Sounds like "burping/jackhammering" to me.

You aren't running a high enough pressure to recock.


Your tank is low.


There is damage to your sear and/or striker.


The sear spring under the sear is either gone or doesn't have enough spring to push the sear back up.


Internals could be dirty and not well lubed.

There are a couple possibilities. To me it sounds like my TL-X when I had my regulator turned down too low.

naw it will fully cycle and recock, takes a real long time to stop shooting tho. ill check the sear.

switch bounce?

definately burping and shunut has covered pretty much all the scenarios. check those and get back to us.

no. mine did that when i had it at high rates of fire on psp. try lowering your bps and then try the psp. if it still has the problem then i dont know.

That happened to me with a parrana rental about a month ago. Shunnut pretty much covered everything that could be wrong. When it happened to me there was a full tank of air and it cycled untill the hopper was empty.

switch bounce?
possible, cuz i had to stick gum on the switch to connect a wire to the prong at a tourney.

and no its not burping, if i let it cyle long enough it would stop and recock eventually.

sounds like the sear, sear pin, or noid needs a good cleaning and lubing.
