I have one of the rocking rap 4 spyder electronic triggers and the solenoid isnt engaging all the way to drop the hammer and release the bolt. Any way to fix this or do i need a new solenoid and if so where can i get one i tried rap 4 havent heard back from them. Btw its a 2005 spyder xtra

you may be able to shim the solenoid

I tried a washer in between the solenoid and frame is that the right place? and how thick do u recommend.

Ok ill give it a shot i noticed when i pushed it in by hand it was working so i tried a washer. But no luck with the washer maybe its to thick or thin. Does anyone know where to get a new solenoid though?

Back off on the main spring tension. To much & the solenoid wont trip.

Your talking about the spring in the lower chamber, not the bolt chamber correct? If so i put the weakest spring in from my kit and back it all the way out to double check. I had the handle off the gun and it wouldnt collapse the hammer. Im pretty sure the solenoid is just worn out and i need a new one.

WHat type of battery?

9 v just put a new duracell 20 dollar one in the solenoid clicks but as i watch it. It doesnt fully engage releasing the hammer. Tried to shim it with washers and coins but in order for it to engage enough it wont re-cock. Want to make sure its the solenoid before i spend 40 plus on one.

you need a 9.6v battery

it had this battery in it. Amazon.com: HEAVY DUTY BATTERIES -- 9 VOLT -- CD/1: Automotive I put one of the duracell procells in it just like it. Maybe try jumping 12v to it to see if the is underpowered from the solenoid getting weaker?

STOP RIGHT NOW!! Do NOT put 12 volt to the board. It will fry it & kingman will NOT replace it. Go out & but the Kingman 9.6v battery & charger.

I didnt put anything too it i was just asking. Kingman contacted me about it to get a hold of there techs.
