Etha misfire problem (psst) sound

Alright, so I bought this Etha brand new in January and I have the springless poppit installed. I have about 5 cases through it and now it's starting to misfire every few shots. When I pull the trigger there is a "pssst" sound, which seems like it's coming from the bolt, then no shot. The next shot will fire then a few more then another misfire with a psst sound. I take the bolt out, clean it VERY good, lube her back up then it works like a champ and only happened once. So Im not sure if it is a lube problem such as the bolt is running dry (I dry fire a lot when I dont have paint to work on my semi) or my own error..just trying to give every bit of information to you guys, thanks!

It's not very accurate. I had the same situation a couple weeks ago. I had a battery that had 2 days of play on it do what your's did. Swapped a fresh battery in and had no problems the whole day.

Thats crazy I never would have guessed. I was thinking o-ring in the bolt but the battery fixed it so far. Thanks guys!
