Tipx Issue

I posted this in the Tippmann section but figured I'd put it here too.

So I purchased a couple of Tipx's from a person and one works perfect. The other one has a tech t bolt installed. When I went to air that one up last night it seals and doesn't leak, but when you pull the trigger you get this "Chuff" sound instead of the usual louder sound signature of the Tipx. I tried increasing the velocity as it may have been zero'd out but that wasn't the case at all. Any ideas?

Are you sure the co2 isn't a dud? The "Chuff" sound you describe sounds like it's out of air...

If not, break it down and see what's going on, it's not a complex gun:

Pierce pin could need replacement. Might not be flowing enough pressure/volume from the cartridge.

Yeah, sounds to me like the pierce pin might not be adjusted properly? If not, make sure there's lube on it and no paint shell pieces between the bolt and the powertube, I've had that happen once with the stock bolt and completely jammed the thing in place. Wouldn't have thought you could get shell back that far in the gun, but that's the fun part of clamshells, stuff gets freaking everywhere.

The internals aren't aligned right. Maybe the 'air' tube isn't properly aligned between the reg/valve and 12g, or maybe the reg/valve is slightly off kilter.

It's happened to me twice before after a complete teardown/rebuild.

If you gas it up and it won't actually fire, but consistently makes that 'chuff' or 'psst' sound... A) you know your hearing gas going through, so the 12g is pierced. B) something still ain't right!

I found both times this has happened, a quick tear down/ more careful alignment/placement of the internals fixed the issue.

Good luck... you should be able to tear down the TPX pretty easily anyway for regular gun maintenance... don't be scared of it, actually a pretty easy gun to work on (just beware the Tippman 1/2 shell design = stuff pops out if your not ready!)



Cold 12g won't make that much difference. They are completely sealed, so the co2 doesn't have a chance to 'leak out' like it may on a larger valve based Co2 tank. And even 'cold', you would still be able to get off a few shots... otherwise just bring them into the house to warm them up a few hours before testing.

Another possibility is that the firing pin inside the small block on the side of the valve might be bent. This can cause that sort of trouble as well.
It's important when you reassemble a TPX that the trigger is forward and that the sliding bar that attaches to the trigger and pushes the firing pin is snug against the back wall of the body, or it can catch and bend that firing pin.
