well sometimes if the acs bolt isn't broke in, it can uncock, i would take everything apart and oil everything, but the bolt it is delrin so no oiling, oiling the bolt can cause swelling, and could be your problem, It could also be spring tension, was it shooting around 300, It is really a trial and error thing, always clean when you have a problem, I don't think it is serious though. good luck

My bolt has never uncocked when it stops a chop.

Oil ur internals, friction will cause stuff to go wrong.

What hopper are you using? A lot of times you will experience uncocking if the hopper can't keep up with how fast the pilot shoots. Force feed, stacked ball hoppers are best. Also uncocking is a sign the ACS is doing it's job stopping a break.

the gyn should recock if the bolt is doing it's job, if broke in properly it will just fire like normally but recock. that is what it is supposed to do.

imma go play like in 2 days so ill see if i broke it in properly... thnxs

EDIT:
i went today and it uncocked like 3 times so w/e im guessing its just the bolt preventing the chop... imma go again tomorrow and see

Oh just noticed ur in miami dude.

Where do u play?

The uncocking doesnt sound normal..My pilot doesnt uncock when it prevents chops, and I have an empire reloader2 so i dont see how ur eggy wouldnt be able to keep up.
