Hi,
Im new to this site and need some help. i used to play a lot a long time ago and used a pro carbine with a dye boomstick on it, worked great! Now some of my friends are starting to get back into it and when i pulled them out and put a tank on them, (tried 3 different ones that were just filled an hr before this, they are also brand new) there was no compression, its was like they wernt getting ANY air, the bolt would just fall like it didnt even have a tank on it. i have 2 and they are both doing them same thing. ANY help would be GREAT! also once i got them fixed could someone give me a ROUND about guess one what they would pay for what i mentioned above (for the marker and dye barrel). as i said, i have 2 and am thinking about selling them once i get them fixed. thanks a lot for the help!

That's odd. I would wonder if the pin in the ASA isn't opening the tank valve when you screw it on. That's the obvious place to start.

Maybe pull one of the ASAs off and screw it on a tank by itself. If you get a blast of co2, it's some other problem.

And used carbines, even with a barrel, won't sell for much at all. Maybe $75 or so.

yeah i thought it was pretty odd too, funny thing is my 98 custom sat just as long, but when i pulled it out, worked just like a charm, ill start with the asa, and if its not there then i reckon ill keep going from there

so i tested the asa and its getting perfect air, all the way through the hose, i have it completely torn apart accept for the actual air parts in the gun, any help would be great because i really want to get these things up and going again so i can have more friends play.
