    Newbe here
    First time out with my son and his 2nd hand tippmann a5.
    First thing we gassed it up and it sounded really good and shot straight on the range.
    Then out in the field the adjustable stock fell off, then the trigger would not work.
    A spring and piston(?) had fallen out, found them then the cyclone would not auto feed, another player took it to bits but we could see nothing wrong.
    Thinking it may be the ratchet as we have air from the feed side, i have seen the techt upgrade kit but at £80 it seems a luxury.

    Where to start? I'm thinking new standard ratchet bits and possibly new soft feeder blades

    Any other ideas?
    Thanks
    Ray

    Thank you.
    I have just had a look myself, if you push the blades just a tiny bit they move when the marker is fired, no movement at all without a tiny push
    Thinking new o rings, re oil and try again

    The upgraded Techt Q.E.P.H can i not just drill holes to copy that?

    Probably. I was tempted to try that but couldnt be bothered in the end because it worked as it was. [​IMG]
