Ego trouble.. HELP

So the other day, me and my team were practicing like we normally do every Tuesday and while we happen to be playing scrims I took a nasty dive into the snake trying to avoid a lane. When I managed to position my self to take a shot at the opposing team my gun had severe drop off and up until this day the problems still consists. I also completely took the gun apart and i didn't see any broken o-rings. It's an ego 8 and I know if i break it I'm kind of screwed, but if you have any relatively useful information about what could possibly be wrong with it please feel free to leave a comment.

Thanks nation!

Did you check your QEV diaphragms?

Yeah they seem'd to be fine. I'm totally puzzled.

^Didn't think of that.^ The impact could have messed up something in the ASA internally and is starving the gun. I would go ahead and strip the gun from top to bottom. Egos and Eteks are pretty simple to figure out. Most of the time it's something simple like an oring, battery, pinched/clogged/loose hose/barb, or the occasional bad QEV diaphragm (in guns containing them).

I would rebuild your HPR and LPR regs and replace your battery with a new name brand battery, such as Energy Paintball, Energizer or Duracell. Also if that doesn't work you may need to take apart your solenoid and possibly change the o-rings on the solenoid spool and lube them lightly.

Was just getting ready to suggest checking the solenoid and spool. Wouldn't hurt to reset the gun to factory settings the tune from scratch.
