Hello,

I Have a tippman 98 custom, It has a A.P.E. rampage board in it and for some reason when i fire some times itll decock itself, but the hammer doesnt go all the way foward. it only moves abour 2cm foward  and it looks like its cocked but i have to pull it back to recock it so i can fire again. I replaced the front bolt so far. i dont know what else to do. can anyone help me?

I'm going to assume this only happens when shooting paintballs. What happens is that your 98 is shooting faster than your loader can feed.  A paintball is getting caught between the front bolt & receiver. Then when you pull back on the cocking handle the ball drops into the breach & is ready to fire. You either need to slow the rate of fire or get a faster loader.
