pmi trracer bolt issue fixed! thanks dukie!
So I was testing a stick feed I built trying to save myself $5, and I couldn't get any paint to feed. Seriously wondering how I could have screwed up a stick feed, I rip it apart and start from square one. Still no good.

So I get fed up, and make another where all I have to do is cram a 10 round tube in the feed neck. Then realize paint STILL won't feed. Pop it out and cock the gun while looking down the feedneck. When pulled fully back, I can still see the very lip of the bolt o-ring and the face of the bolt directly after the oring.

Is this normal? It is the velocity adjustable bolt, if that makes a difference. I'm also starting to suspect I have some rather large diameter paint (too large for the trracer breech) as it bore matches perfect with my pgp.

Also not really in a position to pick up any paint of any higher quality than walmart grade stuff right now. Or I would test that right off the bat.

incorrect power tube, bolt or hammer? I can't see the velocity adjuster causing that issue. If that were the case I would think it wouldn't even latch up to the hammer at all.

Just dug out the original non adjustable bolt that came with the gun, going to pop it in and see if it still does the same thing. If so, I'll do a full tear down and take some pics to post up.

edit: popped in original bolt (non adjustable) and it fits perfect. bolt completely clears the breech.

going to screw the velocity adjuster screw all the way in and really bury that o ring into the bolt see what happens. Didn't really know it could go so far. First nelson I've ever owned.

All right! All is well, buried the velocity screw completely, didn't realize it went so dang far. Was kind of worried about shredding the o-ring but it's fine. Thank you for the crazy fast response dukie, making me look at the velocity adjuster more closely. I really just need to study this thing inside and out and get way more familiar with this valve train. Thankfully, it's really simple.
