Kmp9 Wont Fire
Posted 09 April 2012 - 10:54 AM
The gun will not fire in any firing mode.
When the charging handle is pulled, the bolt will not go forward fully.
The gun is in good shape, and nothing is wrong with the mags.
The hammer wont release when the trigger is pulled, but I suspect that's a feature built into the gun, to prevent the hammer from moving if the bolt isn't closed.
I see no BB's in there, so I'm out of ideas as to what is wrong.
Anyone have an Idea?

I have already cleared the BB from the chamber, and have removed the top cover.
Its really weird. It seems like something is in the way, but i cant see anything.

okay, pictures, the resolution isnt perfect, but hopefully it will do.
I'm going to reassemble it, see if the problem persists.
EDIT: Yea, problem still persists. The hammer and bolt function perfectly until the alignment pin and its plate go into place.

I don't know how, I don't know why, but that was the problem.
Upon righting its position, the gun fired. So. how do I prevent this from happening again?
Edit: So upon looking into the vlave thing, i noticed that 1, the screw wasnt screwed in,
and 2, that the springs that are supposed to be thier arent.

Edit: I retract that statement. The 87's aren't disconnected. They snapped. Which only answers half the question. The last question is how did 133 come unscrewed?
Do I have to order the 87's through the Pro shop, or can I buy them elsewhere?

As for part #133, it may have come loose if no loctite was applied to it at the factory. The vibrations generated when firing the gun could eventually cause the screw to come loose and back itself out. I've done a lot of automotive work and it can happen to screws and bolts in cars sometimes. The typical remedy is to put loctite on the threads of the screw/bolt before reassembly. I would recommend getting some blue loctite for reassembling part #133. You can find it at almost any automotive parts store.
