Your hopper Isn't keeping up with your gun. What hopper are you using? If its not the hopper it could be your eyes, are your batteries dead?

i don't think so because when i take the gun apart the bolt and inner part of the gun is coated in paint. also the barrel is a .693 bore so i don't think it's the barrel

OK, then maybe the opperating pressure is too high or the paint is too brittle?
