calling all ion techs..

here is the prob. my friend picked up an ion virtued and it shot funny. first shot was good but after that the bolt throws half way not giving enough air. so I figure that its settings on the board and just threw in my old blackheart and it still does it. I have lubed and changed bolts and even changed to my old reg... anyone got any help out there for me?

could be an oring or pressure is too low... leaking anywhere???? make sure you lube everything you need too

EDIT... your dwell on your board may not be right for his ion. every ion takes different dwell!!!!

Make SURE that it's not batteries (buy a new pack of duracells then try). If it isn't, it is most likely your dwell being way too low. Use the dwell stickies and set it up properly. Every gun is a bit different so don't base it off of someone else's with similar upgrades.

couldn't have said it better, myself.

In order of most likely:

- Battery
- Dwell
- Swollen Oring
- Blocked QEV etc.

It most likely is the dwell setting. You can revert the settings back to stock using the manual.

you know sometimes ppl dont screw in ther tanks all the way. make sure you do that first. see if the air is droping in the reg when you shoot. then check ur battery orings ect. like geekypb said.

It's also possible that the tank could be screwed in too far. Some asa/tank combos, when screwed in too far, will actually restrict the air flow. So, if screwing it in more doesn't help, try backing it out a 1/4 turn or so.

try raising your dwell, too low of dwell results in shooting down
