geo 2.1 "choking" problem

i have a geo 2.1 and pretty often when ever i am shooting the gun it will choke, cause the gun to not fire or a very soft/ very low fps shot. i cleaned the bolth and lubed it up, i cleaned the filter inside the gun but it still does it, can anyone help me with this issue? any suggestions would be great!

Change ur dwell to 12.5 ur solenoid can't keep up with ur gun set that low... Yes I know every gun is different, but set ur dwell to 12.5 and I doubt u have the same problem... And u won't give anything up I get a rotor and 7 pods off of a 68 fill running 12.5 dwell

ive had the same problem and started my own thread a couple days ago on here. Got suggestions to change the dwell (which was already at 13.5), change batter, and to clean the ball check valve and noid

Also I had a problem with the two orings on the outside of the bottom assembly in the reg. Specifically speaking of the ones that sit under the reg swivel. Not sure why honestly, but it caused my geo2 not to cycle at all.

If changing your orings and checking your ball check valve doesn't work, another possible issue is that your tank reg is somehow not flowing properly into the marker. I've found this issue out a few times with tank regulators where the tank reg pin sits in a tapered hole. Sometimes the ASA pin actually covers the whole when it's "on" and the marker is starved of air. Since you have a 2.1, it's a little harder to figure this out since there's only 1 setting of pushing it on. With a twist knob ASA, you can find out by backing out the knob a little.
