'09 Electra, in semi mode, continues to fire after I stop walking the trigger
 
Hello,

Did quite a bit of searching on the internet and on this forum specifically to see if anyone had this problem and came up with nothing. Here's my problem:

I've got an '09 Electra. Always shoot in semi, walk the trigger for speed. Occasionally, when I stop walking the trigger, the marker continues to fire as if it's ramping. It'll last anywhere from 1-4 seconds. It's super annoying because a. the marker is essentially out of my control, b. I don't want to be ramping or doing anything like that in a game, c., it wastes a ton of paint.

I have no clue what's causing this. I'll list the stuff I've got on/in the gun that may be pertinent:
Regulator: stock
Bolts: stock
Board: stock
Striker spring: highest (red) tension Trinity (although my gun did this before I swapped the spring out, I believe)
Battery: Spyder's 9.6v battery
Tank: HPA, Guerilla air aluminum w/ Myth
Hopper: Evo 3 w/ Z-board

I recently replaced a pinched o-ring in my reg, otherwise I regularly oil the striker o-ring, ASA o-ring, barrel o-rings, etc. I enjoy cleaning the gun so I do it after each weekend of play.

Any help would be appreciated. I'm thinking the board would be the first thing I'd eliminate by swapping it out temporarily (or buying a new one).

Additional note:
I'm missing my trigger's post travel adjustment screw; the gun did not ship with one. That's a separate issue but it could be related.

Thanks,
Mike T.

After that nice long post, your additional note is the reason it's bouncing. Mechanical bounce to be specific. Get the appropriate screw, install and adjust it, keep the trigger from hitting the microswitch when it moves as firing, and the bounce will go away -

Thanks a lot for the response. I'll get that screw in ASAP. I emailed Spyder about it but no response - may have to call them.

So you're saying without the post-travel screw (closest to the handle), the trigger's "feathering" the microswitch repeatedly after I'm walking? I was guessing the lack of that screw might cause one or two extra shots to be fired rather than a couple dozen.

Bounce is a common prob with alot of electronic markers period. It's why alot of aftermarket boards offer a bounce setting. With these settings, the higher up the setting, the less chance of bounce. Most times bounce is caused by having the trigger adjusted too close to the microswitch. Your marker on the other hand has nothing at all to stop it from continually hitting the switch, hence your prob -

Welks ;)

Thanks a lot for the explanation! I'll contact Spyder so I can get myself one of those screws. Have a good one.

The screw closest to the grip makes the trigger closer to the mico
switch. So if he doesn't have one that means he has the most distance possible in between the trigger and the switch. So it may not be that.
