The first thing to do is make sure your valve bolts are both there and tight enough. If they are loose just snug them in, apply Loctite if you can. Be very carefull not to overtighten and strip out!

Also check that youor ball latch is in the correct position. Refer to your handy-dandy manual!

Thats exactly your problem. You must replace them. You can call Tippmann and get them for free (if under warrenty), or find them on pretty much any paintball website, including www.tippmannparts.com

Its very important that you replace them and dont overtighten.

They are just called valve bolts. Call and ask for valve bolts.

Im pretty sure the FireStorm crank will work with a double trigger. It looks like it goes right in front of the trigger so it shouldnt matter.

i dont think he's talking about valve bolts, sound like he's missing a couple of bolts the hold the receiver halves together. And if the bolts don't work, check your power tube for a crack, that was my problem.  The bolts that you are missing, do you screw them in on the left half or the right half?

Yeah, the valve bolts are incredibly important. Go to your local paintball store if you can't order online and get them (not Wal-Mart, they won't have anything). You want the valve bolts.

Here's the link on TippmannParts.

If I were you I'd try to spring for the whole replacement parts kit, but if you can't afford it just get two of those bolts.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.
