G6R: Shooting Issue

Marker will not fire or has a problem firing. Check the items below and reference the manual as needed.

Issue:
Aired Up with No Leaks & Won't Fire:
    • Battery: Make sure you start with a brand new battery in your gun as an old one will cause issues. 

    • ASA: Check that the pin on your ASA is making contact with your air tank and air is pressurizing your gun.

    • Vertical Adaptor (HPR): If you recently serviced your High Pressure Regulator, disassemble and verify it was properly re-assembled, including the spring stack washers. These should be stacked as follows )()()()(  

      • Note: The retaining o-ring above the shim stack does not require lubrication.

    • Connectors: Check that all connectors going to the main board are properly seated (battery harness, eyes, solenoid and on/off button).

    • Micro-Switch: Turn on your gun with the eyes off, pull the trigger and confirm that the solenoid clicks. If it doesn't, check your micro switch. If the micro-switch is ok, check the solenoid as indicated below.

    • Pressures: Using a pressure tester, verify your LPR is set to 70psi and your HPR is sitting at 180psi. Adjust if necessary.

    • Dwell: Check your dwell and try resetting back to the factory default setting of 6ms.

    • Solenoid: Remove your trigger frame and check that the hose going into the solenoid isn't being pinched. Next, press the red button on the solenoid to cycle your marker. If it doesn't cycle, your solenoid might be bad. If you suspect there is debris inside your solenoid, reference the Marker Leaks from Solenoid section of the G6R Frame Leak page for details on servicing your solenoid.
