GEO 3.5 + puffing

Hey guys,

So me and my teammate are having an issue with our 3.5's after cleaning our gun and properly re lubing it and everything when we go to shoot we just get a puffing sound. We have kept all of the settings stock and havent replaced or changed anything from the way it was shipped to us (we wanted to break it in before messing with dwell and whatnot). Any one else having this issue and could help us? Thanks!

Where is the SFR at? Try turning it up.

even if the battery level says full, try replacing the battery. i had a battery recently go flat that was brand new and the gun wouldnt shoot at all, or would puff. is your reg turned up enought to give the gun the pressure to cycle. geo's typically dont puff very easily.

turn the sfr all the way up. If it works, that means that your tanks pressure is too low to handle that slow of a bolt speed.

Sorry to hear you're currently having issues, we'll see if we can get you and your friend back up and running.

Firstly if you can shoot the marker with the eyes off, if the bolt moves slightly I would guess that you have too much grease on the bolt. Wipe it down and see if this helps your issue.

If the bolt doesn't move at all, I would recommend changing the 14x2 NBR70 o-ring on your propshaft and the rear 020 NBR70 o-ring on the can.

Both can be seen on page 9 of the following:

Let me know if that solves your issue and if not we'll go from there

If you have any urgent technical enquiries please contact:

Winter Is Coming! - Have you updated your marker to it's winter settings? If not find out how on the link below:
