I give up, Sniper is being poopy, please help!
Gun in question: Aftermarket Sniper II
Problem: added a buch of aftermarket parts, now valve does not work.
#1 Yes I put it back together correctly
#2 Yes I have a cocker valve tool
#3 yes it worked before I monkeyed with it
#4 yes I feel like a total noob right now and my hat is in hand (with a live grenade!;) )
Full Details: 2k KAPP cocker converted to pump status. Valve leaked a bit. Nothing on/in her is stock anymore. Installed an 'AKA knock off' valve kit and she doesn't want to fire. (Using PMI Pure Energy HPA) I do NOT have a regulator on the gun.
Symptom: She cocks back fine. I pull trigger, sear releases hammer into valve stem and 'clank' sounds like dry fire! Valve does not open up (weird!). I do a sample diagnostic: screw in cocking rod into hammer, place it on valve stem and GENTLY tap with hammer - NOTHING!!! No pop. It acts like the hammer never even touches the valve, acts like it is caught up on something, but it is not.:huh:
I am completely stimeyed.
Any words of wisdom?
ps I sold the old valve to raise money for the spalttys so I can't re-install to diagnose the valve.
Possible solution: Need a regulator to reduce pressure in valve because HP tank is malfunctioning too much high output?!
What regulator should I get?
How about just trying the valve that came with it?
even if it does leak it will show you were the problems might be?
I don't know how to help you, but if you do get a reg, make it an AKA sidewinder or a CP shorty reg. Good stuff.
I would degas the gun do the cocking rod in the hammer and feel if you are opening the valve or not. Most likely you will need a reg on it. I used ANS valves and they would not work over 500psi. If you are using a P/E high pressure tank your out put is in the 800 to 900psi range.
As for a reg you need to get something with low out put like in the 200 to 300psi range. CP reg, ANS, Dye, Bob Long
it's very simple the combination of the gas pressure and the valve spring is simply too much for the main spring and hammer to overcome.
Yeah, especially if it's a tornado knock-off. There's no way you can run that straight off a tank. Any reg will do...I like WGP stock regs for general purpose regulation.
Anyone got a reg to sell?
I second the reg, AKA valves are designed for LP operation. Since you areent concerned with ROF, almost any 1/2 decent reg will do. Used CP and AA regs can be had for a low price these days, just look around.
PM sent on reg
