View Full Version : Wierd Rapid Firing Act

04-20-2006, 10:23 PM
So I turned my Pilot on the other day and went to fire in just Semi mode and it acted like it was stuck in an auto firing mode. It was just rapid firing probably as fast as it could. Then it ran out of CO2. Refilled the tanks and installed them. Wouldn't fire cause the bolt wasn't cocked back. Cocked it back and fired it. Did the same thing for a few seconds and then stopped. Now it is acting normal again.

Anybody ever had that happen? I doubt its normal and wonder what could have caused it??:confused:

Well your tank was probably low the first time, so there wasn't enough pressure to recock the marker. Not sure why it'd have done it for a few seconds with a new tank, but it seems fine now correct?

Its pretty normal acctually, if your tank gets too empty before you have it refilled, it'll do it to anyone.

well, he said it did it with a full tank too...that would tell me he didn't grease/oil the striker O-ring

also, the trigger frame might be loose on your gun ... or your sear or striker might be rounded out

it could be blowback , since its so strong, i have the same problem you could adjust the trigger forward a little because it could be activating the switch and that might help, and if thats not the problem then i would have no idea

My friend had that happen to him when it went to full auto like that. do u have a Pilot ACS? His did that because he pulled the trigger to lightly. he pulls it harder now and its fine. but b4 it would do like 4 roundd bursts and stuff. it was pretty sweet
