alright, the other day i was playing speedball, and i was getting my gun going pretty fast. But after a short time the rear cocking bolt wouldnt cock back all the way(by itself). i could fix it by just pulling it back a little bit, but what can i get so that this wont keep happening? it happened 5 times in one game already.

Some times pieces of shell from a broken ball can get in there and stop it up. Recock pressure may be a problem if your tank is getting low. Also, it sounds really simple and I don't want to insult you but, make sure the bolt is lubed up pretty good before you play. Some of these are what I have found makes a bolt malfunction.
Lady... I'm afraid I'm gonna have to ask you to leave the store.

This is a pretty common problem. Sometimes the drive and sear spring are worn out, or your gun isn't properly lubricated. But most often it is the user shooting fast with CO2, causing the gun to "freeze up" and not recock. Were you using CO2?
