Already tried a new name brand battery. K? K.
So I bought this. I got it in, put a couple balls through it, didn't chrono it, but it fired fine. Decided to go the Bob Long method of setting the LPR, and backed both regs all the way out. I gave it a little in the HPR, and started on the LPR, firing and turning the screw. The gun will not fully cycle. Eventually I'll get to a point where the bolt will have some movement, but it will not activate the poppet, even when the gauge reads in excess of 120 psi. If I get the gun to about 80-90 psi, kill the air at the ASA, then turn air back on, the LPR will almost immediately over pressurize and the solenoid vents.
I've taken the LPR apart, cleaned off the o rings, and relubed them with Dow 55, and still no dice. I've only stopped short of replacing the o rings, and that's because I don't have the needed ones on hand.
So um, any assistance? I think I'm just going to call BLAST and have them fix the thing, or bring it to the guy at my field and have him try his hand. Because I'm at a complete loss.
Mechanical/pneumatic problems aside, this thing is MINT. There are like 3 dings on the tip of the barrel, and a couple where the grip frame meets the body, but otherwise, it looks as if this was pulled straight out of the box. I'll feel bad playing with it, but I don't buy things. To sit down and collect dust.
