Major air leak
So I hadn't touched my 2005 freestyle for over a year and a friend of mine and I decided we wanted to go paintballing again. I cleaned out the entire gun and lubed it up, but when i hooked up the air it went straight out the barrel in a constant flow. I could adjust how fast it would go with the reg. Any idea what this is?
I'm not familiar with ICD guns at all.... but if it's leaking down the barrel and it's a poppet gun (Mini's/Spyders), it's probably your cup seal. This is the part that the rammer/striker/hammer slams against to allow air to flow into the valve. This is really cheap to replace.
If it's a spool-valve gun (like Proto/Dye/DP guns) then it is more than likely a valve o-ring or your solenoid. Take your gun apart, look at all the o-rings on the bolt and check to see if there are ANY nicks/cracks/scratches on them. If there is, make sure you replace the affected o-ring(s). If there is nothing, lower your LPR as much as possible, re-oil the gun, re-assemble, and shoot it over the chrono. If you can't get up to a reasonable velocity without it leaking, it's likely your 'noid. There are some o-rings you could replace in the 'noid that might fix your problem, but unfortunately I've shot a blow-black my entire life, so that's where my advice ends :P
I imagine an ICD owner could help you out a little better.
