Mine did that at first, the quick fix is to just hold the bolt back through the feedneck with your finger then gas it up, it works fine afterwards, i think it has something to do with the bolt not seating properly. also check if there is a o-ring(017) in the breach just behind the feed neck i later discovered that i didnt have one there and it's most likely the cause.... but promod might know a lil more.

I had the same thing happen to my v1 Vapor. Couldn't figure it out so I sent it in they put all v3 parts on it and works like a charm. Don't know if they fixed anything else though.

Holding the bolt back does not work at all. Any other suggestions?

And the o-ring in the body behind the bolt feed neck? I is it there? Have you serviced the marker in any way?

Try backing the regulator out all the way then turn the air on and slowly turn the regulator back up to let air flow into the marker and see if it still happens.

Part 3a: Leak Guide
Got a leak? I've got a fix.

Symptom: Leaking from breech/leaking down the barrel
Solution: Check (and/or replace) the rear feedneck oring (017) as well as the front bolt guide oring (013)

Symptom: Leaking from the frame
Solution: Make sure you are using a Low Pressure tank, then check (and/or replace) the two orings that sit between the frame and the body, just behind the trigger (1x3?)

Symptom: Leaking from vent port
Solution: Check the bolt sail oring (016), rear bolt guide oring (013), the external can oring (stretched 017) as well as the first oring behind the can (first oring of the four, closest to the threads. should be an 017) . I also recommend making sure the transfer ports on either side of the FT screw have NOT been touched and are sealed properly with teflon tape and/or a spec of blue threadlock

I had the same issue its the bolt guide o ring 013 I garentee it, replace that and you should be ok. (I think the lube the excessive amount of lube during shipping is what does it )

Most of the "first time user, gun is leaking" problems are from 800 PSI tanks, a worn down 013 (end of the bolt stem) or a piece of shell stuck between the bolt and the 017 in the body that everyone forgets about

No problem. Its easy to forget about them if you have never had a macroless gun before.

agreed, it's my first, also where did you manage to find a NXT violent trigger?

anyone ever tried checking if the macdev or the ego grips will fit the vapor?
