09-08-2007, 09:00 PM
k guys...its rly wierd...and i dont no if its just because the pilot is not the most expensive gun, but it seems that when im in semi-auto mode, i can push the trigger to a certain point that the gun will start firing automatic...like...i push the trigger so the little buttom there is halfway down..and the gun starts firing auto....
Now this isnt rly a problem..caz it not like i take the time during games to find the point of automatic fire...but does anyone know why this happens???? caz its actually kinda funny..

Sounds like you have found the sweet spot. A sweet spot is when the recoil will move the marker in your hands enough to trip the switch again.

^^either that, or he has a board problem. idk. doesnt happen to me
What your experiencing is bounce. Bounce is when the force of the marker firing causes the trigger to hit more than once. It is perfectly normal on a stock Pilot. The two ways to lower bounce would be to adjust your trigger or go low pressure. I would suggest adjusting your trigger because going low pressure can cost between 100 and 200 dollars.
