Are you certain that the tank is full?

If so, you may have an air blockage somewhere in the gun starving the valve. Have you tried shooting paint? Does it fly a normal distance, or just kind of flop out the end of the barrel?

yeah, just look at the guage. if its a little under 1000psi (800psi to be specific) then you dont have enough operating pressure and your out. is this your first time using your HPA tank? has it worked good before? do you happen to have an expansion chamber?

yeah, your sear could be sticking, or not catching due to wear on it, or on the rear bolt. so look for signs of heavy wear on it, and keep plenty of oil on it, as well as the rear bolt. also, drop some oil in the ASA to encourage proper valve motion.

Your velocity could be too high, too low, or the sear is sticking. Also check to make sure the tank is screwed in fully.Somtimes the pin on the valve can be too long.

i have the same problem with my A5 dont bother replacing the rear bolt. I've gone thru 2 rear bolts and each only lasted 500-1000 paint balls. i think it might be the trigger assembely but dont know for sure.
