Default Re: cocking knob update

I recently got this marker and had my cocking knob come loose during a game and it ended up getting bent. I was already planning on replacing the bolt. My question is that if I get a new bolt will it come with a new cocking knob as well, or will I be forced to get a new cocking knob?

not sure on the cocking knob part. I just bought a rear cocking bolt from alamo city and they milled and extra ball detent in it for my pilot. No more cocking knob problems for me.

Sounds to me like the problem is that the bolt/striker are able to move too far back, maybe a longer striker buffer would help, or the other option is to mill the cocking slot in the top of the body back a bit further.

About the cocking knob shearing off - look at the chanel in the body that the cocking bolt rides in. Look at the ends of the chanels. Does it appear that the cocking knob is hitting the end of the openings at the front/back? If so, take a dremel and elongate the chanel.

Peeps, as Druid said look at the slot. Also look at the top of the frame at the rear of the slot. If you see any silver showing, the knob is hitting there. It is my opinion that is where the problem lies. This gun recoils pretty hard and there is a good bit of free play between the parts of the ACS bolt. Enough that it allows the knob to hit the frame on the top. This is where mine was hitting causing it to eject. I put a longer spring in to keep the dent ball from moving and bent my pin.
There have been several different thing people have done to correct the problem. But seeing that your marker is new you may want to try contacting Kingman first.

Yeah there is silver showing from where the knob had been grinding against it.
I plan on replacing the bolt anyways to see if that might help, but I dont really want to make it rear cocking, so I plan on putting a standard delrin bolt in there. I was just wondering whether or not the new bolt would have a cocking knob with it or if I would have to use the old one for it.

I really don't know the answer to that. But I'd be willing to bet the answer is no it will not.

I don't know either - but take a dremel to the slot and elongate the back and front by 1/4" each. That will stop the shearing effect and use teflon tape or fingernail polish on the cocking knob threads.
