Problems with T68 Gen3 Pistol
« on: August 21, 2012, 02:52:39 PM »
I've been having problems with my T68 pistol jack hammering (I think that's the right term...it continuously tries to fire, but doesn't recock). I've tried for almost a year now to fix it, and have contacted RAP4 tech support twice during that time, but I still haven't figured out the problem. I purchased a seal kit and replaced every part that was included in the kit, and changed the bolt o-ring with a polythene tank o-ring (techs said the bolt uses tank o-rings). I have tested the marker with both CO2 cartridges and nitrogen using a remote line, but both result in the same thing. I have even made sure the velocity bolt wasn't too far in or out, but the problem persists.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could try to fix this? Any input would be appreciated.

Usually, when there is a problem with jack hammering, the hammer o-ring could be worn or damaged so you should see if that's the problem. When it's damaged, it won't recock consistently or not at all.

If your main spring is too weak from being left in a cocked position compressed it might not be opening the valve long enough to reset the sear. Try to swap out the spring.

I'll try switching the hammer o-ring again, maybe I just replaced the one on there with another damaged one. Also, I never would've thought that the spring could be the problem...I'll see if I can scrounge up a replacement spring and if not I'll place an order for a new one. Thanks for the help.
