the other day my imagines battery died on me,well......i wasnt aware of that before i took it apart to oil it and make sure everything was ok.usually i slide the bolt and hammer in by pulling the trigger to release the sear pin, however since my battery was dead it wouldnt realease....i dont have the reachargable battery but a 9 volt works fine for me. i am 14 and have no way of going anywhere to get a new battery and my parents dont wanna go out just for a battery, so is thier away to get the sear to release that doesnt require a battery?

Um ya, just loosen the 2 screws that hold the trigger frame to the body and the striker will go forward -

and stop using alkalines...the electronics was designed for 9.6V rechargables for a reason. You will suffer board performance issues if you don't.

Woah how did you manage to do that? Too small of an allen wrench?

screws...easy fix for that....take your dremel and put on a cutting disc. Cut a notch for a flat-head screwdriver until you replace the screws.

And if they are coming loose, either add teflon tape to the threads or a lock-washer

you can also loosen the grips and manually accuate the solinoid

If you take off the left grip panel, you should see the big-silver-clicky-thingy-of-Doom. Push forward on the rear plate that extends out and it should release the sear.

If your screw holes that thread into the marker are getting stripped out, then you might want to look into rethreading them to a larger size or installing a Heli-Coil.

"yo"? was that a post? was that supposed to make sense? you must be joking. that's worse than all those fools that just post "lol". at least they seem to know what is going on. but you simply posted "yo". as your first post on this forum ever. come on.

...I think where he is going with the screw thing is that the marker was played with alot while the frame screws were loose, and the threads got hosed up because of that. The Tech prbly soaked 'em up real good with red lock tight and let them dry in the grip frame to get them to hold..I.E., they will never come out again without taking what little bit of threads are left in the frame with them.

Just a guess

i talked to the guy today and he said you were right he did use lock tight....but i thought that was bad....guess not though since it works fine now.

KYLE, a little advise: double posting is bad, posting 5 in a row is a capital sin. Any post that is not relevant is SPAM! Please think before you post and edit a previous post instead of double posting.

And the green Smurf comes from an old Cartoon Network commercial.

do what I said...cut a flat-head screw driver slot in the head of the screw...then heat it up to fry the locktite. It'll come out.
