Cocker won't fire.

I've got an e-bladed dye cocker that is having some problems. The macro line recently wore out, and now that I've replaced it, the gun cycles, but won't fire. I'm sure this will be a simple fix of some sort, but could someone help me out?

Oh and I've got an Evo length delrin bolt, bolt pin, and access to a top-notch machinist. Is it going to displease the cocker gods if I tap the p-block for a bolt with a standard pin?

Could be a number of things - check to make sure you've got enough pressure into the gun. Is it making a farting noise? Just cycling? Could be the hammer isn't coming back far enough to latch onto the sear, could be the sear isn't releasing, etc.

by macro line do you mean the small airline on the frontblock? If so, did you replace it the right way?

Is it cocking? If not, your lug is set too far up, screw it in.

If it is cocking and not firing, the lug is set too far down, screw it out.

The batteries might be low or a loose connection is somewhere in your frame.

By macroline I mean the line from the ASA to the reg. The gun isn't making a farting noise at all. I should still have enough pressure to the gun, as nothing in my setup changed. I didn't check the battery, but will as soon as I can tonight. Thanks for all the responses so quickly.

Yeah, I've heard E-Cocker have poor battery life due to having to activate two solenoids and the LCD display sucks up a lot.

They do. But I've had some bad luck with batteries lately anyway. I think I bought a bad 8 pack or something. I had one battery in it for about 4 hours of play, changed it the next day with a fresh battery, and it died with-in an hour. I got another out of that pack and it didn't last 20 minutes. Apparently I didn't throw the rest of the pack away. Sitting in my gear bag for two months didn't help. Buy Duracell folks.

I love Duracell batteries.

You always could put a nice ANS Quickfire slider frame and a nice 3-way on there and not have to worry about batteries.
