Axe: Velocity Issue

Marker has inconsistent velocity or you're not able to adjust the pressure. Check the items below. Reference the manual as needed.

Issue:
Inconsistent Velocity:
  • Battery: Make sure you start with a brand new battery as an old one will cause issues 

  • Pressures: Setting a pressure below 180psi can cause your marker to have an inconsistent velocity. Adjust if necessary 

  • Dwell: Check your dwell and try resetting back to the factory default of 8ms

  • Bolt Assembly Needs Grease: Remove the the bolt assembly and wipe down the bolt, bolt guide, & poppet to remove all of the old grease. Inspect all o-rings for damage & replace as needed. Apply a small amount of new grease to each of the o-rings

  • Check Valve: Confirm the check-valve is not missing. It's a small plastic piece located between the body & air transfer plate (figure 15.3 in the manual). To get to the check-valve, do the following:

    • Remove the fore grip & the grip frame

    • Next, unplug the solenoid from the board

    • Remove the solenoid & male air transfer tube from the air transfer plate by unscrewing them counter-clockwise

    • Remove the air transfer plate screws (6 total - 5/64 allen key)

    • Remove the air transfer plate & inspect the check-valve. Use a small amount of grease to keep it in place

  • Paint: Check that you have a good paint to barrel match and that you are using quality paintballs. See below for a video from Hustle Paintball on getting a good paint to barrel match

Bore Match Paintballs:
Reg Leaks from Bottom Plug:
  • Start by lowering the pressure using the velocity adjustment screw in the front of the ASA/Reg as it may be too high

  • If the ASA/reg is set at 200psi or less and the over-pressurization relief is still leaking, turn the plug cap clockwise a small amount to see if the leak stops

Regulator Recharges Slowly:
  • Check that your air tank is charged & completely screwed in. If it's not screwed in, don't...tell...anyone

Drop-off when firing Multiple Shots:
  • Check that your air tank is charged & completely screwed in. If it's not screwed in, don't...tell...anyone
