Question Electra 08 sear prob

HI y'all, i´ve bought last weekend an electra, all day long shoots great on direct co2.. this saturday, i took it off my backpack to get ready and play, and $)%/&·) something´s wrong..

when i pull the trigger the solenoid does not fully hit the sear, my friend has a RS and I switch solenoids and works 4 about 5min or so.. and it did it again..

sometimes it does hit the sear and the hammer get loose, but once in a while..

I have lube it, loved it, new tank, kissd it, hugd it, and nothing!! what do you thing it would be? i think is the sear spring that is too hard, but i was playing last weekend all day long w/o any problem. thanks!

Yup, try a new battery.

If youre using a rechargeable 9.6v, get it a fresh charge. Playing all weekend long might have drained it.

To get the most out of your 9 Volt battery on a Electra take the coil set pin and grind it down to an overall length of 24mm or .945 inch remember not to grind it too short or you may not have enough pin length to push on the sear.

The increased gap between the sear and coil set pin allows the pin to accelerate with enough force to trip the sear properly even with a power supply that's below 8.5 volts.

I personally had a battery down to 8 volts and was still able to trip the sear before I had to replace the battery.

it seems that on mine it requires more force to trip the sear-more than normal I would say.I push on the sear where the set pin would normally push & it's hard to trip it,i have to use a small screwdriver to push it.
It's very frustrating.
any suggestions?
