i recently got my atp brand new and have put maybe 100 bbs through it but i notice than sometimes it doesnt fire the bb and then the next pull of the trigger does.....(it shoots just gas) also my slide doesnt lock back after the last bb i have to pull the trigger again and then it shoots nothing and locks back.......whats wrong?

See "philsaudio's" post, last in the thread: http://kwausa.com/fo...l=&fromsearch=1

It appears his issues was resolved with a full, warm mag.  GBB pistols suffer in the cold weather.

The bucking shouldn't be the issue.  Try silicone oil on the hammer assembly and trigger reset bar.  Work in the oil by manually moving the parts, setting and releasing the hammer, etc.  After some time, try firing the gun as normal.  See if there is any improvment.

I think that the impact block, part #18, may not be striking the valve hard enough to release enough gas to drive the slide back.  This would be related to the lubrication that I suggested.

Mine does this too. But I am finding if I keep the mags in my pocket to warm them up I can reload 2x (69BB) and it locks back at least the first two times, but never the fourth.  Yes I am filling the mags 4x if I fill them for 15 seconds and keep them in my pocket. The last one will not have enough umph to lock the slide back.

hey i tried what was said like oiling the hammer and trigger assembly and also warming the magazine i fired 4 magazines of 15 rounds testing and all shot correctly also it is much more accurate after washing and air drying the bucking because of all the lubricant i added.....it seems to work for now so thanks
