Well nevermind. I adjusted the trigger even tho I never touched it before EVER! It all the sudden works. Have you ever heard of anything like this?

What would cause the beeper to stop working? It worked one day and then it just stopped. Mine is a Ego8 and bone stock. I just want to make sure there isnt something more going on.... I can live without the beeper, but its broke and I would like to know why.
Thanks

could have caused this? The rings were lubed before shooting with eclipse oil, and the breech was clean. Thanks.
Could be the wrong size or the detents grabbed them if they were dry. I have never seen it. Maybe they were twisted and the friction did it. Make sure they are not twisted on the bolt.

If the screws turn easily then just the vibration of the gun could do it. Try using blue loctite or some nail polish on the threads.

I don't know if this has already been asked but i bought a used ego 08 in 2010. it is very loud when firing. Is this something that i can fix or is it just how that year of ego is?

Bill, what are the oring sizes on the qev caps on a 08 ego? Also, the only thing left of the front qev diaphragm is a ring of rubber but I could not find the center section in the block. Where should I look for it? Solenoid?
Thanks

QEV 4x1 orings.

Sure it didnt fall out when you pulled the Cap off? It is to large to fit anywhere.

hi i just bought an ego 11 a few months ago and im just sarting to tune the gun. my biggest questions are about the solenoid flow restrictors. i know restrictor A controls the backward stroke and B controls the forward stroke of the rammer. the manual says B can control velocity of the ball. i just want to know what else do these restrictors do. can they decrease consistency? does it cause more wear to the solenoid? what does restrictor A do? whats the best setting for 11fps psp ramp with the smoothest shooting?

is there any way to get a plank kit for an ego 9 anymore? I'm getting one in a trade and I'm not sure if it has it already. Thanks!

I have a solenoid leak problem in my 07 ego:


This is where it is leaking from. I have gone through standard troubleshooting:
-manifold is sealing correctly
-it is not intermittent leaking, so therefore not LPR supercharging, as per manual
-barbs are fine
-valve chamber is (seems?) fine
-rammer is/seems fine

I've done everything short of changing every single o-ring, and troubleshooting the solenoid itself. Any suggestions? It is a constant hiss from the indicated vent holes, no matter what I do.

please halp

There is no perfect setting. It is all trial and error for your marker.
The restrictors can also slow the marker speed down as well as velocity. The slower the gun shoots, the smoother it gets also.
I usually put them both 1-2 lower then factory when shooting in the lower teens per second.
Messing with them will not hurt the solenoid.

Try replacing the 14x2 LPR housing orings. Do not buy aftermarket! Get them from a tech.

Also, replace the #11 oring on the rammer.

LPR: put the screw so it is even with the top of the LPR cap then turn it in two turns.

Dwell can go up one from stock to help smoothen it out. If you dont mind slowing your marker down a bit you can also lower your solenoid restictor dials by 1.

Are there any photos or pictures with a side view of an Ego 11 with a length scale?

Hoping to get the length from behind the grip to the front of the reg.

Thank you
