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.

On webley 928. Breaking gun ( empty) open the extractors work fine. But following shooting and then breaking open the left extractor never works.


The barrel selector sounds like it is not engaging correctly to the switch over of trigger to firing pin for the second shot if you don't get it repaired it may get worse and go off when unexpected

Worn trigger valve orings will cause gun to fire twice, and /or attempting to single fire nail with bump-fire trigger. Easy test, look closely at firing pin under trigger. It should fit snuggly an not move from side to side in valve. If loose, replace valve. If your nailer has bump-fire trigger, do no attempt to place gun then fire one shot because the gun will most likely double fire. Good luck.

Nail gun leaking air at trigger


Worn orings always results in leaks/low power. On some nailers, better to replace whole trigger valve as seperate orings (very small) are hard to find and usually not in repair kit. Low power is usually worn driver oring. Easy test, remove nails and point nailer up then down again. If the driver seems to move up and down within the cylinder, time to replace oring/s. Look for repair/tune up kit that contains all the orings in the gun.

Blowing air through trigger area. Need rebuild kit? Longer version...started blowing air out of small hole in left side of casing. Leaked oil out of there as well but still worked fine. This has been...


If the trigger still works to fire the single shot, then the o-ring kit should be sufficient. If the trigger area continues to leak air, then the trigger should be replaced as well. Keep the gun well lubricated as well.

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.

My gun just beeps when i pull the trigger even when hooked up to hpa.battery is new.last time i used the gun just before it messed up i had it hooked to o2 and it would fire then beep ,i have a anti syphon...


You have probably messed up your solenoid, did you fire the marker straight up with the o2? I would make sure that all of the board settings are back to factory default especially the dwell and reattempt with compressed air. If the marker is still not firing get your hands on a new solenoid for it.

My nailer will shoot once but will not come back up for next shot until i shut the air off and seems to leak air out trigger


Be sure you have sufficient lubrication. You should be adding pneumatic oil to the gun periodically. Perhaps it is time to replace the o-rings (kit available for around $20). I have also needed to replace the trigger assembly once on my gun. This is about $40 for the replacement part.

IM250 Paslode straight brad nailer, fan wont shut off


My paselode was doing the same thing, and I followed all of the cleaning instructions, but the problem continued.

If it was left alone for a minute, it would fire again, so I removed the cover over the trigger assy, and checked the spark plug wire connection. The trigger came out, and during reassembly, I noticed that the electrical switch was hanging, and slowly pushing back out.

I cleaned and lightly spray/oiled the switch pin, and voila.........works like a charm.

Max 890s coil nailer does not advance nails when operated.


Make sure you have at least 100 psi available and I would pretty much drown the sliders and other moving parts in something like Marvel Mystery Oil.
