View Full Version : Pilot chopping

12-30-2006, 12:19 PM
Okay when I got my pilot (and the upgrades) on x mas I put everything on my gun and went out side and shot 500 paintballs (visible impact from the almighty wallmart:p ) through it without one chop and all was good. yester day I put 1000 paintballs through it, 500 were some kind of camo balls from game face and the other 500 were big balls. and I chopped about 20-30 and that was not fun.:mad: so after cleaning out my gun I broke in my acs bolt and im thinking about putting this in instead of the shocktech. The shocktech is heavier. should I replace the shock tech? also it only chopped in semi not in full auto or burst. Do you think it was the paintballs? And one more question. Sometimes the gun double fires in semi and I noticed this has happened to other people’s gun too. What causes this and how can I fix it? I need answers ASAP.:)

Start off with the basics; clean and lube the hammer, charge the battery. Then if you are still having the same trouble check your trigger adjustment. Is it trigger bounce? Check the solonoid(spelling?), there needs to be a correct amount of space between it and the frame to the sear. Some people have had to shim it with a dime, but I doubt if that is your problem. Lastly, check the sear edge and hammer edge. Perhaps it's not catching correctly?
