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. :

When you screw in a paintball gun gas tank and find that there is a significant amount of air leaking around the air source adapter (ASA) fitting, the problem invariably comes from a damaged O-ring. Fix this problem by removing the existing O-ring (size 015) and replace it with a new one.
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.
HOW LONG DOES THE CO2 CARTRIDGE LAST? ​Once penetrated on the first trigger pull, the CO2 cartridge will last 24 hours or 21 shots.
A CO2 leak can lead to a particularly dangerous concentration of gas for anyone on the premises. Indeed, carbon dioxide is an odorless, colorless and mostly harmless gas when it is in the air at usual concentrations (0.03%) but it very quickly becomes dangerous at higher concentrations.
Clothes dryers. Water heaters. Furnaces or boilers. Fireplaces, both gas and wood burning.
If you suspect a leak, simply fill a spray bottle with soap and water. Then, spray any connection between the CO2 tank and the keg. If you have a gas leak, the soap will start to bubble and you will know where to look. Most times you only need to tighten a fitting down to resolve the problem.
Sooty or brownish-yellow stains around the leaking appliance. Stale, stuffy, or smelly air, like the smell of something burning or overheating. Soot, smoke, fumes, or back-draft in the house from a chimney, fireplace, or other fuel burning equipment. The lack of an upward draft in chimney flue.
However, a severe hazard associated with pressurized CO2 is the Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapour Explosion (BLEVE).
Dry Firing PCP and CO2 Air Rifles

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.

A full 16 gram CO2 cartridge weights 56.8 grams. A full 20 gram CO2 cylinder weighs 69.7 grams.
A: CO2 pressurizes at about 850 PSI.
At even higher levels of CO2 can cause asphyxiation as it replaces oxygen in the blood-exposure to concentrations around 40,000 ppm is immediately dangerous to life and health.
Carbon monoxide gas is odorless—it cannot be smelled. However, never ignore the “rotten egg” smell of natural gas. Try to find the source of the leak (often an unlit gas stove burner accidentally turned on while wiping down the stovetop).
Without proper precautions, the gas can have serious negative health consequences for individuals working near it, including headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, and even death.
When CO2 levels in the bloodstream are too high, it can lead to various symptoms, ranging from mild to potentially life threatening. Mild symptoms may include headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. In more severe cases, you may experience difficulty breathing, irregular heartbeat, seizures, or respiratory failure.
When carbon dioxide reacts with water, carbonic acid is formed, from which hydrogen ions dissociate, increasing the acidity of the system.
If you suspect a leak, simply fill a spray bottle with soap and water. Then, spray any connection between the CO2 tank and the keg. If you have a gas leak, the soap will start to bubble and you will know where to look. Most times you only need to tighten a fitting down to resolve the problem.
If you are hearing a hissing noise coming from your SodaStream Source, the carbonation tube is leaking gas, or the carbonation bottle is leaking, use the SodaStream Source is Leaking Gas problem page to fix the leak.

Call your emergency services (fire department or 911). Immediately move to fresh air – outdoors or by an open door or window.

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 PaintballOnline.com / 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

Hello, I have an old Tippman A5 (about 5-6 years
ANSWER : You will have to buy a different barrel for the A5, I would suggest ansgear.com, rockstartactical.com, or ebay. Make sure that you get the right threads along with an apex capeable front. I would suggest the sly carbon fibur barrels, or get a autococker barrel and a lapco adapter for your A5. Hope this helps if you have any questions just let me know.

Will an A-5 shroud fit a 98? – Tippmann A 5 Standard Paintball Gun
ANSWER : Depends on the barrel. The flatline is a curved barrel and has a specific shroud. But there’s a shroud that fits the regular straight barrel too. Otherwise it depends on the length and width of the barrel you want it to fit. If you’re talking a shroud/barrel combination and whether one that fits on an A-5 will fit on the 98 I would initially say no. There are a few out there that are fit for both, depending on the adaptor you may be using. Best bet is to meet whoever is selling it and try it out or ask them if they’ve fit it to someone else’s (in the case if you’re buying online).Good luck! Play hard, play safe, play with honor!
