Empire Axe help Please!!!!

i was at my local paintball arena yesterday and i had recently got an virtue board oled board and a luker bolt (both used) .while playing i had a air burst i guess you could call it and it was running out the front of my barrel as i was walking off the field i heard a second burst. i checked all o rings nothing was torn or anything. After that i re-lubed everything and went out then it started jamming and breaking my paint. i had my dwell set to 4 ms and the pressure down to 140 . so i threw on my stock bolt and went to the chrono room and i would shot and they would roll out. Please any ideas!?

Let's put this in the Empire area before anyone jumps down your throat about "right section" and all that.

A good idea/rule of thumb is always to put everything back to factory stock, then see if it's still doing whatever it was doing. Stock board, stock bolt, stock settings. Fresh cleaning and lube.

Some of the guys in here (including KEE's own in house tech guys) can probably give more ideas, too.

I get that. I wouldn't commit to saying the problem comes from any of the aftermarket parts. Swapping back to stock allows you to find out if they WERE the problem, or if there's something else going on with the gun. Gives you a baseline to work from. If you find that it's still not right even with everything stock, then we can figure out what's going wrong. If it works fine stock, then you know it's something in a part or setting. Add stuff back in one part at a time then until it stops working, and you'll have found the culprit!

alright i figured that's what i should do just still asked maybe someone might have had the same problem. do you know where i can find a online manual for the virtue oled board for empire axe? because i don't want to wait for them to send a manual unless that's really what i have to do.

Yep, Mini and Axe settings should be the same. I'd start with the settings found in the official Axe Ultimate Sticky, posted by Jamie Ezell of KEE. He probably knows how to set these up.

I've never heard of or experienced a problem like this with my Axes, so my first guess would be a problem with that Virtue board. Sounds like it is half activating the solenoid or something.

Was it breaking paint in the barrel or in the breech?

It sounds like there are a few things to check - dwell should be at least 7ms with the stock bolt and pressure at 190psi. The paint issue could be related to the small bolt guide orings being worn and needing to be replaced.
