i have used a tippman 98 & a5 thay worked quite well concedering i havent used my bt-16 Tactial yet
The ajustable stock
The gun looks and feels very authintic
I just literally bought my BT-16 Tact yesterday so I havenít used it at all (I fired a few blanks thru it but thatís it) and it was working fine from what I could tell then I noticed that the fore stock was loose as well as the top rail and the stock was a tad shaky also. So this morning I took the sight/handle off to tighten the rail low and behold my bolt won't go all the way back or forward dose any body know what i may have done? over all the gun is great!
I would to see if the screws that hold the sight rail on have protruded into where the bold is. You may have to tear down the marker to see if this is happening. If so then you'll need to have the screws for the sight rail cut shorter. If you have a dremel you can do it yourself otherwise I would recommend you go to a hardware store, they'll have tools to cut srews/bolts. As far as the rest being loose, I know that you can tighten the barrel and then you can readjust the front sight rail. To test I would take off the back sight rail and see if that solves the bolts not wanting to move. If not then you may have something assembled incorrectly. Look in your manual it has a blow apart diagram and that should tell you how it goes back together. If you can not figure it out, take it to the nearest pro shop and they will be able to help you get it back together. Also if you know anyone that has an A5, the internals are almost the same. Only difference is that the BT cocking mechanism is like a M16 where as the A5 is on the left side of the marker.
if you took off the top of the gun and removed that metal bridge looking thing that holds the bolt together, then the front bolt may have turned which covers up the hole that the metal piece goes into. to fix it take off the barrell and top plate. put tape on the end of a small stick like a pencil and stick it into the place where the barrell screws in until it stops. then use a flashlite to look in the top of the gun. twist the pencil until the hole reappears on the top of the front bolt and re-insert the the metal piece the rubber thing and the t- bolt and it should work. you have to screw the velocity adjuster all the way in to free the bolt to turn. i think this may be what u have to do , the same thing happend to me.
Yeah what ryan said!!!! ha just kiddin! i also have had the same problem with my old 16 but it can be just a matter of makeing sure that hammer and bolt rod are in holes before closeing top site rail back on , or maybe rail screws are to long, try putting one or two small washers ontop of rail before slapping it back on if you dont feel cozy using a dremmel!
