M18C: First couple shot problems...M18C + fresh mag problems
Posted 31 October 2012 - 02:11 PM
It's about 95% complete, but I run into some problems with a freshly filled mag. One symptom is that pulling the trigger release the hammer, but nothing happens. For the most part, I think that may have gone away, after I bent my hammer spring out a bit to give it a little more tension. The second and more common symptom is that the first 2-3 shots have very little blow back. It will shoot the first bb, but not blow back hard enough to load the next. Also the FPS will be at about 260~275fps with 0.20g I can manually press the release valve to let some gas out and the M18C fires perfectly fine and can still finish a full mag. FPS returns to approx 320-325fps.
I've checked rocket valve, cylinder and sealed the cylinder pin with a little bit of super glue.
Any ideas on how to get it to fire properly with a fresh mag? I'm ready to order a new hammer housing and trigger trasnfer bar, but if there are any ideas before i spend money on parts it would be appreciated. *note*I cannot send this into KWA as the slide (which is functioning perfectly in my other -ahem-18C frame), does not have an orange tip.
