My paintball wont stop shooting but it has nothing to do with the co2 tank help?


The sear is not catching the bolt and resetting it properly. Or, there is not enough air pressure to push the bolt back to its original position. I would take it to a gunsmith. Parts fly out of a Tippmann if you open it up.

New Project Salvo. Second day tried to use it fires like it is on full auto for a second or two. Wont shoot as semi auto . It drains the CO2 quickly and sometimes the trigger gets stuck on full auto. ...


It's vary common for places to not fill Co2 tanks correctly and it sounds like this is your problem. Try having your tank filled in a different store, If this doesn't work you should exchange the gun at the store you bought it or call Tippmann, they have a excellent 2 year warranty.

I have response trigger on my a5 and only shots one shot at a time when pointing straight. When i raise the gun to the air and shot it response trigger works. What could be the problem?


If you are using CO2 it may be affecting the system. With a gun down straight, you could draw liquid CO2 into the internals. A siphon tube can be installed in a CO2 tank to stop or manage this. If you have access to someone's air tank, try using HPA (high pressure air aka nitrogen). If it fires fine with air you have deducted that the CO2 is to blame. Simple. Switch to air. It's better for the gun anyway! Now if the air didnt change anything I would think a component of the response trigger system is to blame. I am not familiar with the response trigger( I use E-grips) but I would think that a part that may slide or move forward or bak when you lift the gun up would be to blame. Most local shops should be able to diagnose the problem. I did find an installation video by Tippmann on youtube.
Here is a link.

Just bought a tippmann 98 act took it home went to test and it still broke like everyother ball. Is it the balls or possibily to much veloicity? does it make a difference co2 or compressed air?


The velocity adjustment is probably way too high.
This causes too much propellant to enter the firing chamber.
There should be an Allen screw on the side of the gun where
you can adjust the velocity. Try backing the screw out a turn and see what happens.
Here is your owners manual to help you.

CO2 is very hard on O-rings so if you can use air you are better off.
I use an A-5, Autocockers, Smart Parts Ions and more.

Check the O rings on the big metal striker, make sure that you have the spring on the back (where the stock would have went) in the right hole on the back plate. Make sure that your velocity is set to a reasonable level.

Basically speaking, air is air. Now it's the pressure that's the concern. co2 bottles use a regular valve that has a pin in it and opens to allow the gas through. High Pressure Air - HPA is the same concept but since the pressure with co2 is built up by expanding gas, HPA has to do it with pressure only. So the tank is pressurized a LOT higher than co2, but there's a regulator on the tank valve to bring the working pressure into the marker to the proper level.

So yes, you can use "air", but you need to make sure it has the right output for your marker. (i.e. not a low pressure HPA valve.).

You'll have the same problem though, getting someone to fill the bottle. Check with your local airsmith and paintball fields and stores. If they have co2 they would have HPA, but some do only deal with HPA since it's "easier" in some cases.

You may have to check around. Sometimes hardware stores have a small section in back, or you can check with the paintball places around to see if anyone in your area is equipped. Some teams have their own tanks, especially if there's not a place to get fills locally.

There's also online communities like Brigade and various paintball sites where you can check around for other players. Someone may have a co2 fill tank, a scuba tank for HPA, or a group that gets tanks together to make a run and get them filled somewhere.

Good luck!

Play hard, play safe, play with honor!

In cold weather it wont fire, it acts like its running out of co2 it goes full auto.


make sure you replace all of the internal o-rings for commpression. one may be worn slightly and contracts when cold allowing gas to escape
