SO, you have a problem?

well look through the list, and if your problem isnt listed, THEN ASK!

BUT

there are rules-
  • 1. List your set-up, any upgrades, or anything else that goes with or on the gun.
  • 2. Describe what is happening! dont just say, "somethings wrong. help me!"
  • 3. If there is a leak, FIND IT FIRST! no one can tell you where a leak is coming from, Know this before you post!
  • 4. Describe the problem FULLY! tell us every piece of info you can!
  • 5. And lastly, be patient and cooperative! Help us, help you!

  • 5. Breaking paint? -----> fix
  • 6. leaking at the rear end of the gun? -----> fix
  • 7. gun shooting very slow(air related)? -----> fix
  • 8. gauge not reading pressure when air is on and tank is full? -----> fix
  • 9. bolt not cocking back/ have to cock it manually? -----> fix 1 fix 2 fix 3
  • 10. leak from qev? -----> fix
  • 11. "ticking" in Hpr? -----> fix
  • 12. QEV stuck in ram housing? -----> fix
  • 13. Bolt "whining"? -----> fix
  • 14. regs acting weird, but orings look ok? -----> fix
  • 15. promaster shooting slower than usual? -----> fix
  • 16. need to take your trigger out? -----> fix
  • 17. gun not shooting or cycling? -----> fix
  • 18. empire valve acting up? -----> fix

I agree as there seems to be a lot of the same or similar issues posted. A general trouble shoot and maintenance guide would be great.

theres on in the manual at the back, but it doesnt cover much, so this is ye, a good i dea,



One that alot of us have experienced, say after lubing the lpr and re assembling it, we air it up to set it, and it leaks out of the little hole in the front of the lpr.

TO fix this, simply keep turning it up AS LONG AS THE NOID INST LEAKING, only when its leakign out the front, keep turning it up, and the leak will get louder. But eventually, the bolt will slam back, and the leak stops, adjust according to the manual there.

my gun wouldn't shoot and it was just dropping balls for each pull:
check the hpr guage and if it's to high the noid will not cycle to prevent it from breaking so turn it down...if too low turn it up.
the lpr pressure could also be a problem.

if your gun wont cock, but the gauge reads correct pressure-
lube your valve, lpr, and hpr. if this doesnt work-
turn the lpr up past the leak and see what happens, this is what happened to me.

If you have a problem with your detents slicing paint, check for obstructions. If there are none you can A. Cut down the detent springs a little bit or B. Use 1 detent as long as you aren't double feeding.

I'm having a problem

It seems as if my eyes wont work...
I have new batterys in my halo, the paint is fine. When I turn the gun on, it shoots as if it does when the eyes are on, and only dry firing it. (Capped at like 8 bps)

When i turn the eyes off and dry fire, it shoots perfect and fast.

Anybody know whats wrong?

Check your wires. One or more may be pinched. Clean your eyes. Also check to see that there is not crusty paint inside the body, obstructing the IR beam from the eyes.

Take you gun into a dark room with no light and try to dryfire w/ the eyes on then try shooting in in a lighted room if it shoots in the dark but not in the light then the wires are pinched or mis-aligned(sp)

Eyes mis-aligned(sp)

Check if the eye that emits the light is working. Get a phone with a camera on it, or a digital camera , point it inside the feedneck, you should see a white light if the eye that sends the signal is working.
