What valve are you running?
What bolt are you running?
Did you put a few drops of oil in the ASA before play today?

Can you post pics?

Is it leaking down the barrel?

Bolt stick is usually caused by too short a spacer and/or too tight of a field strip screw.

It can also be caused by aftermarket products.

Can you post pics of your setup?

I know everyone says to put the oil in the asa but if you only put 2-3 drops. By the time it reaches your valve it pretty much thinned out after going through everything. Best place to put the oil is at the QD of the valve.

If it was shooting fine one sec and all of the sudden not. With out any other info at hand, I'd have to say it's oil. Fill your QD up and shoot it out with the barrel off.

With out any other info. It's kind of hard to tell whats up with it. Have you cked for debris in the valve? Also some ASA on/off's are too long for some tanks. If the tanks pin is pushed to far inside it will restrict the air flow and also cause what your experiencing.

If you went all hour on the tank with no refills that may be your issue as well. Mags start to have problems when the tank pressure falls below 800 or so.

check your powertube spacer, if its a lvl 7, it should be a 220 spacer

If its a lvl 10, I can walk you through that too

Your thumb screw should only be finger tight, make sure the front frame screw is tightened and check for any debris inside the marker
