Blazer Problem

I got my new blazer about 3 months ago and unfortunately the snow here has kept me from using it. I have been dry firing it to get used to it and I've noticed something. About 1 out of every 10 shots, the bolt with cycle but no air will come out. After it does it once, it will happen a few more times after that. My friend said I was "short stroking" but it does it even when I'm going slow and concentrating on doing complete pulls and releases. Anything I can do or adjust to stop this?

I used my blazer on the field the first time yesterday. I ran into the same somewhat similar problem. First thing to do is make sure your ram bushing is tight. Sometimes they back out a bit after firing. If it backs out you will lose cocking pressure and the marker will not cock all the way. It will cycle the bolt but not cock the hammer. If the ram bushing is tight check your manual on setting the Rock LPR. Make sure your Rock is properly adjusted.

Then just work on the trigger pull.

Short stroking can happen if you don't release the trigger all the way. I could shoot mine no problem off field but when I was in game the adrenaline caused me to pay less attention to how I was shooting. It's something you have to work on until it becomes second nature.

Glenn suggests cycling one full tank through the marker to get used to a mechanical 2-stage trigger like the Blazer.

My last 2 games I didn't short stroke at all. And I could shoot the Blazer as quickly and accurately as any other paintball marker I've ever shot. It takes a little work, but the rewards of knowing how to use a great piece of equipment are worth it.

Tighten your rock a LITTLE more. I had the same problem and as the above poster said, get used to the trigger.

Is the blazer used or New because if it is used, you might need a new sear.

Thanks for the replies. It is brand new directly from Palmers so I think that rules out the sear. I'll try out your suggestions tommorrow.

Then It is most likely the rock. Just turn it down abit and cycle it about 10 times and keep messing with the rock until it is nice to you.

So I should turn "down" the rock. What did u mean by "tighten the rock a little"?

If all else fails, Read the "Regulator adjustments" section of the manual that came with the gun.
