Well, too late, he's already got a Blast Bazooka... and if he reinforces the firing pin that should make it just as good. But he didn't ask about the firing pin. So why did you suggest a Big Blast if that's the only problem it solves?
N34, my guess is you're having a valve leak. I had that problem at first with mine. To check this, just pump the gun up as much as you can and hold your ear next to the valve, as close as you can get it. I could barely hear the air coming out, but it was coming out all the same. Another way you can check this is just to leave the gun pumped for a couple hours or a day or so, and then fire it and see if anything comes out.
If this is the problem, then here's what I ended up doing:
- Hold the trigger and blow air in the front. This gets rid of any crap plastic that could be on the valve, holding it open.
- Spray some lube (a can of Silicon Spray is about $3, I believe) into the valve while holding it open.
If that doesn't work I can't help you any further. I guess you could always try the underwater trick or putting on a new pump (hey! maybe this
will be useful...).
Best of luck.
