OK, I have a new C3 and i've noticed erratic operation of the electronic "sparking" circuit. The problem seems to get worse as the operating temperature drops. I played this weekend, and it got to the point where the marker was continiously sparking. While it is interesting that the marker at times has an "autotrigger" effect, I would like to get it fixed. My question: has anyone else run into this? I had to monkey around a bit to get it to stop sparking or firing. Now that the marker is indoors, and at 70 degrees, of course it is operating normally again.

I've read other places where people are having issues with their C3's as well firing in colder weather. I would advise on contacting Tippmann's tech support, they are very helpful and I'm sure will give you a better answer.

Propane itself is a funny gas while it does work in colder weather you might be experiencing issues with the colder weather on electronics as well.

Good luck and have fun

no, it would take a much lower temperature to freeze propane.
