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. :

Misfire. This occurs when the trigger is pulled and the firearm does not fire. It is caused either by a weak firing pin or a defective primer that fails to ignite the powder charge. If you are using a blackpowder firearm, inspect the priming cap or charge.
A dud (also a misfire or failure to fire) occurs when the trigger is pulled but the primer or powder in the cartridge malfunctions, causing the firearm not to discharge. Dud rounds can still be dangerous and should be deactivated and disposed of properly.
Hammer: A device that strikes the firing pin or cartridge primer to detonate the powder.
A firing pin block is a mechanical block used in semi-automatic firearms and some revolvers that, when at rest, obstructs forward travel of the firing pin, but is linked to the trigger mechanism and clears the obstruction to the pin just before the hammer or striker is released.
A failure to eject a round happens most commonly when the casing of the newly fired round does not successfully leave the chamber of the gun. This can commonly be caused by a broken extractor claw, excessively-dirty gun chamber, case rim failing, or several other reasons.
A misfire occurs when the firing pin or striker fails to detonate the primer or the primer fails to ignite the propellant charge in the cartridge. Misfire is synonymous with failure to fire, and you`ll usually experience this type of malfunction as an audible click.
“Based on the SAAMI-specified drop test, statistics will tell you that our primers are 99.9997 percent reliable. That means that when struck with sufficient energy and properly centered, they will go off 99.9997 percent of the time.
The trigger is squeezed, releasing the firing pin, which moves forward with great force. The firing pin strikes the primer, causing it to explode. The spark from the primer ignites the gunpowder. Gas converted from the burning powder rapidly expands in the cartridge.
In centerfire cartridges, the primer is located in the center of the base of the cartridge. Firing pins for centerfire cartridges usually have a round cross-section and their movement is usually through a hole in the breechblock along the axis of the center of the barrel`s bore.
Active firing pins usually fall into two main types: the integral pin, which is built into or solidly fixed to the front of the hammer; and the swiveling pin that has a pivot pin through it, as typified on S&W revolvers.
When dry fired, the firing pin on centerfire rifles and some semiautomatic weapons travels until it hits the end of the channel. This over-traveling can cause the pin to hit the frame with tremendous force, causing damage to the striker. If the firing pin is brittle, it`s just a matter of time before it breaks.
When the safety is on you cannot see the red dot. When the safety is taken off there is a red dot, which means the firearm is now ready to fire. Once a firearm`s red dot is exposed it should be handled with even more care. Even if you are not sure if the firearm is loaded or not, you must treat it as though it is.
Failing to lubricate your gun means it will have a harder time operating properly, and metal parts can stress and even fail. Even if the gun isn`t used, moisture from sweat and the storage environment can corrode the metal parts and form rust. These issues will impact your gun`s reliability, accuracy and longevity.
Not all single-shot firearms have extractors, though many do. Break-action shotguns, double rifles, and combination guns typically have an extractor that push out the casings when the action is flexed open.
There are several types of engine misfires, including lean misfires, ignition misfires, and mechanical misfires.
According to Weeks` primer data (99.9997 percent reliability), you might hit one every 300,000 rounds. That said, our experience at Black Hills does not indicate that high of a misfire rate.
Speed of lightโ€”faster than a speeding bullet.
The . 220 Swift remains the fastest commercial cartridge in the world, with a published velocity of 1,422 m/s (4,665 ft/s) using a 1.9 grams (29 gr) bullet and 2.7 grams (42 gr) of 3031 powder.
The 9mm is the most popular, and therefore the most common, ammunition in the United States. While it isn`t a runaway in terms of outselling its nearest competitor โ€” which is the . 223 / 5.56 โ€” it`s still a convincing lead.
The main defining component of the cartridge is the case, which gives the cartridge its shape and serves as the integrating housing for other functional components โ€“ it acts as a container for the propellant powders and also serves as a protective shell against the elements; it attaches the projectile either at the …
In terms of shelf life, ammunition generally doesn`t expire or go bad. Many manufacturers will list an expiration date of ten years past the manufacturer date, but that`s more for legal reasons than it is for safety reasons. If it`s stored correctly, then there`s no real known limit to how long you can keep ammunition.
Although most manufacturers recommend not using ammo older than ten years, it`s better to be safe than sorry. After a few years, use those older rounds at the first opportunity, maybe getting some practice in at the shooting range.
Vibrations can damage ignition coil windings and insulation causing shorts or breaks in the secondary windings. The overheating of ignition coils can hinder their ability to conduct electricity. Wear and tear is a common reason for ignition coils failing.
Poorly designed rifles, shotguns, and handguns can fire a round even when the trigger has not been pulled. The most common unintended discharges occur when the firearm is bumped or the safety is moved. Other defective firearms can discharge even with the safety on.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a good day

My daisy model 99 bb gun does not shoot bb’s with any force.
ANSWER : Try shooting a ton of silicone oil into the oil hole on the side of the barrel and then leave the gun sitting on its muzzle over night, then in the morning with the barrel out dry fire it a couple of times and then try it. what this does is expand the leather seal and bring back air pressure. it worked on my 99, good luck
