Question Need help! The quicker the better please.

Earlier today when the tank was attached the bolt would pop forward several times as if the epiphany was being fired and now that it has been taken apart cleaned and greased the bolt will not move at all. The regulator has been checked!! I am out of ideas and need help.

Ok what precisely happened? when it popped forward were you pulling the trigger? What happens when you try to shoot?

EDIT: Chill dude, its a forum, not IM. We don't sit here scanning it nonstop haha.

Was it just kind of going forward by itself? Like maybe one of the orings were giving out and letting the bolt slip or some thing. Also check the battery. The ion will still turn on and the noid will click even if the battery is really low. But it won't shoot. So start there

Yeah I'm thinking either o-ring or even a solenoid problem possibly. And always when you have any kind of problem replace the battery first.

air is not cycling through the bolt. bolt get jammed with co2 attached...air is trapped in hose thats located underneath feedneck and stays there until i start to remove the hose. there is a little air purging through the grip and idk if thats normal.

Co2?? Do you mean Co2 or do you mean compressed air (nitrogen)?

uh yeah....Co2 and the epiphany are not friends at all. What more than likely happened is that liquid Co2 got into your gun and froze the solenoid and all kinds of other jazz. take everything completely apart (on a tarp or something in case it is messy) and leave it out to dry. Then go buy an HPA tank, put it back together and hope for the best. I hate to say it but you may be in some trouble. :/

I would suggest giving it to the guys at your local pro shop, they have a much better chance of getting it fixed up to be honest.

And for future reference, if the gun uses electricity, don't use Co2 unless you know for a fact that it has an "anti-siphon" set up on it.

This^^^^


ya i have been fixing my friends epi for a week and have learned to take apart and ready manual front to back, it says no c02 withouth the anti-siphon. Might watch a few youtube videos on complete tear down and clean up or just take it to a shop if you have that option good luck

And just to make sure is the trigger to far back and when it goes back to starting position is it letting the micro switch pop back out. I've adjusted mine befor to where with out air it works but when aired up it will activate the switch then not deactivate.

Thats actually a good point semperfi, although he said the bolt cycled several times the first time he aired it up. But do check that out anyways, always look for the easy fix haha.
