minion problem

i just got my minion and threw on a tank to test fire it and some wierd crap started to happen. like it would fire a shot or two normally then there would like a pfft of air(when this happenes the bolt barley moves at all, deff not a full cycle.). After a while of this happening i would let it sit for a min or two try it again and same thing would happen. i thought it was the gun so i tried my other pm6, same thing. i have no idea what is happening here... ideas?

well if its happening on both guns then its not a minion problem... its your tank. I'm not sure but is it out of air? Thats what I'm thinking the problem is and if it isn't try a different tank if you have one.

sounds more like dead batteries. they arent supplying enough electricity to effectively charge the solenoid on each pull, and need to build up enough charge to fire, which is why the shots are random. always check the batts first.

If the batteries are good and there is alot of air in the tank, try increasing the dwell.

Well, its probably the tank if you ask me. You probably just have low air 'cause if it was a battery problem, you probably wouldn't get any paintball to go over 20 feet of distance. But... thats just MY opinion.
