ok so my friend got the a-5 sniper set up and after playing a few games he took it apart to clean it. when he put it back together it didnt work right. now we have all tried to find out what he did wrong but nothing seems to work right.
   the gun has no range the balls seem to barly make 20yds. the cyclone and RT doesnt work though the CO2 is full. and every 10 or so shots the gun sputers for like 5 shots or so. like its out of co2 but then catches again. does anyone know whats wrong we are running out of options. theres a big game this weekend and we really want him to come hes been in the army all summer, so if anyones got the answer thx

check the screws on the back of the gun that hold the bolt in. I had a similar problem with my 98. That's what I did to fix mine.
NASA and the Americans spent millions of dollars and hundreds of hours to develop a pen that would write in space.....The Russians used a pencil.

it ended up being the stock. for some reason the pin that slides back into the stock went further then it should so there wasnt enough pressure on the bolt spring. we dont no why this happend if its missing a screw or if something else fell out but we fixed it by finding a peice of pipe that matched the inside of the stock and cut it to length and slid it into the stock. now the pin fits flush with the stock. we dont know if this fixed the problem or just worked around it
