Hey I got another problem. I was playing over at a local paintball field the other day and on one of the last games, my striker bolt plug snaps in half when im shooting. I lost everything from that to the striker bolt. That's not the end though. When I got home, I started taking the back apart to make sure there wasn't any other problems. When I got to the ACS bolt I tried to pull it out, but for some reason it gets about 1/4 of the way out and locks onto something. It won't come out. I mean it's never done this until now. Before this, the bolt came out easy. What might be the problem?? Please help!
Gonna need a picture on this one, that will make it alot easier to help ya out.

hey i got it
It may have something to do with the sear holding it back. Heres what you can do, turn on the trigger frame, and as your pulling out the bolt fire the trigger. That may solve your problem.

you know i tried that and it doesn't seem to work. When i try to pull it out though, it does make a locking noise so I know it's catching onto something
Maybe try taking off your grip frame, then you might be able to see if there is anything up there.

hey there was nothing in there but I think i figured out the problem. Now it gets about halfway out, but I think the ACS bolt is getting stuck where its coming out. do I need to like grease it up or something for it to come out or what?

try pulling the trigger a couple of times as you're pulling out the bolt. Something else you might try is to remove the barrel and vertical adapter and see if there is anything jammed from that side.

He tried that already. Hmm It shouldn't need any grease or oil. Your sure that you didn't find anything in there? I have no idea what the problem could be. Sorry.

hey don't worry about it, i just got it. somehow I was messing with it, and I gave it a pull and it slid out. so I'm still confused on what it was but thanks for you guys help.
Sometimes thats all it takes. Good that you got it out, and if you ever have anymore questions, don't be afraid to ask!:)

Ok, well the situation w/ the bolt plug... no helping that, my pilot doesnt even have one because it is the newer version of the pilot and Kingman must have realised that they have been breaking off. (My buddy just told me the same thing happend to him) And there is like a piece of metal about an inch ling inside the bottom barrel section of your gun. It deals w/ the trigger. Try turning on your gun, and pull the trigger. While doing this tip the gun upside-down and pull on the ACS bolt. It might just work.
