I got my hands on an AIM crow cocker from Craigslist. Cosmetically it is absolutely flawless. I'd make the argument that it's never been shot.
Here's whats going on:
Airing the gun up will blow the hoses off the 3-way. The hoses it came with were hard and junk so I tossed them.
My Solutions so far:
tried backing the HPR and LPR all the way out, the hoses didn't blow, but the 3way leaks like crazy.
tried replacing LPR with a known working one - same symptoms
3 way leaks
my solutions so far:
replaced orings and lubed with dow 33
gun will not cycle (pull trigger and the ram doesnt move.
My solutions so far:
actuate 3 way by hand
swap hose position
the best I've gotten out of it so far is the 3 way almost all the way pulled back out of the housing and the ram will acuate open, but cannot get it to close
Some trouble shooting i've tried:
pull the hoses off the 3-way and actuate the ram by hand - pressure and airflow feels right.
swapped to a slider frame for a longer trigger pull
I've been teching cockers for years and have had some tough ones, but I've never felt this defeated.
Any input or ideas is appreciated!
for the sake of it, here's a picture of the gun
