Vanquish Problems - Could use some help.

Hey friends....
So this weekend at practice I aired up the 1.5 Vanquish and there was a leak that seemed to be coming from the solenoid area. I stripped it down and re-lubed everything I could. After some tweaking I got the leak to stop but apparently I got it to stop too well... The gun wouldn't cycle at all after that. So I took it home and did a more extensive maintenance on everything and now there is no leak but I'm experiencing serious shoot-down problems. Everything is at stock settings. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I'm new to the gun and still trying to figure it out.

Sounds like the hpr was set too high when you initially aired the marker up.

The shootdown you are experiencing could likely be caused by excessive lubricant in the marker.

Leak in solenoid area could be caused by bolt o-ring which could also be causing your other issues. Try changing the bolt o-ring it's size 016. Also like the guy above said, solenoid leak could be caused by pressure too high to make sure its below 200psi
