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. :

This is a fairly common problem with AK-variant guns. The problem is typically either the selector switch (lever) is loose and needs to be tightened or the selector gear is not properly engaging the gearbox and selector plate. Try tightening your selector switch.
If your gun does nothing when you pull the trigger, even on a full charge, you may have blown the fuse to your gun. It could be that: The gears were jammed and the gun is trying to send too much energy to free up the gun. The wiring tangled with the motor pinion causing a short circuit.
Semi-Auto airsoft guns, like other firearms fire one round every time you squeeze the trigger. Fully Automatic airsoft guns, like other firearms continue to fire as long as you have the trigger pulled back.
If you are inside and are shooting outside the building, you may use full auto only if your barrel is breaking the outside plane of the building. This means your barrel needs to be sticking out of the window or door to shoot full auto. Switch to semi auto if you are preparing to enter a building.
Airsoft Gun FPS FAQ

Regular airsoft pistols can have as low an FPS as 160 with high-quality revolvers going as high as 350. Generally, if you want your pistol to be more accurate over a longer range, you should go with a 300-350 revolver.

Blow Back is a mechanism that imitates the strong recoil of the bolt during shooting. This recoil is typical for firearms, and the use of this system in an airsoft gun increases its realism.
You can safely leave most batteries in your airsoft gun provided that you look after them and do not leave them entirely empty for an extended timeframe (typically no more than a couple of weeks).
What`s the Risk? Those who do not wear eye protection are at risk of eye injury, according to the AAP. Airsoft pellets that strike the eye can cause scratches, painful pooling of blood inside the eye, lens dislocation or blindness.
Just as you remove BBs from your airsoft when not using it, you should also remove the CO2 cartridge. Thanks to this, the seals in the airsoft gun will last longer. You should also remember to clean the airsoft gun regularly and properly maintain the seals.
Pellet guns fire metal projectiles, or pellets, that are designed to penetrate their targets — whether those targets are small animals or inanimate objects. For this reason, pellet guns are a top choice of small game hunters, pest control enthusiasts, and sport shooters alike.
Gas airsoft guns are the most popular type of airsoft gun for several reasons. Features: Gas-powered pistols are small, making them more convenient to carry around on the go. In addition to the size advantage, they are powerful and conserve gas more than blowback guns.
Get ready to experience the ultimate in fully automatic BB guns with the Crosman AK1. Featuring full-auto and semi-auto options powered by dual CO2 powerlets, the Crosman AK1 flings BBs at 430 fps and 1400 rounds per minute.
Typical airsoft guns shoot BBs that can travel 100 to 200 feet while remaining accurate, but with upgrades however, the range can extend to 200 to 300 feet.
“Around 350 feet per second is a figure you want to keep in mind,” says Beeman. “At 300 to 400 fps, that`s where penetration occurs in a human skin. Below 350 fps, it is generally considered capable of only limited harm. Above 350 is considered very harmful or lethal.
200 – 250 FPS – this is the speed mostly prevalent in handguns. As these are designed to be used up close, you will feel the hit, but it won`t hurt much even if it hits exposed skin.
As a result, the most common airsoft site limits were established as follows: Fully-automatic gun: 350fps (1.14 joules) Semi-automatic gun: 400fps (1.88 joules) Bolt action gun: 500fps (2.32 joules)
Airsoft guns are often designed to realistically resemble actual guns, making it difficult to distinguish them despite the orange muzzle tips in some jurisdictions. This has led to police shooting airsoft gun handlers believing these are real firearms and a deadly threat.
Airsoft and BB guns, unlike Nerf guns, are meant to look realistic, and are often modeled after a real gun. BB guns shoot steel or lead pellets, called BBs. Airsoft guns fire a bigger, lighter, plastic pellet.
They Hurt More Than Lighter Ones

As mentioned before, heavy BBs retain a lot of their energy when they leave the gun. So the hit hurts a tad more than it would with a lighter one. You can`t use them for close-quarter combat as they`ll inflict a lot of pain on your opponents.

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.

This gas blowback airsoft pistol is designed with a full auto-only mode that allows the gun to fire rapidly, providing players with a significant advantage in airsoft games.
It is recommended that when storing green gas airsoft magazines for periods of time that you leave a little bit of gas in the magazine, in order to keep the seals lubricated and prevent dust and dirt from getting inside the magazine.

All airsoft guns must be installed with an orange tip that is at least 6mm long to distinguish them from a real firearm.

My gun just beeps when i pull the trigger even when hooked up to hpa.battery is new.last time i used the gun just before it messed up i had it hooked to o2 and it would fire then beep ,i have a anti syphon tube installed to. the air shot out the asa instead of the reg when i took off the tank.usually gun holds air with tank off then you shoot it to get rid of stored air,this time it shot out the asa????
ANSWER : You have probably messed up your solenoid, did you fire the marker straight up with the o2? I would make sure that all of the board settings are back to factory default especially the dwell and reattempt with compressed air. If the marker is still not firing get your hands on a new solenoid for it.

I have the Intex Sand/Pump pool filter Model SF 20110. It’s been running real great for the last 4 months. However recently it has been tripping the internal overloads and I have found the pump motor to be very hot when I put my hand against it. I have tried several different solutions, such as a level ground platform that was clear of any obstructions, made sure that the motor vents under the motor was clear of anything that would prevent air flow. I used a non electrical type of lubricate on the impeller. When I would turn on the pump the rotor would not turn but only would hum very loudly and then slowly begin to turn. I also noticed that the motor’s rotor shaft would not turn to freely due the tightness around the rotor’s shaft. After using the lubricate the shaft would turn a little easier. I used an amp meter on the incoming voltage line and the motor would run at 4.5 amp. And yet it still overheated and tripped the motor overloads. I can only think that the motor is still not getting enough ventilation. I have check and cleared all the incoming lines and found nothing block the pumps input or output lines. Any suggestion?
ANSWER : I just looking into this issue my self. The pump cools itself by a internal fan, which is run by the motor. Well I took the housing cover off to find out all the fan blades have broken off and were setting in the base of the pump. Once you remove the fan blades from covering the air intake, it might be fine. I will find out my self once summer gets here.

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

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

TC5000 and after extended use I smell burning and upon removing the belt cover and drive belt I felt of the motor on the motor side of the drive pulley and it was ”red-hot”, obviously the source of the smell of the burning. The motor spins freely without any rubbing noise. The drive pulley (motor side) and the tread pulley appear to be alligned. One curious thing is that the threaded motor output shaft is recessed about 3/8” from the outside edge of the pulley. Could it be the bearing on the pulley side of the motor? I am dumbfounded as to what the solution might be. Note that I could not enter the exact product as my model seemed to be invalid. My model is the TC5000. Thanks [email protected]
ANSWER : Just because it spins freely doesnt mean it cant have a shorted winding. Id send it back where it came from or at least replace the motor.

Mar 12, 2010 – Could it be the check valve? I took it off and the flap appears to be working correctly. This well has been here a long time. Never given me any problems. I do have galvenized couplers on the discharge and intake sides. Old. Could these be leaking even though they show no sign of water? The discharge is able to hold 30 pounds easily overnight. I do not hear any vacuum in the intake when I take it off. Could the pipe to the well have a leak? I know I would have to insert a sleeve bnut I do not want to go through the hassle if I do not have to. I had put on a brand new pump from the hardware store that did the same thing so I think that would elliminate the pump as being the problem.
Mar 12, 2010 – I have a 3/4hp flotec convertible jet pump. It is able to hold 30lbs pressure on the discharge side as the primie easily for 24 hours. It is not able to pull water from the well whcih has been here for years. i disconnected it for the winter and rehooked it up. The galvanized couplers on the discharge and pump side are old but do not appear to be leakeing as I taped them well. The check valve seems to be functioning well as I took it off and the flap works correctly. The well is not pulling watrer. there does not appear to be a vacuum on the check vale when I losen it. could the check valve be bad? I am aware I might have to resleeve the well, but do not want to hassle with this if I do not have to. I want to eliminate everything else first. i put another brand new pump on it to see if it was that. That partiuclar pump which was the same thng did not work either.

ANSWER : Your well has gone dry it seems. It has happened to my before. At first the new pump I purchased that did not pump I took back for exchange and still no water. I finally gave in and called the well experts and I was told the well was dried up
