A1 not cycling

I have a rage A1 the marker airs up, shoots one shot then it just leaks out of the breach area. if you push the bolt back with a finger, it seals back up and it will fire another shot then do the same thing. any help is appreciated. P.S. I have adjusted the dwell settings up and then down still with no luck

Rules out bolt stick - check your detents, bolt and breech seal. If removing the breech seal causes the issue to stop, just scrape out your old seal adhesive and reglue it with a dab of super glue.

If you're not experiencing any bolt stick, open your rotobreech and hold it firmly so that it can't fly around, then fire the gun while looking down into the bolt pin slot to see if the ram itself is sticking forward. If it is, you'll need a new ram.

You'll need to remove the bolt from the breech, disconnect the eye ribbons and solenoid connection inside the right hand grip pannel, then remove the grip frame. There will be a pin at the back/bottom of the marker body, pull it out. Grab the adjuster and pull out. You might need something to push on the hammer end of the bolt.

The dwell settings are strickly a solenoid function, which isn't going to help with the issues you are describing. You either have some extreme bolt stick, or a bad ram.

If you have a stock A1, you may have the original 1 piece eye strap, and red detents. I suggest replacing immediately with new 3 piece eye covers, as that solved the majority of bolt stick for users.

If you have a stock A1 (No magno valve), odds are it has a gen1 ram that is bad.

If it is a gold colored ram, you're probably looking at replacing it.

If it is red (Magno ram),or blue (STR ram), you should be alright.

He's ruled out bolt stick since the ram sticks forward even without the bolt in place. Definitely isolated to the bottom tube.

Was about to suggest a new ram. I had the same issue with my stock A1 ram.

I am glad you got it fixed.
