Man, that's bad. First, take it apart. If you can, take pictures and post them here, email them to me if you don't know how. Explaining the problem in more detail can help us make a better diagnosis as well. Sounds to me like it's not holding pressure, maybe you're not pumping it enough? Probably not.

It seems to be semi-like that problem. Is it?

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.

Yeah, that is a huge shot. I wonder why I haven't tried any mods like that?

yes, it turns out mine has that too and with that beautiful article you pointed out to me on the _underground I should be able to fix it. I also plan to k mod it while its open - if I can get enough balloons, they seem to be impossible to find around here.

Yeah, tech soakers site was really good. When I went over to cloud's him cut off most of the valve, so it made a shot very similar to that, but now sadly cloud has lost intrest in soakers and been grasped by paintball :( Good luck fixing your 1500, thats an old gun, im not suprised its having problems.

Ok, but be sure to look for any leaks, that may be why it doesn't hold pressure.

Since you're going to freeze the check valve, are you going to K mod it too?
