Rex R1 Problems

Hey guys! i am new to paintball, and i have a rex r1 with the upgrade chip, i am having problems with the gun, and have no idea what to do. The gun was working fine on the field, then when i turn it on, and shoot the balls just fall or barely shoot out. The air pressure on the tank is 345 or so, and it was working fine before. The bolt is moving back quickly and everything, so i am not sure what else to check? there seems to be no air leaks, and i have taken the bolt, and spring out, and i don't see any problems. Does anyone know what could be causing this to the gun.

Does the screen say your low on batteries? If not try a different tank maybe your low on air/c02

If the reg on the tank says 345 what does the reg on the marker say? The gauge on the marker should read 325 to 400 psi.

this willl fix ur gun

I have the same gun and iv had the same problem . if u arent already doing this before u put in ur tank , u have to scrrew in the bigger of the two alen screw in the regulater or the grip where the whose goes in . screw that in all the way then put in ur tank ull notice that the guage on the gun is at 0 psi now u have to loosen it and u will see guage on the gun slowly getting higher do it till it reads 500 psi and u shoud be shooting fine . if u didnt know that also the velocity adjuster . and if u have any leaks from any of the two screw just put some teflon tape or plumers tape on them and they will stop leaking .

Isn't 500psi a bit too high? The operating pressue should be between 325 to 400.

but the guage on the gun isnt accurate , i dont think . and if u do put it at 250 or wutever , wen u shoot like about 4 palls per second the regulater isnt gonna have enough time to fill up again and the bolt is gonna move back and forth really fast and its gonna make u **** ur pants
