T-Storm Issues

Noob here with some questions...

My wife and I just got into paintball (mostly capture-the-flag and woods ball) last year and she is having some issues with her marker. She has a T-Storm and I think there is something wrong with the trigger frame. For the first couple games, the gun was fine, but after that it started acting up. Now the gun acts like it is full-auto and chops like crazy. It always re-cocks itself, but the longer you hold down the trigger, the more it will fire. It's fast enough so it's almost impossible to fire a single shot. Is this a common problem with this gun, or is there an easy fix? I have already taken out/cleaned/oiled all the major components, replaced o-rings, made sure the tank was full, but nothing seems to help.

Also, I noticed on her gun, when you let go of the trigger it sometimes clicks, and sometimes does not. Mine and all the other guns I have used have never done that. Not sure if that's relevant, but I though I would throw it out there.

Thanks for your help.

i think its because you might be missing a piece. (BE is notorious for this). It really sounds like the Stem Valve to me. see if it is straight, or in the hole right, or if it is even there. its a son of a gun to take off. here is a link to the schematic, http://http://www.brasseagle.com/cus...?item_num=1177
that gives a pretty detailed view of the T-Storm.

If that doesnt work, try changing all the seals, # 33 on the Schematic.

Thanks JT, I was able to take apart the trigger frame and found the problem to be between the seer and the trigger itself. For some reason the seer was getting caugt on the very edge of the trigger so it would stay down, causing the gun to act like full auto. A little work with a file a now it works like a champ!

Education.

Trying to educate myself. I here the word seer mentioned alot on these forums. I looked at the exploded view for this marker, and it's part's list but I don't see the "seer" listed. What is this part, where is it located and what is its purpose.

Thanks in advance.

Honestly, I'm not even sure if I'm using the correct terminology. What I call the "seer" is the little piece of metal that sticks up and catches the striker. When the trigger is pulled, the seer drops, then the spring forces the striker to move forward and hit the valve, which causes the air to force the paint out the barrel and forces the striker back. The striker then bounces off the spring and gets caught by the seer again, re-cocking the gun. Probably more info than what you were looking for, but oh well. The pic below shows the seer sticking up out the trigger frame.



Hope this helps...
