Yes it sounds like an overpressure problem still to me

Did you check the hpr piston and look at the end seal on that? It is the same as the lpr piston on the end of the shaft?

How does the hpr piston o ring look? When in doubt take it out... and replace it

How do the small pair of o rings look on the bottom half of the hpr? on inside the body and the others on the adjuster screw?

How does the lpr piston o ring look?

I had a hard time with mine as I had a bad noid and bad ram o rings at the same time. So I would put the spool in the correct way and the bolt would shoot forward making me think I had the spool in wrong when it was the ram o rings that were making the bolt move forward. Only took me a month the figure that one out.... so yes replace and lube the ram o rings. Like you if I put the spool in the other way the ram would stay back but the noid would leak.

thanks, i think i'll try the rammer orings first, im less inclined to believe the overpressuring, b/c i turned down the lpr alll the way until i couldnt hear a leak, but it was so low that it wouldn't cycle

The hole at the end is a relief hole.

If it is the small hole at the back of the noid there is a good chance you are getting to much pressure to the noid. Most of the time this is caused by an lpr issue, read the above post a few times and check everything. Number 1 would be the end seal at the tip of the lpr piston, if it is questionable in any way replace the piston. I know it's big cash but the comprehensive parts kit is a wise place to spend some cash. It has a new piston in the kit as well as every wear item on the marker. Also if the ram is shooting forward most of the time it is caused by the front two o rings on the ram being bad. Replace all the ram o rings as well as the ram cap o ring.

Also to this day people are 50-50 on if the manual is correct on which end of the spool goes in first on the noid. After you check the lpr, and swap the ram o rings if the problem is the same you may try turning the spool around 180 and see if that fixes the problem

the ram shooting forward isn't the problem, that just happens when i plug the hole to see what happens.
Is this the part on the lpr i'm looking for?
i've also tried both ways of inserting the spool, im not sure which way i put it in but it works, and the other just makes the ram shoot forward, so i'm sure its in there right


it's number three on my list above the small black or white plug seal at the end of the lpr piston that points at the body of the marker. Also if you had bad ram o rings the bolt would push forward and stay forward all the time. The fact that it pushes forward does not mean the noid is correct or incorrect. I would start with fresh ram o rings with the spool like you have it and see what you get. If it still leaks out the relief in the noid then try and flip the spool and see what you get.

alright, my lpr is fine, and my rammer isnt the problem, it only does funny things when i mess with the gun, when i leave things be everything works, gun cycles, ramm is back, shoots, everything, it just leaks.
would it still be worth trying to replace the rammer o-rings? again i stress the bolt and rammer are in the correct position, it just did that when i experimented with taping the relief hole, i took the tape off and it worked fine, just a slow leak.
ive also set the hpr and lpr to where they should be, checked every other o-ring on the gun, reset the board, new battery, i am almost sure its an overpressure problem, or something inside the solenoid that is leaking.

man, i totally forgot about this thread, thanks for the info mongoman.
currently, i managed to half fix the problem, i ended up relubing the spool, put it back in and now the gun actually cycles, no problems there. However, it does still leak, it is from the tiny hole at the back of the 'noid and nowhere else. I decided to experiment, and i covered the hole with a small piece of tape, and when i aired it up the rammer would shoot forwards, i have no idea what is up with that, so i took off the tape and the bolt went right back to normal, i even just played with it by covering the hole with my finger and the bolt would shoot forwards when i did, went back when i let go. Does anybody know what this hole is even for? Maybe if somebody with a working marker could just tape the hole to see what happens in a normal marker?, i'm very curious to see what happens, i don't think it should break anything.

what do you want me to take a pic of? im not sure what part you were talking about, I am pretty sure my problem has something to do with the solenoid spool being unlubed, the rammer o-rings wouldnt suddenly blow in a period of 8 hours of unuse, the microline looks fine, i didnt touch it either, and the solenoid still clicks, it used to shoot (i played a game with it like this) its just gotten worse, and wont cycle anymore. my guess is that the spool in the solenoid just will not move very well when unlubricated
