My tippy is going full auot, burping, and failing to cock. It does it if I don't pull and release firmly. Like if I slap the trigger rapidly it works, if I yank the trigger deliberately it works, but if I gently squeeze it it will double or burp.
Sometimes it just drops like there is no air on it, "thump". Pisses me off. I think I might need a stronger sear spring, mine is stretched out. Or a weaker hammer spring but that is weird. It's like it's almost out of air, even with a fresh tank. I have the tippmann adjuster pretty far out and adjusted the velocity with the screw on the stabilizer.
Try getting a Maddmann spring kit. Lately their stock springs have been junk and can produce some pretty weird symtoms. I was stumped on a gun for a few hours, threw a mainspring in it and it's been fine ever since.
If you own a Tippmann 98, you should head over to Model98.net
will do. I'm gonna put orings in it too. But I took a little bitty rubber ban and put it on along with the sear spring to supplement it and now it's working. I think I just need a new sear spring, mine was bogus I guess.
just so ya know. adjust with the velocity screw.. not the palmer... to get it shooting around 250(the indoor fps limit in MN) its 1/4 turn out from all the way in. and it sounds like your sear or sear spring is being gay. also check for wear on the bolt.
I can see where your coming from. but i sapose if you do have it all the way open and just set ur reg and dont keep adjusting it then it will work just fine. but if you find urself constantly adjusting then i would go with the adjuster on the marker. because in the regulator there is a spring that, if left alone, will 'set' in place and that 'setting' is what you want for havign good consistancy. if you keep adjusting then the spring keeps movign and it won't 'set' as well.
I think I'll adjust the stabilizer to 300fps with the adjuster open, and then use the adjuster to back it down to whatever i need for the field I'm on. It should still be pretty far open like that and i won't have to mess with the stab that much.
