Good day all,

Here's my problem, I can be on 3 SHOT RAMPING MODE, 3 SHOT FULL AUTO MODE, AUTO RESPONSE or TURBO and if my trigger isn't pulled all the way back/hard my A-5 will go start shooting rounds like if it was in full auto and wont stop untill I kill the power source (very dangerous I might add) i'm happy I wasn't on the feild when this started to happen. Only SEMI AUTO is not afected by this.

I have:

- Read the owners manual many times.
- PERFORMED A COMPLETE RESET TO FACTORY DEFAULT SETTINGS
- Asked around at my local feild for advice

Now, this is my last resort before I have to call tippmann.



Thanks for your help and your time,

Matchstick

Calling Tippmann is your best bet. If they can't help you with the problem they will have you send in the grip for repair. Tippmann has a great customer service department and I'm sure they can help you.

Either call tippmann and go that route as stated above which might cost nothing. Or go with an ape board which will cost you something.

Have you tried increasing the Dwell?? Not sure if that would do it but worth a shot... if that doesn't do it... take the other posters advice... try Tippman and see what they can do for you...

It's the switch. Check that the metal tab isn't bent or sticking. Also check that you didn't pinch the switch wire in the grip assembly and that the switch wire isn't lose from the board.

Not an uncommon problem to pinch the wire - but it usually ends up breaking the board connection.

1) Replace WAS board with an APE Rampage.

Sigs aren't actually allowed on the Special Ops Forum, so I don't have one.

Try increasing the dwell via the board. If you still can't tune it out. Bend the latter half of the metal leaf (tab) on the switch upward to make better contact with the trigger.

What is most likely occuring is the trigger is bouncing on the switch causing it to register another trigger pull even if the trigger only moves a fraction of a mm. By bending the Leaf it increases the amoun the trigger needs to be pull(from rest) to make the marker fire. Small adjustments with the leaf's pitch here make a big difference.

Yeah Im having the same problem with mine and no amount of tinkering with the switch has solved it.

I have one of these that is doing the same thing but the trigger pull does not close the switch it opens the switch . As of now there is no dwell setting that I have found.
