Your bolt is sticking. Replace the bolt O rings, clean out the upper tube with a squeege and oil the bolt well.

First off, dont use lube in a piranha, it causes problems like your having. Use ER oil or gold cup oil.

Do everything im going to list.
1. Clean your upper and lower tube with a squeege. When removing your valve, make sure you put in the right way. If its in the wrong way right now it could be the source of your problem.
2.When your hammer is out check the o-ring. If its a loose fit or not the blue o-ring thats your problem.
3. Check your bolt o-rings, once again make sure there not worn and loose.
4. Re-OIL all the o-rings, do NOT use lube.

The guns arent that complicated, that should fix your problem.

turn up the velocity or use the blue or white spring. clean the piss out of your gun and only use pmi oil on the parts. oil up all the orings and the valve. put a few drops directly on the cup seal too. you might have a VERY slight bend in your cocking rod or bolt as well.

everyone is entitled to an opinion. in my opinion, the sav is too thick. when in doubt, go with what the manufacturer recomments!

back to gun sav....when they say you can use it on any gun, thats just a selling point.

i could see you saying a lube like sleek is thick but gun sav is nice an smooth, and thin.
