So I went to shoot my mini today but it was only firing like every other or every 3rd shot but the air was still going just no ball was going... so i took off the hopper and looked at the bolt problem is when i shoot it it doesn't return all the way in so it's in the breach therefor no balls can get into place... I tried lubing it didn't help and Idk what to do..

Check all bolt o rings and replace if they are worn

Yeah I checked the spring and how exactly do I tell if the O-Rings are worn (I doubt they are only shot like 10 cases or so out of it though)

Might seem simple but try a new battery. Not one you find in a drawer lol.

Is air leaking from anywhere at any point during the firing cycle?

Another thing I can think of is resetting the board. What does the pressure read on the gauge?

The bolt returning fully isn't really an issue with a battery or board, it's completely up to the bolt spring to do that.

 

Do you have the stock bolt? When you move the bolt back and forth on the bolt guide by hand, does it feel hard to move, or does it slide smoothly? Also, does the bolt spring look bent at all?
