Empire resurrection issue

Hello MCB,

I am a little new to cockers and just picked up a ressy for a great deal. I am having a problem I am hoping someone here could help me with. The gun airs up great with no leaks, but when I pull the trigger, the bolt doesn't go back far enough to allow for a ball to drop into the breach and won't feed. I want save myself some money because my local shop charges a decent amount. Any information provided would be appreciated.
Cheers!

Turn you lpr in until it cocks reliably and then do a bit more.

Can you cock the gun by pulling the bolt back with no air?
If so then turn up your LPR.

If not then you need to increase your sleds throw distance. You can unscrew the pump arm from the sled a bit, or unscrew your ram from the pump art a bit. Your sled should not quite touch the front of the body in it's aired up resting state. You don't want that sled hitting the body putting stress on the threads.

This doesn't sound like a recocking issues, it's sled throw distance

Line was just mentioned, unscrew that sled from the pump arm or pump am from the ram.

The other thing it can be is if your ram isn't screwed in to the front block enough.

But most commonly it's the sled/ pump arm screwed in too far when people put the marker back together they just screw stuff in until it's tight and you can't do that on some parts of a cocker or or doesn't work

I appreciate all the help here, I adjusted the LPR a little and now the bolt goes back far enough to shoot a paintball.
I have made a video on my youtube of it now, but I feel like either the timing is off or I'm just not used to cockers. It almost feels like when I pull the trigger the gun won't shoot until I let go of the trigger. I couldn't figure out how to get the video here but this is the link below.

I cant see the video at work, but you might want to check the depth on the lug on your hammer. Remove the bolt and stick an allen key down into the nut on the top of the hammer, it should be in the milled slot. Mess with the depth of it until the sear releases the hammer about 1/4 of the way into the trigger pull. after fixing this, you might need to fix the timing rod, but we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Your lug is not far enough down, the sear is not catching the lug at all so when the bolt comes forward the hammer is going with it and hitting the valve

Did you put it together? All the things you are describing are just rookie mistakes, nothing critical

Do yourself a favor and grab an Inception Designs hammer.

The stock Ressy hammer has a design flaw in which the sear catches the hammer prior to the bolt clearing the breech. The ID hammer has a longer slot to fix this issue.

I sell these BTW and they really are a good product, best single upgrade for the resurrection for sure.
But get your gun working before you start changing it !

I want to thank you all for the awesome advice, I need to set some time aside this weekend to work on it. I'll check back if I have any issues! Like Hellion said I will get it working then I will look into that ID hammer!

Also yes I am new to cockers, but not paintball. I didn't put any of the gun together I just bought it locally for a good deal. So this is my first time tinkering with a cocker and looking to get it shooting nice for the spring.
