Strange Shocker NXT not working

I recently purchased a used strange shocker nxt from a friend and it worked perfectly the first time that I took it out to play. However, the second time it was shooting inconsistently with a few balls rolling out of the barrel every now and then but for the most part shooting like normal.

Now the first shot when I first turn on the gun comes out at full velocity but all the subsequent balls just roll out of the barrel. I turn the gun off turn it on and the first shot is guaranteed to go full velocity. I am new at paintball so I need some help. I bought some Hater paintball oil and cleaned and lubed all of the parts of the bolt. I also replaced the battery with a new one and made sure that none of the o-rings are broken. Anybody have any ideas on what could be wrong?

I'd try replacing the battery again. And check to see how the bolt is cycling with the hopper off, it could be an oring issue even none of them are actually broken.

Nice pick up btw. Should post a pic f you can

When I dry fire it, every shot including the first makes the same boom sound.
Heres a picture of the gun:

Wow. She looks mint and completely stock, very nice pick up indeed.

So, with out paint, its consistent with no problems. But with paint, only the first shot is solid, then a problem shooting full velocity? Have you tried shooting paint with the eyes off?
I ask that because if the eyes being on effects the shot its a clear sign the battery is going dead.

Thanks, yeah its in great condition! It still did not work with the eyes off but I raised the dwell by 1.5 ms and the gun is suddenly working. I have never touched the dwell before though and the gun worked fine the first game that I used it which is strange. Thanks for the help!

I've seen issues in the past with softer grips where they flex enough to hit the buttons on the board and moving the dwell midgame. Just something else to watch for.

Holy crap! I am jealous of the gun man!

Let me know if you ever want to get rd of it


On the gun, try mixing some oil with the grease when lubing the gun and fully grease the regulator. May be getting some shootdown because of that.


EDIT: nvm, you got that fixed. Props
