Exclamation Spyder pilot 09 bolt

I have a Spyder Pilot 09 that I just got and I have a problem with it. Specifically the problem is the bolt, the bolt pin that is attached to the striker is slamming against the back of the rail that it slides in. This is causing the soft aluminum to bulge up and it is making it increasingly harder to remove or insert the bolt without severely scratching it up. If I can prevent this from happening again then I plan to buy this new bolt; http://www.sundragonpps.com/catalog/...47/7582909.htm to replace the current one that's all scratched.

I'd like to know if this is a common problem and if I can fix it easily or if I should be calling Kingman for a replacement. Thanks

yeah that is strange. You do still have the striker buffer in it right? But this is a first I have heard a problem like this. See if your buffer is still there.

Sounds like the buffer isnt in there. Call kingman about a replacement if you cant find one in the BST.

Is the striker buffer a washer like thing that goes on the striker spring?

its a fairly thick black (some are clear) rubber circle that goes between the back of the striker and the velocity adjuster there is a hole in it for the spring to go through.

Red face Re: Spyder pilot 09 bolt

Ohh I see what happened, I had previously removed the striker in order to oil it. I though had put the buffer in but it had actually shot across my workbench I noticed it later and put it back in, but I had already shot it a few times. So this means that its all caused by my own stupidity...oops. I did manage to sand the lump down smooth again and It works now. I feel like a moron lol

This sounds similar to what is going on with my son's brand new Electra. The pin has deformed from striking against the back of the gun and now we cannot remove the bolt at all. Was it something we did? The gun has only fired about 20 rounds and has never been disasembled.
thanks

You cant lift the bolt pin up to slide it out?
