I have been trying to get my gun working correctly for a long long time and still no luck...Here's the story...
I live in Commerce, Michigan and I bought my gun about 3 or 4 months ago at Extreme Sports in Summit Mall. I am
NO noob and I have tried everything
(including over $500 in upgrades, making sure the gun is completely clean, oiling the gun, screwing with the regulator, taking it to the store for the supossid "EXPERTS" to fix, asking people how to fix it, trying new batteries all the time, and experimenting with my Egg II and my Ricochet Apache hoppers, cleaning the eye, taking the gun apart over and over, getting a new ball detent, experimenting with my Supa-Fly bolt and the stock bolt, trying different paintballs...etc) and my gun still has been nothing but problems (It chops like there is no tomorrow, it barely ever re-cocks, sometimes when I am walking the trigger the gripframe won't respond to some of the shots and most of the time I'm shooting slow so I can't be out-shooting the gun, and the gun can't even be mentioned in the same sentence with the word consistency. But with all of this in mind the two main problems I have are the re-cocking problems and the gun chopping)
It makes me mad to know that I was so unlucky to get such a defective gun, yet I searched for about 5 months on the Internet almost everyday to read the reviews of different guns and find the best one for around $300 and I chose this one and I still got screwed. My gun is in Alabama right now getting fixed (hopefully) by Dragun Empire/OGI.
I have taken my gun to the store where I brought it in countless times for testing and fixing and they always say "I didn't see any of the problems you were talking about" and I go home all excited that it works and I go buy a case of paintballs and i shoot it and it has all of the same problems.
Listed here are all of my upgrades and gun,
Blue to Black Fade TES $249
16 inch DYE Ultralight $89.99
PE 68ci 4500psi Fiber Wrapped Nitro tank $205.99
DYE Rhino Tank Cover $30

Check It Products Clamping Feed Neck $25
Macro Line Kit $14
Physco B Drop Forward w/guage $35
New Factory Ball Detent $Free
= $969.98 If I added correctly, lol
I know that my
gun is at OGI for repairs right now, but I would appreciate the help for future reference, to help others with the same problems, and I have a 5 man team and 3 of the people on my team have TES's and have the same problems and I do.
Can someone please help me with my gun and maybe give me some suggestions???
