Unhappy Etha problems- please help

So my Etha is having so problems. I can only get about one or two shots of, then it stops firing. It's being very inconsistent with the air on those shots as well. Does anyone have any ideas?

Make sure that the bolt, bolt guide and bumper are completely dry. If there is any lube of any kind on those parts it will cause the bolt to stick. Also make sure you have a fresh brand name battery in the gun.

I did, still having problems. The bolt is cycling normally, and it only happens when the air tank is in and im firing, so I think it might be the inline reg.

If you have the ASA screwed all the way in try backing it off half a turn. The ASA may be too far into the pin valve causing air flow to be restricted. Other wise rebuild the HPR. The spare parts kit has enough in it to rebuild the thing a few times over.

We had a few at the store that had an issue with the Bolt Bumper (pad) that would create suction on the paintball and cause double feeding and ball breaks. We cut a few slots in the bumper and now it's perfect.

This should only happen if there is lube on the bumper. The bumper and the bolt and bolt guide should be completely dry.
