Bob Long Hybrid Mummy Issue

My buddy has a Bob Long Hybrid Mummy he bought about a week ago. The marker is in perfect condition except for a small issue he's having with possibly the eyes, dwell or bolt. The marker will fire paint normally with the eyes off at full pressure but when the eyes are turned on, the marker won't shoot at full pressure every time, will drop off every two or three shots and will occasionally load two balls. He's concerned that it's somehow the eye's issue that's affecting the marker. He's removed the eyes many times and cleaned them, but they still show that all four are blocked. I don't know, does anyone have any suggestions? He doesn't want to have buy new ones...

You might get a little bit more experienced help in the Bob Long forum

What's your pressures and dwell at?

Loading two balls either means your detents are bad (or missing the spring) or your hopper has to much tension on the stack. Check for pinched wires on the writing harness going to the eyes.

Thanks for the replies everyone. We reset the board to stock dwell, I can't find what it is for certain. What I mean by not shooting at full pressure is when the eyes are off it shoots around 290 but with eyes on, the ball only makes it about 30 feet. I'll try to clean the eyes and look for pinched wires. Please excuse my lack of knowledge, I'm only a beginner haha

The eyes on or off should not effect the marker like that.

I take it with the eyes off you still have a paintball in the breach and are firing over a chromo?

sounds more like a pressure or lube issue, like its not fully cycling.

have you changed the battery to a fresh name brand one? low batteries can all sorts of problems. usually eye malfunctions and poor cycling.

frech lube never hurts either. make sure its dow55 for a marq (the mummy is a marq). once they are set up properly marqs are pretty hassle free and reliable.

Wow, I didn't even think to change the battery. I'll do that and check it out. If that doesn't work I'll pick up some dow55 and lube it up. Thanks for the help

whenever your gun is acting up the first thing you should do is always change the battery. its the easiest and fastest thing to replace. and yes you definately to get some dow55. dow55 swells o-rings unlike dow33 (hatersauce, sl33k, dye lube, eclipse, etc.) and bob long designs his guns with that in mind, generally they will tend to leak with 33 in them. the plus side is its much thicker than 33 and stays in place much longer. marqs can easily go 10 cases without needing to be re-lubed compared to 1-2 for a shocker/luxe/dm.

the simplest thing that will effect a marq or just about any gun in this manner is a weak battery.. change it and report back if that doesn't fix this issue pm me i have a few more that are a little more complicated and easier to just tell in a pm... if it is having inconsistent shots check the rear transfer slot (hole at the back of the gun under the bolt system) for oring debris

I swapped out the battery and it solved the issue. I didn't realize a dead battery could affect a marker in this way. Thanks for all the help guys, really appreciate it.

Like previously stated the Bob Long forum is perfect for this specific gun. They have many BL techs in the group.

Yeah, the gun is mine. It was turning on and showing the green flash for good battery, but it was malfunctioning. Now it works great, except for I have a leak and I'm preeeetty sure my ASA is terrible. Any suggestions on a better one for a bob long?
