Hey so i bought a HK KWA G36 2gx, and for some reason the trigger would randomly lock up. i would have to switch the gun to full auto shoot it then switch it back to semi and it works. what could be the problem, could the gun be defective or would it just take some tweaking. i just bought the gun less then a week ago so im sure i still have warranty. i was also wondering what type of battery do you guys recommend, i have a 8.4 1600 mah mini right now but im looking for an extra battery, everybody at my local games swear by lipo but i only shoot semi auto so im not worried about RoF too much.

I've used 7.4v lipos that were just as slow as a 8.4v. You're gearbox should not be locking up unless perhaps your battery is dieing out. You may want to try a higher quality or higher voltage battery and see if you have the same problems on semi before coming to any other conclusions.

ok its not locking up exactly it just wont fire sometimes. when im in the middle of a game i will shoot semi then it just stops i pull trigger and does nothing, so i switch it to full auto then back to semi and it works again.

Then maybe the spring that located between the selector plate and cut off lever needs a little stretching.

Yeas. That would be the best course of action. Let the experts fix it for you. And it can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks.

Does full auto ever, hicup as well? Like not fire sometimes?

In terms of having to get something repaired only a week after you purchased it, I totally feel ya on that. I can't tell you how many of my guns I break... the instant I touch them.

are you noticing the selector switch is moved off the semi position when it stop firing?  Is this only happen in Semi?

I had a similar issue when I first got my G36C.  Every so often when switching from full auto to semi the gun would not fire on semi..  As suggested by the manual switching to full auto back to semi should correct the issue.  

I believe the gun just needs some break in time.  I almost never have this issue anymore.

Mine sounds like it is doing close to the same thing, except I just move the selector switch a bit (doesn't line up 100% with the mark for semi) but not far off and it will engage it on semi. I just listen for the click instead of looking at the diagram on the side of the gun.
