I can't guarantee this is your issue but it was mine.  There is a spring that holds down the bolt catch so when the bb follower of the mag engages, the bolt will lock back.  If this spring comes off or breaks then the bolt will lock back with each shot.  This happened to my gun and frankly I was more comfortable sending it to KWA to be fixed than doing it myself.  I recommend you do the same.

Oops, need to clarify.  It doesn't lock back after each shot, but frequently enough that I have to hit the release about 10 time a mag.  When yours broke, would the bolt catch (the action, not the part), even if there was no mag inserted, when you pulled the charging handle?

I opened it up and found that the spring on the bolt catch was out of place, so I put it back and it should work fine :D
I should also be getting the correct springs in the mail sometime soon.

Thanks for everyone's help!
