Ok, I have a basic combustion with a flint type ignition. It used to shoot it and there would be a big bang. Now it fires and the only noise you here is the potato going up the barrel? What is going on, I dont mind the noise and it makes my gun "feel" underpowered.

What are the specs of it? Chamber size, barrel lenght etc. What proplent are you useing? And the reason is there might be to much fule in the chamber and it is makeing it rich. Try a little less amount of fuel.

switch to using better fuel
