FIXED IT.. with this

So I'm guessing this is boltstick. A friend of mine gave the gun to me a couple of days ago after trying for months to get it working. He never did. 

Fresh Battery CHECK

Max Dwell CHECK

Bolt lubed (DOW55) CHECK
Shim stack correct CHECK
I put the bolt in forward position before airup CHECK
Enough HPR pressure CHECK
Enough pressure in tank CHECK

 

Here's a video

Avoid Dow 55 on spools, especially blow-forwards like the Threshold. It's thicker, and can swell o-rings. You'll want to use Dow 33 or one of the many paintball derivatives of Dow 33.

Allright, the problem existed before I lubed it though.

possibly to much lube, your settings are still out of whack. 

Make sure it's lightly lubed not overly lubed. Also make sure all the o-rings are in working order and one hasn't be torn.

Cleaned of the DOW, and put a SLIGHT coat of Dye Slick on the bolt. I also replaced the inner O-ring, it had some wear. Still, it seems to stick like hell. As you saw in the video, it easily shoots back after airup, but nothing gets the bolt forward. 

Im suspecting this has nothing to do with lube..

The inner o-ring, as in the bolt plug o-ring?
