Question about Tippmann 98 Custom Act Paintball Gun
First make sure your marker has been fully cleaned out (No paint in the marker).
Always follow the flow of air when a problem like this arises.
Make sure their is nothing blocking the ASA (Where your tank screws into the gun)
If you have a regulator make sure you are not running any lower than 800 PSI, if you have a gas through grip then disregard this step.
First check your hammer o-ring, if it is broken you need to replace it and oil it, if not just oil it. This is the most common reason you would have this problem.
If you did not solve your problem yet than check your sear which holds back the hammer. If it is rounded then the bolt will skip instead of re-cocking the gun. Make sure it is still sharp, if this is your problem you can buy a new sear or file the one you have.

I always replace all o rings when even one fails, I'm sure that's your problem, DO NOT FILE any part of your paint guns machined parts, that stuff needs to be precise and the human eye cannot compete with laser guided presses or cutters... I have watched buddys ruin high end Angels & Auto cockers by trying to file parts into working order.

You need to go to a tippmann website and contact their repair department and ask for a replacement part 02-35. most of the time that or part number TA02011 the rear bolt. Look at the rear bolt on the back bottom is a area where the sear stop the bolt from going forward most of the time that wears down after a lot of use. Check both parts to see if they are in good condition. Replace what is bad most of the time is the rear bolt that is going bad.
Some people just re grind that edge down to a nice 90 degrees. But if this is done wrong you can damage the bolt.
Another tip is to put a few drops of tri flow in the ASA before you attach the tank this will lube the marker up and I do this at the field I manage on all of our rentals and makes the markers last longer. You can find tri Flow at any auto stores.

**** it and that should stop.
If that persists make sure you have cleaned the marker and used a good paintball oil to lubricate the internals.
At the next level you could have a o-ring that's old, brittle, broken and now is leaking by. Your local airsmith should be able to provide the necessary part(s) or fix it in short order for you.
Play hard, play safe, play with honor!
