Demon Shoots fine when it wants to.

Hi just got this 2012 Demon in a Trade.

Well it was great when I when to the chrono station. Very Consistent in velocity. Put two pods through it. Then hit the field and well the first shots were okay the rest were right in front of me. Check out the video. Funny thing is when I pull the bolt out and put it back in it works fine again. I did that 3 times today then gave up and used my friends G6R.
Its the QEV huh? I ordered one from Dead box sports on Wednesday in anticipation of the QEV failure like everyone has been having.

Dont know if it is the qev, at a guess i would have said it was bolt stick (im no vanguard tech). Are you using dow 55? Whats the dwell set at? X

Hmmmm

That doesnt look right. So it was chrono'd ok but on field it got worse?
As Teddy said, what is the dwell? I'd set it to around 16.5/17. Bottle screwed in ok?
What lube? Dow55 is recommended, but Monkey Poo is fine for me too.
I assume no leaks?
COULD be the diaphragm - but rule out others first. Usually diaphragm goes "puff".

I had some similar things happen to mine: Mine didnt cycle properly at-first, but its because the battery needed to fully charge to properly activate the solenoid. Did you charge your battery completely? Did you mess with any settings? Bolt stick possibly? Check O-rings.

Make sure you tighten the back cap. I had a similar issue because I was only "hand tightening" the back cap.

Don't know I need to blow like a case on it before I know its fully working. The only other thing I need to do is raise the dwell to like 17 or something. Shoot a couple pods through it and let it sit and then try again. Atleast that's how the problem was happening. Could be bolt stick I guess or the QEV works when it wants to when I degas the marker and pull the bolt out. Another thing too is my marker dosent have a serial number is says (unset) or something

Everything is Screwed on tight the Can to the back cap and the Back to the marker. I dont know if I want to risk it for the tournament this weekend.

Check to see if the QEV cap has any metal shavings in it choking the flow. I've seen that before. Oh, and your QEV is on its way.

You should always have backup for any tournament anyway.......it's never a bad idea. I'd rather see you get it going though.
