What kind of tank are you using? Co2 (smaller size tank that you can buy from walmart).

Is the gun clean and have enough oil? i.e. have you clean it recently? Have you oil it recently? Just some oil by the bolt (the knob that you pull back to cock the gun) is fine.

We can help you diagnose it, just need a little more information.

ive put co2 on it that i know had plenty of pressure, i also put multiple hpa tanks on it. i also did lube it with gun oil, for actual guns, and also tried some for paintball guns. and its all clean and everything looks in pretty good.

Ok, what about the whole oil / clean thing? Is there enough lubricant to reduce friction on the gun?

i put quite a bit of oil on it and it seemed to slide easily when id slide the bolt back and forth in the gun. didnt seem like there was much resistense. i also took the whole thing apart and made sure the inside, bolt and striker were all spotless.

For blowbacks, isn't it normally the hammer o-ring when it doesn't recock? Try to replace that.

check the hammer oring and all the bolt orings, if they arent flat or have any chunks missing, try changing your main spring. also really make sure everything is clean and lubed as others have suggested. failing all of those things, your other options are too big of a hammer buffer and too strong of a valve spring. all of those things will prevent proper blowback and sear latching.

Yeah, don't use gun oil. It has solvents and other chemicals to clean powder residue. They eat o-rings. Odds are if you used that, your hammer o-ring is toast.

Gun oil is for guns. Air tool oil without detergents is perfect for blowbacks.
