When I dry fire the gun, it works perfect for the most part, But sometimes it will do short bursts of two shots when I only pull the trigger once and sometimes it will start venting gas but I can stop it by racking the slide back. When i load up a mag and shoot, It shoots a bb and blows back but doesn't make the hammer go back so to shoot another shot I have to take the mag out, cock the slide and put the mag back in. Sometimes when it blows back it will pull the hammer back and I'm able to shoot again but then it does the same not pulling the hammer back thing again. Sometimes it also does that burst of shots and vents gas sometimes too, I've even had the slide get stuck once when shooting. I have very liberally lubed all the parts of the gun, and made sure the rubber bumper is installed correctly.

You can wash the bucking under hot running water and some dish washer soap.  Then let air dry and it should shrink back to size but if it fails you will have to replace it.

Is the hop-up all the way on if so turn it down and see if that corrects it?  Have you used silicone in the inner barrel at the bucking.  If either answer is yes the bucking could be the problem.

If you are shooting multiple bb's with one trigger pull after some misfires, then its probably caused by a swollen bucking caused by silicone oil.  A little silicone oil should be used in a GBB gun but NEVER in the bucking or inner barrel.

Unfortunately, people tend to use silicon oil as a cleaner when it is a lubricant.  In the future simply use water to clean your barrel and dry thoroughly.  Silicon oil and KWA buckings don't mix well.

Replacement is the best option but sometimes if the swelling is not too severe, you can wash it under warm to hot running water with some dish soap. Then let air dry and it can shrink back to size.

The video on this KWA site tells you to swab the bucking. What the?
