Hi,
As indicated above, I'm having trouble with the bolt stopping after the last round. This is the what I do:
1.) I pull the mag follower down, I load the BB's in a perfect double stack as required, release the follower
2.) I flip the mag upside down, load green gas in for 3-5 seconds, take a break, repeat until the total is around 25 seconds
3.) I pull the bolt back, go through the mag, and when I get to the last round, the bolt goes back, and dry fires
Any ideas as to why this happening. The warranty is still good I believe. I use high quality BB's, green gas, etc. Is it the magazine follower, the bolt, or something I'm doing.
Thanks,
Daniel

Open the bolt and check out the air nozzle. If the the little bb pusher thing is rounded, chipped, or worn down it will glide over the mag follower and not lock on empty. The only way to fix it is to buy a new cylinder. This has happened to me twice. I don't even think it's worth sending in because it's such an easy fix.

Btw there was also a lot of white gunk in there. I tried to clean it but its so fine that its not easily removable. I've heard people say that it hasn't affected their performance in any way but I'll try to get most of it off anyway. So do you think the mag follower's are fine. I have the mag that came with it and a new mag and both do exactly the same thing. The bolt will barely catch about 25% of the time, but if I move the mag just a little or even just brush the mag release the bolt won't stop. If I hold the mag in place it will sort of work, but if I let go, the bolt won't stop either. Also, any tutorials on how to replace the cylinder? And should I buy just the cylinder ($12) or the assembly ($18)? Should I replace the mag followers as well? I finally got it to feed right and it works great and I love it, so I'm a little worried about this problem. I want it resolved.

I just got the complete assembly. Less stuff to switch out while fixing it. Plus you get extra left over parts.

You have to remove the bolt and at the back of it there should be three screws. Unscrew them and you should be able to pull the guts out of the bolt. Unhook the return springs from the cylinder. Then you switch the cylinders out. Put it back together and you're good to go.

Wow that's easy. And as long as my followers are ok, then it should work. Great thanks for your help! :clap:
