Do you clean it and oil the o rings regulary?
That would help for sure....

Keep the gun cleaned and lubed. Make sure your tanks aren't low. And if your using regular Co2, you might consider an anti-siphon tube or an HPA tank if you can afford it.

yeah i was planning on buying an hpa tank next month. i was using regular co2. it was quite low but i recall other time when my co2 wasnt low and it still did it. yes i do often clean and oil my gun.

i just think its cause the gun cant keep up with the speed of the trigger.

Well what happens is as you shoot quickly, the liquid co2 in your tank undergoes phase change and takes energy from the surrounding area, in this case heat. So it makes it even harder to phase change and you pressure drops, and you get too low pressure to recock.

update. i got an hpa tank. works so much better. it still uncocks, but not alot. i ordered and recieved an evil detonator reg. i havent used it yet, because i need a hose metric-standard adapter. but im sure that will help too.
