Tippmann SL-68 Original Gurus... I need a little help.

Ok, so I picked up an original Tippmann SL-68. I bought a new style bolt and want to adapt it to the old gun. The only difference that I can see between the two is the longer shank on the back. I filed that down, but when I put it in the gun, it won't cock. Any thoughts? I can provide pics if necessary.

Thanks.

have you aired it up to see if it will cock? Won't cock without air. Also check your hammer sear spring.

What I should of said is, the pump handle won't go all the way back. The originals actually do pump if they aren't aired up, well mine does at least...

Dang those look close! If you put the spring on the bolt, and push the hammer and bolt together, does the sear catch the bolt?
Does the bolt fit over the power tube? I'll check tonight, but I think the bolt should slide freely over the power tube.
Also, if you remove the two set screws on the sides of the receiver, you can tap the valve out and see how it all goes together. I can understand your frustration, the bolts look identical! (FYI: Mine won't cock without air. I thought it was broken until I aired it up. )

Checked this morning and found the bolt tube will slide over the power tube. I've seen the tubes bent before. Maybe...
