    Posted: 31 March 2012 at 8:47pm
i recently bought an expansion chamber and tried to install it only to find out that it doesn't fit on my a-5 e-trigger. when i put the gun back together and tried to fire it, it would burst fire like when low on Co2 ever or every other shot. i cleaned and oiled the gun and the problem persisted. i then bought a parts kit and replaced everything i could and it still misfires. iv gone through more than one full Co2 tank to try and trouble shoot it so i know its not low on gas. when i shoot the gun now it misfires 99% of the time and the cyclone spins rapidly when it misfires.
please help.

possibly the macro or gas lines are bad, or damaged. When you install your air lines or 90 degree adapters do you use plumbers tape? sounds like a pressure issue. is there any sign of a leak? the cyclone is spinning rapidly because the access air used to power it is having a pressure issue.

Which expansion chamber did you try to put on? When you took the gun appart did you make sure that you put in your detent on the right way? The detent is the orange rubber piece in the chamber. What is your guns velocity set to?

tippman  e-mailed me saying that because i took the e-trigger apart that it was almost always due to a small magnet in the trigger got stuck to the solenoid in the etrigger.
hope this helps someone else
