsistently

I have a Tippmann A5 that I put a new E-Grip on, marker works fine with the manual trigger but with the E-Grip it will only fire after pulling the trigger several times, and sporadic at that. You can hear the trigger activate but it will not release the bolt. I have tried to change the dwell time, but the E-Grip triggers once then powers down, have to reset to factory and operates again.

I would try a fresh name brand battery or one of the 9v batteries made for paintball. Sometimes the cheaper batteries or even older name brand 9vs just don't have the juice.

I use these in my Tippmann E-grips:

Thank you for your reply, I did try a new battery, it turned out to be a marker issue. I had purchased the A5 used off of ebay and the previous owner had greased the internals instead of oiling them, I thought I had it all cleaned up, but it gummed back up. I tore the marker back apart and cleaned it again. All is working as it should now. Hopefully it doesn't gum back up.

Good to hear! Sometimes a good old o-ring change will help quite a bit too.
