bolt travels half length and doesnt puff out gas

So I just bought this ion and it fired fine with the exception of the eyes being blocked with old paint. I take the marker apart to clean the eyes and lube my o-rings with marker oil which was a bad deal. Now when i shoot it, its ultra quiet cause its not shooting out gas through the front and the bolt only travels up to the detents. Could this be a result of using marker oil? does dwell reset cause i had the battery disconnected? could my detents prevent my bolt from extending?

either way i bought new o-rings from markerkits.com and some hater sauce to do it right this time. Please let me know if im on the right path. we're trying to play wednesday and so far nothing has worked out for me. I'm alot more used to mechanical guns like spyders.

Yeah, using any oil on a spool valve is NOT a good idea (can clog hoses, go into the noid, etc...). May very well be the reason this is occurring. With that said what I would first do is clean everything up, REPLACE your battery (first thing you should do actually) no matter how new the one you have on there is. Make sure your new battery is a good brand name one too. The dwell should not reset when you change/remove the battery, but after doing the above I would def. take a look at it and reset it. Lube your ion with Dow33 based lubes ONLY from now on. Hater will do fine.

Thanks for the input. My kit has tiny o rings in it and I was wondering if the banjo bolts had replaceable seals. I just have to know before I knickers the ones that are currently on this marker trying to take them off. I hope this fixes my problem

Check the stickies and zdspb.com, they really do have alot of info. Also yes the banjo orings on the inside above the threading can be changed out. Check the website for correct size please, you will gather more info along the way.

does the bolt return to its rest position? what kind of bolt/board/qev/detents do you have? can you hear any leaks?

the reason air is not coming out of the front of your bolt is because it is not moving far enough forward to release the air. so you need to worry about getting the bolt to make a full cycle. make sure you used the right sized o-rings and lubed properly and as stated above check the battery. a bad battery is the cause of most problems with paintball guns and loaders. its amazing the variety of problems that occur with a **** battery.

Hey thanks for your help guys. I replaced all the o rings and the problem stayed the same. Then I put in a new battery and still didn't fix the problem. Then I set dwell to about 50 and it worked fine! I guess I must have decreased the dwell somehow. Thanks for the input I'm glad I fixed it in time for the woodsball game tomorow

lube the ion with dow33 type lube, and set your dwell as per the stickies. As long as you're using a fresh battery, this should allow your gun to work just fine.

you should try replacing your battery,unless you have a good fresh battery your ion will have problems.

you should up your dwell, read threw the stickies on how to up the dwell.

using a small amount of gun oil should be too bad for the ion but it's not good for it lol.

hater sauce or sl33k is the way to go (dow 33)

It depends on the gun and if you have a QEV or not.
