This started last weekend during a team practice. Only put about 4000 rounds through the gun. I pull the trigger, and it will dump all the air until there is none left. It sounds like a minigun. If it actually shot paintballs this fast i might be ok with it :D

I stripped the valve down. no damaged o-rings, everything is greased, no visible damage to anything.


I only aired the gun up then turned the air off. If I hadnt turned it off it would dump all 3000 psi in about 15 seconds.

Figured it out thanks to a second call to tippmann
o-ring TA30050. you would never even know it was there until you remove the hog-ring holding the power tube assembly in the valve. And even then I still had to be looking for this o-ring. Apparently some phenoms from the factory are totally missing this o-ring. how i was able to shoot approx 2 cases of paint through it and only have a problem now? I have no idea.
Anyways, stripped the valve all the way down, including the power tube assembly. No o-ring in there. already had an o-ring kit shipped to me and should be here in the next few days. good to know in the future i guess
