Just got it in yesterday. Won't pump, tried elongating the guide rod, sear won't engage bolt. Spring is of proper size(13), valve spring is in place. Any suggestions besides "send it back"?

You need a fat kid to properly test it. Set some bacon (floppy is best) on a rock in the creek and wait in your blind. They can't resist bacon.

No answer to your pump problem but it is good to see old school paintballers. I still have a couple Splatmasters and a Benjamin Sheridan p-68df. Fun to play with/against the modern guns. One game I had a guy with an angel come up to my bunker with me and ask me to cover him while he bukered someone. I looked at my single shot splatmaster and at him and couldn't help but laugh. Instead he covered me while I bunkered the kid with a gun older than he was.

ETA; Have you contacted Tippmann yet? They might be able to help you out over the phone.

okay has it yet been shot?b does it have any paint debris in the gun? is the pump are stiff or lose?

Gun has been completely stripped, is in perfect condition, oiled and no debris is present. the cocking is smooth, it just won't go all the back and engage the bolt with the sear. I have unscrewed the guide rod and i can rack it to the very rear most with clearance still available on the guide rod to go back further (if it was possible). Valve is in perfect condition, springs are all present.
