After my eXTCy has been idle for about 10-15 minutes, the bolt sticks after the first shot I fire/dry fire. I've messed with the settings a bit and it doesn't seem to go away unless my dwell is abnormally high (40 or so). Right now my dwell is set to 35 and my FSDO comp is set to 15.

Also, the manual is a bit confusing; it says that the stock setting for FSDO comp is 20 ms, but the setting only goes from 0 to 15 ms. Can anyone help?

Use a thinner lube, or less lube. Little = More with spoolies

That gun likes to be lubed lightly, but more often. You might be over lubing it. I like to do mine every other case, and just enough so the orings look wet. If you cake it in there it will gum it up, causing your problem.

Whenever you get first shot drop, the first step is always to remove the bolt and clean everything off. Lube will sometimes become sticky under certain circumstances, and it's always important to remove any old lube that may be causing problems before you re-lube it.

Next, I'd like you to reset your board to factory settings.

Re-lube your bolt using a very thin lubricant, and also replace your battery.

If all of that doesn't fix it, just come back and I'll get you shooting again :)

Cleaned and re-lubed with a thin amount of hatersauce, factory reset board, fresh battery. Set the dwell to 27ms for HPA as per the manual (it's factory set to use CO2). Sitting here indoors, gun won't cycle fully.

Ok, is it not cycling fully on the first shot, or is it not cycling fully at all?

Not cycling fully at all. Bolt moves all the way forward and all the way back, but doesn't dump enough air for the actual shot. The gun works alright with the dwell set at 35ms, however.

Sounds like a battery problem to me. Use fresh duracell or energiser only. Looks like your battery is on the fritz.

Lube bolt like this:

Use grease:

That actually worked! I think that lubing the bolt tip did the trick, I normally only lube the orings.

Gun has started to have the same problem again, even with new batteries. Any suggestions?
