3357 Question

It keeps breaking balls. It lines up fine, It seems like it's pushing out too mush c02.

Anythoughts?

are they breaking in the barrel, or in the speedloader? is it an original, or one of the newer ones that were converted from pellet pistols?

If the cylinders are even slightly misaligned, it will cause the paint to explode on impact with the barrel.

If it's the valve that has become defective and is shooting too much co2, very few people could replace it. Not even Sheridan has many spare parts for it now (as opposed to even 5 years ago)

Sorry for lacking more infor for you.

I have the same problem with my 3357, I think it's because there doesn't seem to be anything stopping the loader from "over rotating" when you move the marker. At least thats my guess. Sorry I couldn't be more help

Its probably under-rotating. If you cock it and the groves with the gun and the cylinder dont quite match up, finish rotating it by hand, or just by some fresh parts. Worn down parts can cause that too. If its linning up fine, I doubt its too much power, its the cylinder. If its a really hot day, on some of the cylinders, that rubber/tar material will melt and make the paintball all sticky, or just completly block the paintball from leaving the cylinder because theres a sticky mess everywhere.

That is funny. I do not see there problem. 3357 valve is childy primitive and for absolute disassembly of entire 3357 you need only two screwdrivers. All seals are here regular o-rings or only "circular rubber lamellae", with can you make self only with elemental tools. What do you think is so complicated here?

Lower the amount of CO2 what goes in the mechanism can you simply with underlayng of the valve spring with some washer. Or can you use weaker spring.

Here, on this german website are pictures of similar valve:

It's the same guts as the crosman 357 pellet gun which they still make.
I've heard of conversions using the back half of the 357, so the valve parts should still be available.

But the cylinder is still the most likely culprit.
If you put a cylinder in and pull the hammer all the way back, you can 'trace' the topstrap onto the cylinder with a pencil. Then remove the cylinder and examine the marks to see if the chamber is centered.
