I've posted a lot about my trigger.  I think I may have come up with the problem now.  So when you pull the trigger the contact gets squeezed inbetween whatever the technical term is for the two "fins".  Then it hits the other contact.  I'm wondering if somehow as the gun is fired the "fins" get closer together making it harder to pull the trigger?

It's a weird theory, but I'm beginning to think it's the case.  Thoughts?

It could be possible.  I have seen some members report that their trigger pull was too tight due to either a misaligned switch assembly or the contacts fins are too tight.

Assuming they are too tight, should I worry about them breaking?  Any idea what could be making them tighten up as I shoot?  The trigger is perfect when there's no battery.

Your female trigger contacts are probably squeezed a little tight from the factory.
Better closer together than farther apart. No dirty joke intended.
When they are farther apart, the contact may not even get made between the contacts, thus no circuit at all.
As long as everything is working, you should be just fine.
Trigger pull should actually loosen up as you use your gun over time.

If it makes a difference, my sons gun had this happen but it git worse to the point that I couldn't even pull the trigger.  It was progressive.  It started pulling strange and then even I couldn't use it.  Opened it up and the contacts had closed.  Not quite sure how or why but they did.  Spread them apart again and they have never done it again.  It acted exactly as you described.

Maybe it has something to do with just general physics of electricity.  For example if you have two negative fins connected to some sort of rod and you have a positive charge hit it, they will contract.  I'm not sure that really applies to this but perhaps over time they will close up.  Especially in full auto where you have a constant current.

Ok guys, I know this is an older thread I'm restarting. I have a fairly new SR7 that is used only for CQB games that are Semi only. The trigger pull starts out just fine and as time goes on the trigger will just lock up. Put the gun down for a while to cool off and she begins to work properly again. I have spread the contact arms further apart as suggested.  Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Yes, try a different battery.  That may very well be the issue.
