AR:K Question

I love the weight, look, and feel of my AR:K, but I haven't been able to use it yet because it doesnt seem to work correctly. The problem that I'm having is that the gun will shoot fine a couple times but if I shoot too many in rapid succession the bolt seems to get jammed up and not fire full shots or even get stuck in the forward position. Anyone know what I'm talking about

Does it leak out of the barrel when your bolt stays forward?

When you initially air it up, do you try and force the bolt back? Will this stop the leak? If the answer to these is yes then It is your valve stem.

First remove the allen bolt that is under the barrel. This has a stem with a magnet on it. Make sure it is straight and the small magnet is still in place. You are going to have to get to the valve and stem. The valve has 2 orings. Check these 2 orings and make sure they are ok. I am sure one of these is cut. The valve has a white delrin plastic at the base that sometimes gets scratched or the valve stem itself gets a little bent. If it is bent then you will need to replace it.

The oring on the valve can be replaced with a spare that came with your gun. Good luck and let me know how it works out.

This was my post on the issue. Some good info;

Angel AR:K Leaking.....Help!!!

Remember that the AR:K claims that it can run on any HPA tank but it really needs a lower pressure tank. If not, your reg will leak. If this happens simply lower the reg pressure. If you cant get the desired velocity then you will need a lower output pressure tank.

I hope you already know how to get to the valve because the manual is useless. Take your time and you will figure it out. Be carefull when messing with and removing the eye cables. They are sensitive and can break if bent wrong.

Check out the "Angel Sports Tech Video for the AR:k/SB". They have a few videos that will guide you through the dissasembly.
