I'd say just take out the cup seal, make sure that and the valve are clean, and put it back in. That entails taking off the pump handle, unscrewing the pump guide rod, and taking out the valve spring and cup seal.

Anti. That Was the issue I was talking to you about when I sold it to you. If you get lube on the cup-Seal (the little plastic washer shaped like a 3D " X "
air will vent through the system and blow out your barrel. )

You gotta pull off the pump handle, remove the internals and get right down to the inside. That is where the cupseal is. Just wipe it off with a Micro fiber to remove any oil or lube on it. And then assemble it back together again. I know your basic Paintball instincts will tell you to lube the O-rings in the bottom tube of the Sniper, But if you do. use a small amount. that's really all you need. thats what causes the leak in the first place is over lubing the bottom tube or the HPR, then when it blows through the system it gets on the Cup-seal.

(Hint, using a Swab works well to " Push out" the internals. rather then fighting your way through, You can also use an Allen key down the slot where the Bolt sits (by looking directly down on it) to help slide it out or put it back in, keeping it in position.


Fuck im good. I never even got to shot it and hawt fucking damn im a master tech already.

hey guys, my friend has a problem with his empire sniper. He says that he can get it to chrono at a normal velocity but after about 10 shots it lowers to around 200. What I think is happening is the reg screw is backing out since it was as loose as it could get. Any other ideas or anyone else have this problem?

The balls are halfway down the barrel by the time he pulls the trigger. Use a smaller bore.

hehe... balls.

I don't think that's it, it will work fine for the first few shots but then every shot after that is at a lower velocity.

I think I'm going to go with my initial thought, the reg screw is coming unscrewed. Anybody know how to keep it from unscrewing itself? I may just call up empire if I can't figure it out.

I'm not sure if that would be a good idea I guess blue would work. I'll call empire tomorrow and see if they know whats up.

Of the possible bolts that could become loose on a marker, I would pin the velocity adjusting bolt to be one of the last ones.

Does anyone have a picture of an old-school Revvy on an empire sniper? I want to see what it looks like.
