"It might just be a lemon sadly it happens occasionally and though you might not be able to get a refund without a receipt it is a lot easier to get an exchange without a receipt if you still have the packaging. If you did get rid of the packaging already you should look into the timing issue that's common with the eat. it's an issue where the dart gate doesn't get out of the way in time and can cause the dart to get damaged during the forward prime, also if that is your issue it can shorten the life of the dart gate. The fix is just to glue a thin piece of plastic to the ramp at the front of the bolt sled." - Telerran

 

Can someone please help me on this? I do not know where the bolt sled and the ramp is, etc. :( Not good at the internals and stuff like that? Please show me what to do with pictures!! Thanks!

Have you tried a search for the unknown terms? 

 

From what I know,

the bolt sled is the frame around the barrel.

The ramp is the curved part at the front of sled.

It pushes the dart tooth/gate down as the blaster is primed.

The dart tooth/gate prevents darts from falling out of the barrel mid prime.

 

Idk. Hope this helped. Sorry it took so long for someone to reply.
