Slow Recharge on Desert Fox.

I got my desert fox out of retirement, gassed it up, and shot it. no leaks. but the recharge was so slow that i couldnt fire more than 2 quick shots without shoot down! so i called ICD and ordered a parts kit. I replaced all the o-rings, springs, and oiled everything well. still had terrible shoot down. whats the deal?

Does your bottle have pressure for about a full turn when you screw it in? Idk about ICD, but the fit of old bottles and ASA pins was not a given.

What propellant are you using? Air or Co2? If you're using Air, are you using a high pressure tank? I've got a low pressure output tank and it doesn't work for the Fox.

Do you have an expansion chamber or an inline reg your using with it? If so, have you verified that these work properly?

Maybe it's a piece of teflon tape stuck in one of the hoses?

I can't ever remember having shoot down problems with my Fox. I've heard of people shearing an o-ring at points and finding pieces of it in manifolds. Maybe it might be something similar.

it may be the co2 adapter i am using. i have a gauge on the vertical ASA and it shows a big drop off in input pressure after each shot....like from 800 before the shot to 300 after...i need to get a new tank or compressed air tank and test it out.

If you're getting shootdown at the vert ASA, that's before it hits the rear reg, isn't it? That would definitely indicate something either choking airflow, like a partially depressed tank pin.
