I have recently been experiencing an issue with my CS1 which consists of the marker losing a great deal of velocity as it begins to ramp (or what I call shoot down).
If I pull the trigger once, shooting a single ball at a time, the velocity is perfectly fine. It only begins to shoot down and lose velocity after ramping is engaged.
The funny thing is, when I disengage the ASA POPS, relieving the marker of all air, and then re-engage the POPS - it shoots just fine. No shoot down at all. Over the past few weeks of playing, I have had times where I would only have to turn off/on the POPS once at the start of the day and be fine for the rest of the day. And other times, I have had to turn the POPS on/off during game play on multiple occasions throughout the day to keep it from shooting down while ramping.
Here is what I have done so far to try an fix the issue:
- I first changed my battery. (I have done this twice now, so I do not think this is the cause of the issue)
- I clean my bolt and re-lube (lightly) after every weekend of play.
- A week ago, I took my internal reg inside of the grip frame (which is connected to the POPS ASA) and cleaned it off, then re-lubed the o-rings and internal o-ring seat. I also cleaned and lightly lubed the piston during this time.
- I have lightly messed with the exterior dwell that is located above the trigger, but I have left it at the halfway position.
The only thing I can think of that I have no checked is my solenoid. I guess it could have a small amount of dirt in it that could be causing this issue? I am going to take it apart today and clean/re-lube as well.
Note: I use PlanetEclipseTV's youtube channel to do any cleaning or taking apart of my CS1. I also am running a Ninja SL77 V2 reg with output around 550. (My POPS ASA is not too tough to engaged.)
Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated. I am on pbnation a lot, so if I left out anything - I will be responding promptly.
