Question about Rock & Ice Climbing

Open Question

My spyder vs1 isnt firing. I hear the trigger firing, but the cocking pin and bolt arent moving.

My Spyder VS1 will not fire. It has semi auto, and three shot burst modes. I hear the trigger clicking and even took it apart to see if anything was moving, but the bolt and cocking pin will not move when i fire it. Plenty of Co2, but it always fires when gas is absent because it is an electronic trigger. I've stripped this thing down a dozen times but I don't see anything wrong with it. The only thing I can think of is the catch on the bottom tube isn't dropping far enough to let the bolt drop forward, or blow back. Any suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Daisy Red Ryder BB gun won't shoot

1) **** the gun and look through the hole in the top, half way down the barrel.

2) You should see a BB loaded into this area.
- if no bb is present and you can see a circular magnet, then it is not loading.

3) if the bb is present and does not exit the barrel when you fire the gun, then the bb is deformed and will require the rifle to be dissasembled and rodded through the back side, forcing the bad bb out of the way.

4) If no bb or magnet is present through the hole, call daisy for a replacement. This indicates the shot tube has moved and will no longer load.

SOURCE: I took apart a remington model 550-1 auto 22

Without seeing it, It's hard to tell, the closest I can come is the extractor plunger, or a part of the lifter.3 pins in there, your trigger plunger, and 2 pins on the safety.None are the shape you noted. Going by this drawing anyway. I didn't want to take my 550 apart to look for it, But I will if I have to. There is one more pin in the end of the tube magazine.

SOURCE: Paintballs popping before leaving barrel

Well, covering the holes shouldn't cause the paintballs to burst like that. I'd make sure there isn't some aberration in the barrel but that may be hard to tell. Clean it thoroughly and hold it up to a light and see if you can see anything in the reflections inside. You can try to get someone to hone the barrel just a bit to see if that helps get rid of any small aberration(s).

You can try another brand of paint. The one you're using may be a bit brittle, or just around a while and brittle.

Also, check your chrono speed. Make sure it's not cranked up so high it's busting the balls.

You might try another barrel, but would be nice to see if you can fix this one eh. I'd try some other paint first after cleaning the barrel thoroughly.

Good luck!

Mossberg 88. after closing the bolt, sometimes the gun will not fire.. It makes a dull thud.. the gun is old but only got it out of the box this year and has about 250 rounds shot thru it.. It seems if...

Weak main spring. It's the back-most pin in the trigger group. The spring isn't moving fast enough to get the hammer past the half **** notch on the hammer. It's catching the sear. In a pinch, you can just jerk the trigger extra stout, no hesitation. If you have a decent stone, you can stone off the half **** notch on the hammer. The half **** is when you pull the trigger group out of the gun and hold the hammer lightly as you pull the trigger. The spot where the hammer locks straight up and down is the half **** notch. Current hammers don't have the half ****'s simply not necessary. It was a redundant safety feature if the gun ever fell hard when cocked and chambered. It causes more probs than it fixes, though. You can replace your hammer with a new part....all of them fit including the Mossberg 500 lines....or you can stone the notch yourself....or you can replace the main spring. All will fix your prob.

Great gun, btw! I have one and love it!

I took out the bolt to clean it and now can't get it back in. It goes part way.

Not real sure which model you have, one named is a semi-auto, the other is a bolt action. So if you have a bolt action, to reinstall the bolt you have to have the safety off, pull the trigger as you insert the bolt back in place (be sure it is unloaded and pointed in a safe direction). If for some reason the bolt has un-cocked you must first **** the bolt. some models have the firing mech. in the bolt.

Installing a paintball bolt

Take off the quick disconnect to the back of the marker and pull out the bolt and the striker (note that the cocking rod might inhibit the bolt from coming out so pull or unscrew it in order to allow the assembly to come out easily) replace the old bolt with your new one and then replace the bolt and striker assembly into your marker (the hole in the bolt goes down) replace the back of the marker, and secure with the quick release pin. Below are the schematics to your marker, you might want to reference it if you get confused.
