View Full Version : not recocking

03-04-2007, 08:12 PM
we bought 3 pilot acs the other day. first time out 2 worked reasonably well, other lots of probs. now it fires once weakly, then wont automatically recock. took apart and oiled oring, cleaned chamber, switched co2 tanks, same results. then after doin this 3 or 4 times, it goes full auto for 6 or 8 shots, then back to not recocking. any ideas?????

Thats a tough one because it sounds to me like there is a problem with your operating pressure. If you tried a new, full, tank and it still does that then its got to be something else. Pilots don't come with regulators so the operating pressure should be fine. Take the trigger frame off and inspect the sear, make sure its not rounded off. If you can't find any damage to the bolt, striker or sear, give Kingman a call I'm sure they can help. Good luck.

There is a little filter between the ASA and the braided line, it might be clogged. I had recocking issues until I removed it. This could cause flow issues which would cause it not to recock.
