Epiphany problem, need help fast

I gas up the marker, make sure the pressure is some where between 250 and 280psi, and then pull the trigger. It does a little puff puff, but nothing close to being able to fire a paintball. After I do it too many times, it stops trying to fire all together. I have reset the dwell and rof, so I don't think it is that. I took a part and cleaned the bolt and re greased it. Any ideas?

Replace the battery with a brand new brand name battery (duracell, energizer).

In my experience with SP guns, I found that replacing the orings on the bolt helped immensely.

Just give it to Old Blackrain, I'll take it off your hands. HMMMMMMMMMM Isn't this gun just an ION or is it different?

Later,

Epiphanies are basically the factory upgraded ion.

Different frame, different body, firing can with interchangeable inserts to adjust operating pressure, firebolt came stock, higher psi rated board, bearing and magnetic return trigger. And they operate at pressures up to 280psi.

They ended up being heavier due to the magnesium alloy that the frame and body is made from. Added weight made them more stylish and had the appearance of a smoother shot due to the added weight.

Thank you for the info. I did not know that. I thought the bodies were plastic.

Thanks,
