I've had my A-5 for like 3 months now and gradually, (but surely) the cocking nob is getting harder and harder to pull back. Bow i pratically have to use a hammer. Do you know why this is happening and what i can do to prevent/stop it?

are you oiling it properly? tippmanns dont take much maintenance, but oiling once a month or so wont hurt.

also, check that no crap is building up behind the cocking knob/drive spring/anywhere.

First, make sure you're front bolt is not backwards. Check your springs too.
