Return stroke, UGGH's

Hey all,


Wondering if you all want to partake in solving a mystery.... Atleast to me.


So I got new internals, spring and seal kit, the whole ten yards.... buuuuuut....


After the bolt and hammer lock together, the return stroke is HORRIBLE, its not "oh I am not strong enough" It feels like I am pumping a unibody phantom with the internals rusted in place.....


I am fairly sure everything is together right.


If it helps any, it never did this with my old cut spring/F'd Bolt and TPC, just now with the new one.... but when i tried my old one again its as bad as the first....



Oh, and only does this happen when it is aired up, so I know it is something to do with the hammer. Also when I "clipped" the hammer and bolt together the TPC didn't look like it was getting along....

Sounds like the hammer's binding.

If it's not that, i notice mine does that when i tighten the snot out of the body screws. leave them just over finger tight, and make sure the screw holes are 100% aligned.

probably not the cause, but my pump arm was tweaked just a little bit and it caused a horrible pump stroke. Changed the pump arm and good as new. Aloha!

I had this same problem. I emailed Mike and he said to completely screw in the TPC, then back it out I think it was three or four turns or so. What happens is when the TPC is not far enough in, is that the bolt and hammer bind in the tube causing it to feel like sandpaper (at least to me).

I'd say make sure the pump arm is seated properly in the bolt and slides nicely in the rail groove, make sure the power tube is straight and in good repair, and the TPC is screwed into the bolt (towards the front of the marker - but not quite all the way, at least 1/2 to 1 full turn clockwise so the spring doesn't sit crooked against the threads in the TPC).

If none of that works check the internals and inside of the body for burrs.

And if that doesn't work - call Mike!

This is what I was thinking... but I wasn't sure why it happened with my new one... and not my old one...

I don't know why it happened to mine either. I don't remember adjusting the TPC or anything but it kinked up. Simple enough fix though.

If the TPC isn't threaded into the set screw tight enough, the TPC will unscrew as you shoot, lowering your velocity over the course of the day as well as causing kink.
