Ego 6 problems....

Ok my teammate has a ego 6 that we cannot get to work for some reason. We read and tried everything we could. We just replaced all the o rings. Lubed everything. So now the problem.

Every time we air the gun up it does one of two things or both. First is we are getting a leak from the grip frame, second is that with the first few shots the balls just roll out of the barrel. We are out of ideas of how to fix it. Anny suggestions? Thanks

Check your QEVs, HPR and LPR pistons. Also if you have the stock 06 reg, make sure the shims are stacked properly. Also make sure there is no damage to the solenoid from over-tightening the grip screws.

Ball rolling out likely means you need to replace your detents

its leaking from the solenoid. does it mean a bad solenid? or is there something I am missing, I took the lpr and hpr apart and cleaned and lubed them but still no luck. this is beyond me.

Clean and lube the oring inside the solenoid, as well as the 3 manifold orings.

If the back section of the solenoid has holes in it...you might as well chalk that up as dead. It sounds like a weak coil either way.

On the off chance the soleniod still works fine...check the LPR piston to make sure that the reg seal is still in the end of the piston and is not damaged. If it is damaged...you'll have to replace the piston. The solenoid receives air pressure from the LPR regulator...so if there is too much pressure from the LPR...it will be vented by the solenoid manifold.
