Posted 18 May 2010 - 08:28 AM
I fire my A-5 and 2 to 3 shots it farts and uncocks it self, at which point i have to recock and repeat. Anyone familiar with this problem?
Many Thanks in advance!

Check that the casing screws are not too loose or too tight.
Is it Egrip? If so is there a magnetic under the noid? Does it have LEDs?

Another theory is make sure you did not swap the main spring and the cocking lever spring. Although usually on that one it does not re-cock at all.

-Broken power tube that is allowing the air pressure to pass around the seal between the hammer and valve
-Bad Hammer O-ring resulting in a similar problem as a broken power tube
-Bad or wrong main spring behind the hammer causing to light of a hit of the valve resulting in too low of pressure to re-cock the gun
-Bad hammer or trigger sear connection (though this would result in a full auto sounding burst but I'm not sure if the Zero-Kick would stop that)
-Lame mods like the Zer-o-kick. I used one once and could not get the velocity up and that was also using a Mad Man spring kit. I got rid of it and put a stock one in
Thats everything I can think of right now.
