Gun won't fire...

I am a little new to the Epiphany. My brother purchased one a while back, and has only had the chance to use it a few times. We went to the field near us on Friday, and had problems with it all day.

First things first. The last time I personally used the marker, it shot fine. Did the standard greasing up of parts, and reassembled afterwards, and the marker shot fine.

I am assuming the operating pressure of the Epiphany is 200 psi. But at the field, at 200 psi, the marker wouldn't fire. Trigger pulls registered on the marker's board, and paint was loaded, the marker was gassed up, showing 200 psi, but no firing. As we decreased the velocity to about 150 psi, the marker would shoot, but we only achieved a maximum of about 210 fps (between 200 and 210).

Any ideas on how to fix this? I took the regulator off and nothing is wrong with it, but I am still not able to get up to my field's limit of 275 fps.

yeah, one of my friends, who owns an ion recommended i look at the dwell. i saw a video on how to check, since the manual for the marker is oh-so-thorough. we will see what happens.

I would try changing the battery. Sometimes the battery can turn the gun on where it lights up, but there is not enough battery to shoot the paintball. This happened to me and i asked the tech and he said try a new battery and it worked.

one time this happened to me, a technicion told me it was due to the reg being over pressurized, he took a ball and loaded it into the breach and turned the eye on, the marker fired the ball and then he took the wrench and turned down the velocity screw thingy, after that he had to do something with the dwell.

Yeah, messing with just the dwell didn't change anything. Still only operates at a psi lower than 140... once it hits 140, it doesn't fire. It is possible my reg is over-pressurized, the SP reg is a piece of crap. My original thought was that I needed to replace the reg, my second guess is that one of the hoses inside the marker was either too tight or too lose... but yeah, marker still screws up.

My epiphany's hose was leaking a few years ago, so I got a switchblade and a hair dryer, I heated up the hose with the hair dryer and carefully sliced it from the piston thingy that it goes onto. Then I took a spare epiphany hose, heated up the end of the hose with a hair dryer and pushed onto the piston.


It was the big long hose on the solenoid.
