When I drop a CO2 cartridge into the tube, and close it up, all of the air escapes around the cap when I pull the trigger. The gun has been stored over a long period. I tried it 3 times, and got the same results each time.

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

The most likely problem to occur is the seal where you place your bb gun gas canisters. You can take care of this issue with a CO2 cartridge seal replacement. The air gun cartridge deforms the seal overtime, and this causes the leak to occur.
The Crosman Super Points are made to precise specifications with a far-reaching tip to ensure good, dependable, shot-to-shot accuracy. Hitting targets within a 50-yard range is no problem. From 40 yards, my average grouping was about 1.5” using the standard iron sights on my Remington Vantage 1200.
Air gun pellets differ from bullets and shot used in firearms in terms of the pressures encountered; airguns operate at pressures as low as 50 atmospheres, while firearms operate at thousands of atmospheres.
You need to shoot a minimum of 200 rounds right out of the box. Don`t overly worry about fine tuning your sights at this point. Just get those rounds through the gun during this “Break-in Period.” The phenomenon known as “Dieseling,” can be very common during the break-in period.
Caulk and weatherstrip doors and windows that leak air. Caulk and seal air leaks where plumbing, ducting, or electrical wiring comes through walls, floors, ceilings, and soffits over cabinets. Install foam gaskets behind outlet and switch plates on walls.
Shut all windows, exterior doors, and fireplace flues. Turn on all exhaust fans that blow air outside, such as your clothes dryer, bathroom fans, or stove vents, or use a large window fan to suck the air out of the rooms.
For sighting at long range with iron sights, we recommend shooting from 50 yards away from your target.
Muzzle Velocity For Best Accuracy

The results for both . 177 and . 22 calibers substantiate the belief – widely held among experienced airgunners – that the optimum Muzzle Velocity for accurate airgun shooting with pellets is in the 800 – 950 FPS range.

Most airgun manufacturers use 200 BAR as the operating pressure in their airgun cylinders.
The effective penetrating range of a BB gun with a muzzle velocity of 120 to 180 m/s (390 to 590 ft/s) is approximately 18 m (60 ft). A person wearing jeans at this distance would not sustain serious injury.
At close range, projectiles from many BB and pellet guns, especially those with velocities greater than 350 fps, can cause tissue damage similar to that inflicted by powder-charged bullets fired from low-velocity conventional firearms.
Dry firing PCP or CO2 air rifles will usually be completely safe, as there isn`t a piston to worry about. You`re simply releasing a short spurt of air/CO2 to force the pellet up the barrel.
Prolonged air leak is frequently associated with several postoperative complications—ranging from simple pulmonary atelectasis to severe pneumonia and pleural empyema—thus causing prolonged hospital stay and higher hospital costs (4).
An air leak is the leakage of air from an air-containing cavity into spaces that, under normal circumstances, do not contain air. The term air leak syndrome is used to describe symptoms of respiratory distress occurring in conjunction with an air leak.
0.40 CFM/ft2 = Standard Practice

2021 International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) requires building thermal envelope testing in accordance with ASTM E779, ANSI/RESNET/ICC 380, ASTM E3158, or ASTM E1827 such that the measured air leakage shall not exceed 0.40 CFM75/ft2.

If the smoke stream moves horizontally, you`ve found a leak that needs to be sealed. Next, you`ll need caulk and a caulking gun. Experts recommend using silicone caulk, which is waterproof, flexible and long-lasting. Caulk can seal cracks and gaps that are less than ¼-inch wide.
50 caliber projectiles at over 1000 feet per second and generating energy levels of over 650 foot-pounds, the Texan takes its place as the world`s most powerful production air rifle.
A . 177 caliber pellet gun is better for target shooting because the ammo is cheaper and more available. A . 22 caliber pellet gun is better for small game hunting because it generates more energy.
177 is probably the better choice for accuracy in many cases such as the backyard, outdoor range or indoor shooting range.
Most hunters want a rifle that will shoot a large heavy pellet accurately at 750 to 900 f.p.s. Most general shooters – the so-called plinkers – want to shoot at 600 to 900 f.p.s. with a rifle and 350 to 550 f.p.s. with a pistol. High velocity does not mean high quality or accuracy.
As we can see from the chart above, the . 177 caliber PCPs tested by HAM showed a clear preference for the heavy, lead, domed H&N Baracuda Match pellets to achieve best accuracy. Over 50% of the most accurate HAM targets were shot using these pellets.
Airgun manufacturers will typically impose a one to 10 time pumping maximum on their multi-pump airguns based on standard day conditions and maximum valve pressure. The pump limit is meant to preserve seals, reduce wear and tear and prevent valve lock.
The . 22 pellet is larger, bigger and heavier which transfers more energy to the quarry, resulting in a cleaner kill. On the other hand, the . 177 pellet has a flatter trajectory, which means that the aim point is closer to the point of impact and it is easier to hit your target.
A blow gun is said to be “safe” when the air pressure measured at the nozzle, when the nozzle is blocked, or dead-ended, does not exceed 200 kPa. This pressure limit helps to reduce the risk of particles or air getting through the skin.

I bought a new mossberg 590 a1 shot gun a month ago, I love the gun but its having a couple of problems, the first problem is that when shooting every once in a while i get sprayed in the face with exuast from shooting through the safety very scary! any ideas whats causing this? how to fix it? second is that some times the fireing pin sticks and the gun will not discharge a round? the third problem is that i have had feeding issues with gun where it will not realice a gound from the tube, ive taken a tip of a knife to the stuck round in the tube and it prys out with little effort, these problems dont happen every time i go shooting, just every once in a while, but they a happening more and more, im conserned cause the gun is brand new, and i wanna be safe while shooting, can you guys help me? any ideas/solutions? please help!!!!!!!

I have a tippmann custom pro with a cyclone feeder. I recently got the SAW stock to put on it and encountered some problems many times after I reassembled the gun. I took it apart at least 5 times before I thought it was fixed but now ive encountered another problem. I believe it has to do with the cyclone feeder not responding or something is out of line in the gun. When I picked up the gun to shoot, no paint came out so I took off the CO2 and the barrel and saw that the paintball was 1/3 inside the gun. I also have a problem when im shooting it sometimes does really fast burst. Thank you
ANSWER : Hi there. Tippmann markers are super tough to make sure that they are put back together properly. The stupid clamshell design plus all the little, under engineered parts make it difficult to get it back together properly, especially after installing a stock. I was in the paintball industry for 10 years but have been out of it for a little bit, but i was one of the founding members of Uprising Nation and was a gunsmith/ salesman for / Xtremes. Now with that said…I even had trouble with the tippmann 98’s…and I can rebuild an autococker with my eyes closed but can sometimes be stumped by the tippy’s bad design. It is really tough to diagnose an issue on these guns without looking at it. You may have the ball detent backwards,l missing a pin, sometimes the after market stocks on those are a little too large on the outside diameter preventing the internals from properly seating. The cycloce system may be off due to the valves not meing properly aligned or the connecting rod not being in all the way. Many times though it is incorrect installation of the detent or the deternt gets damages. That little orange peice of **** flap is a mance. I would start there.

It may seem like i am bashing your gun. Im not… Once they are put together properly they work great. Just DONT TAKE THEM APART. lol. If you buy the parts at a local gun shop they will install them for free.

lol I have 6 guns for sale 🙂

Have a good day

I have a Daisy 2003 35 shot repeater pellet gun. I do not know how to load the red magazine.
There is a black slide pin on the mag, and a place to, i think, load each pellet individually.
Does the slide pin have to be in a certain position to load the pellets?
Do I load each pellet individually?
Thanks for your help
ANSWER : The slide pin needs to be in the up position, and yes you have to load the magazine with the pellets one at a time.

My magazine for my m10 swat aeg airsoft gun is loaded but i cant get the pellets to feed into the gun without tipping the gun upside down. how can i fix this?
ANSWER : It could be the fact that it is a winding mag, wind the wheel on the bottom until resistance or double clicks are heard, then you are ready to go, eventually you will have to wind it some more though
