Hey guys,
I am hoping someone can help me out and give me some pointers.

At NvS my X7 sprung a leak, With some help from the Tippman Tech at the event we found it to be caused by the little brass screw that screws into the brass valve (?) under the velocity adjuster to be coming loose.
He advised me that if it continued to loctite it in.

Anyways the leak occurred a few more times so after the event i stripped the gun down, loctited the little bugger in place and put it all back together,

Now I went to use the marker at a event yesterday and noticed 2 things.
Firstly I am chopping paint nearly every shot!
Secondly my full auto has stopped working?

The gun fires fine in manual but if I swap it to FA mode (Which is set to bounce in my case) it fires ok for 2 shots then seems to just stop?
Then it will fire 2 times again after leaving it a second and do the same.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks.

Andy

Make sure the brass nut (Trigger Pin Plug) that the firing pin passes through is screwed in flush with the bottom of the FlexValve. If it protrudes above flush it will not let the trigger engage properly in electronic mode. If that isn't it then check your battery. If you continue to have this issue call our service department for a prompt free repair.

Thanks for the response and sorry about the late reply.
Today is the 1st time I have had a chance to play with it.
I have tried as you suggested but everything seems ok with that. I did notice though when I took it apart the problem seems to be with the trigger unit itself as when it is off the gun it does exactly the same?

Could it be a faulty solenoid or something?

Where would I get a free repair in the UK?

Thanks.
Andy

Just thought I would update this incase anyone has the same problem in future.

Basicly it was a fault with my Board, I re-set it back to factory defaults and it started working again, I have since found out that apparently this is a common fault with the boards and they keep getting the fault at intermittent times.

So I have brought a rampage board and fitted that so all problems solved and now more settings to play with :D

Cheers, Titch
