View Full Version : is this a problem?

04-24-2006, 07:23 PM
the night that i got my mr2 i was happy and took it home. when i got home i went to go and break it in. ive done it with my other guns by just putting a wooden rod or something in it but this time it would not fire untill i pulled the rod out? could this be a problem or is it normal?

thanks for any help that comes my way!

May be your not getting enough air into the gun? I dunno, I'm a beginner, just trying to think of simple stuff.

BTW, this prolly isn't the problem, but don't forget to replace the detents unless you have black ones already.

...Rod is too fat...try something alot smaller like the end of a barrel swab. If my finger (putting it into the firing chamber from the feed neck) puts alittle pressure on the bolt in the MR2 when I fire it...it doesnt re-cock for the next shot. Is this the problem you are having?

well the rod is smaller than the barrel swab. i know that when i pull it out if fires and recocks

Yes...but are you touching the bolt with the rod when you try to fire it? If so it wont fire properly.

im sorry but i dont know what you mean by "touching the bolt with the rod"?

... he's saying .. after you cock the bolt back .. do you have the wooden rod against the bolt ... rather than far away from it ... meaning is it going right towards the velocity adjuster/where the stock is ... or left to where the barrel threads are ??

He's saying you need to go to the left ...

you are not giving the bolt room to release

ok thanks, im not quite sure which way the rod was goin. ill give it a try and see what happens

well i tried breaking it in with the rod going to the left. that didnt work either. are there any other ideas that you guys have, or have none of you broken your bolts in?

You can just do it the other way, like take the bolt out of the gun and stretch the spring up and down about 500 times, saves air/CO2

yea but for a person like me that just takes too long! i guess ill just forget about breaking it in and just play.

what hopper do you have?

if you have a fast enough hopper, then you shouldn't even have to worry about the bolt being worn in.

im runnin an empire b on it

Well, in the time it took us to diagnose this, you would have been long done breaking it in :D

... that is true ... but lazy people like us ... are just that way .. :)

OK how about this ... take the rod out of the chamber and just shoot ... if it works ... then stick it on the far side away from the bolt and shoot ... not really sure what your doing wrong .. ??
