Angry Cycling problems!

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.

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.

Yeah. I've been having this problem with my new Custom. I'll probably just take my Maddmann spring out of my old classic 98.

I fixed it, my sear spring was weirdly stretched looking, so I supplemented it with a little rubber band and it works great now. No problems.

Why should I use the stock velocity adjuster? that seems to defeat the purpose of the stabilizer.

the stabilizer isn't there to adjust your velocity.. its there to keep your velocity constant... u still use the velocity adjuster on your marker.. the reg just helps keep it steady...

But since the tippmann adjuster acts like a restrictor, it seems like it would be advantageous to run it a far open as possible to gain air efficiency.

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.

the holes on the vertical adapters can be quite small as NN pointed out once, so if yo uhave the skill/tools, widening that a little never hurts...

Reaper, when I said sleep, i meant sleep in too

I don't have a vertical adaptor, I am running a female stabilizer on my drop foreward. Thanks for the tip though.

back out all the way, and adjsut the reg to the point where the gun is not leaking out the barrel in the uncocked position. Then shoot a few times. If still bad, up hte PSI again. Then adjust velocity

I didn't see that you had it at 300 psi either. Unless you have some work on your valve and bolt and such, double it.
