Arrow Invert Mini BLOWBACK!!!!HELP!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsnG_pKJD7A

Above is the link showing my problem.It is me describing the issue, and then shooting my gun. It busts paint in the hopper due to outrageous BLOWBACK. I've been told it may be due to the poppet's vent valve but I don't have a new poppet to replace this one with. Can someone save me time and money and tell me exactly what's wrong!!!!?

THANKS!

your missing the poppet spring no? have u tried replacing it? if it is a v2 mini and your missing the spring thats most likely the cause of your blowback

Missing poppet spring wouldn't make it break paint from blowback alone.

You need to update your poppet to the newest version, and then tune your marker with the tuning guide found in the ultimate sticky.

i thought the only difference between a v2 and v3 poppet was the diameter of the hole the spring sits in.

Replace o-rings on bolt guide and out side of bolt, and on brass poppet.

This problem can be caused by your breech not sealing allowing air to blow up the feed tube or your poppet not resetting fast enough allowing extra air to come out after the bolt has reset.

Assuming your problem is the latter, a new version of the poppet with the spring could help you. Make sure you keep your poppet well greased.

Other things you could try:
-Clean your solenoid - i believe there is a guide in the stickys on how to do this
-Double check that the solenoid check valve is in place - see manual/stickys

Any one of the poppets with the spring will help. The original poppet was junk. Just took a quick look at your vid, I couldnt tell but was your loader so far down in your feedneck to where it was blocking the feedneck opening? If your loader is down too far sealing the blow back air into the loader, it will cause a nasty pop corn effect.

Initially I was told it was a V2 Mini. Turns out, it's V1. I am almost certain, as I am sure most of you are that it's definately the LEVEL 1 Poppet. I'll replace it and get back to everyone. I have studied the Invert Mini thoroughly and reviewed several pieces it contains. It's original owner upgraded certain things to give it a "V2" look however, the poppet is LEVEL 1 for sure. If I have further problems I will report them in this thread and let everyone know.

I'd like to thank some people for GREAT AMOUNTS of help, and support: If your name is on here, please send me a friends request and I'll be sure to ask you more about different tech issues because you are greatly appreciated!!

jared@onpoint,sdzell18,bloodymurder!!!! THANKS!!!!
