Make sure your battery is new. It doesn't take a lot of voltage drop to affect performance.

Make sure your marker is clean, and properly lubed with a quality oil make for paintball.

Make sure your board connections are secure. You can change modes on the e-trigger yes? Go through them and fire a few times in each to ensure it's changing.

Make sure you have a full tank of air while your testing to make sure this isn't a problem as well, or causing your issues.

Good luck!

Gun fires 2 or 3 naiks everytime I pull trigger


Most nailers have two types of triggers available. One is a bump fire and the second is single shot that is activated by releasing the trigger, placing the contact foot against the work, then depress trigger. Bump fire trigger May fire two nails if you place then depress. Check your parts manual to determine which trigger is installed. (Some brands have built-in switch to activate bump) good luck

Pneumatic stapler trigger stuck


The click sound indicates that the headvalve opened to fire piston down the barrel, however piston is already down or is stuck in-place. If the piston/driver is not broken or stuck, push piston to top of cylinder to reset. If only one shot and piston stays down, most likely the check band is broken. Check band is on the outside of cylinder (lower part) is is usually an oring or band of rubber covering small holes drilled into cylinder. Check valve /band is what causes the piston to return to top. If check band is good, most likely piston is bent or oring is too tight. If you open the gun, lube all parts with white grease or silicone paste lube. Good luck

How does the framing nailer work with a black button grey button


Dewalt has two triggers available for their framing nailer. The black trigger (390746-00) is a bump style trigger. While holding the trigger, you will be able to fire a nail by pressing nose against work. This trigger is preferred by most framers because it is much faster. Gray trigger will only allow one nail to be fired. Bumping will not work with the gray trigger. With trigger released, you must place the nose against work then pull trigger to fire. To fire next round, you must release trigger, pull gun off the work, again place nose against work then press trigger. Check dewalt web site for recall information. Some dewalt framers have been recalled for faulty trigger. Good luck with your projects.

I **** it back and then hit the trigger and it won't fire... it rotates the barrel and after about a minute or so of pulling the trigger rapidly it will fire. i want to be able to shoot normally and i did...


The factory must have left out a certain spring I could only explain to you if you've modded it.

Well, I'm going to explain anyway-

When you pull the trigger there is a mechanism is triggers that releases the plunger system, therefore compressing the air and firing the dart out of the turret. The factory (as I said before) left out the spring that makes the part move up or down as the trigger is operated, therefore making the gun malfunction.

My best suggestion- get a spring and add it in (if this is the case). Open up the shells/casing of the gun by unscrewing it apart and find the orange part next to the trigger.

Please email me at dluzzio@gmail.com a picture of the inside of your gun so I can analyze it.

If all else fails, take it back to the store.

I have an a5 paintball gun with electronic trigger, when i hook it to air and pull the trigger, the hopper is not moving!!!


On the A5 the hopper or Cyclone feed is powered thru a small tube on the feeder side
of the gun. Make sure that tube is connected and if so, pull it off and see if air is flowing
thru it when you pull the trigger. If not, the internal passage may be blocked. Tear down
the gun and clean out the obstruction. If there is a pulse of air coming out the tube when firing
then it may be the Cyclone feed mechanism. Just unscrew the 3 phillips head bolts
under the Cyclone and observe the air driven gear drive. Air up the marker and see
what is moving or not moving. Complete replacement upgrade Cyclone gear drives
are available that say they increase performance if you cant get it moving.

Dewalt angled finish nailer, just got, when nose is depressed and trigger pulled, just sound of air releasing, wont fire..... need trigger assembly?


if air is released when the trigger is pulled then stops when the trigger is released , then the trigger is doing its job. its probably a firing valve issue. four screws will take off the top cap of the gun the firing valve is inside of the cap . first check to see if the gun has enough oil( unless its an oil less gun) if its dry then grease or oil all of the orings, if this dose not work check to see if any of the orings or plastic parts need replacing. pls rate this answer...;tks

How do you disengage the trigger, hammer. withour dry firing


If you are asking what I think you are, pull and hold the hammer back with your thumb (it is spring loaded so don't let it slip), squeeze the trigger and hold it depressed, "Slowly" EASE the hammer forward until it is back to it's original position, then release the trigger. I hope this answered your question.

PORTER CABLE FR350 FRAMING NAILER RAPID FIRES


I have seen this problem on several brands of nailers. The solution in most cases was to make sure headvalve orings are sealing correctly. Here is a simple test. Remove the head and place on workbench with gasket surface facing up. Push headvalve all the way in with your thumbs then cover the vent hole with finger and release thumb pressure to headvalve. Vacuum should keep headvalve down untill you release finger at vent-hole. If vacuum does not hold, remove headvalve and examine surfaces for fine scratches and/ or make sure of correct size orings (headvalve should be very snug). Remove scratches with extra fine paper (300-400 grit). If headvalve holds, remove headvalve piston and piston stop. With headvalve spring removed, push piston stop into headvalve and make sure that the piston stop fits snuggly into piston. Also make sure piston stop is not damaged or cracked. A loose fitting piston stop will cause multi-fire. Replace as necessary. Upon re-assembly, lube all rubber parts with plenty of silicone lube (not oil, wipe clean all parts before lubing). Silicone paste/grease is sold at Lowes in the plumbing department (Danco Brand). Good luck and email if you have other questions about this gun.

Nail Gun Problem


Professional-grade varieties are automatic, and fire a nail directly upon pulling the trigger. A semi-automatic nail gun is more appropriate for beginners, since it requires a two step process: pull the trigger and then tap the barrel against the wood. This safety feature protects the user from accidentally firing a nail gun and injuring himself or others.
