Invert Mini Bolt Stick

Hey guys, I have had this Invert Mini for a little while now, about a year and Ive used it fairly well. All of a sudden, the bolt started sticking and that kept the balls from being loaded. I took it out and replaced a badly torn gasket, and lubed it up really well. I put it back in, and sure enough it was working A- Okay. But after a while it started to do that same thing. But that was only after a round and a half of playing, Only shooting about 150 rounds at the most. Any ideas on what could be wrong with it? Thanks. By the way I upgraded the ASA, it's the Empire Axe ASA.

Make sure the spring is seated properly, that it clicks onto the bolt with the smaller end.

Aftermarket or stock bolt? I assume stock. Make sure you are lubricating the bolt guide tip and working the lubricant into the inner O-rings of the bolt.

Edit: What lube are you using?

Yes make sure that you are lubing the marker with a Dow33 based lube. Have you changed the o-rings recently??
