Kingman Fenix ACS

I have a Fenix that worked great flawlessly about two years ago. Took it out this past weekend after oiling up the seals and at first it worked great. Then after about 50 balls it stopped firing. It is trying to fire, and you can hear the internal plunger hitting the striker release. I took the grips off and wantched and it is deninetly hitting the stryker release, but it is like it did not have enough power to disengage the release. I tried more oil on the release, and recharged the battery still does not release. Backed off the spring tension as far as it would go without exposing the "o" ring and nothing.

Wondering if this is a common problem and if any advise available.

It appears that the something is wrong with the release mechanism or the junction between them. The system autococks, and when you hit the trigger the plunger is trying to release the bolt, but it does not seem to have enough power. I tried to back off the pressure on the spring so that the catch on the bolt would be pushing on the release with a little less pressure. I tried a replacement spring to no effect. I have looked at other forums and found one string talking about a problem with the selenoid. I am hoping to not have to replace this as it is a $70 part. Is there any way to be sure the condition of the selenoid?

Are there other things to look to?

Is it possible the metal to metal contact on the release needs a little work?

Any help would be apprecitated

the only thing would be to use a fresh name brand battery. if that doesn't work, either you need a new noid or a new marker. i don't recommend messing with your sear

Brand new battery in and tried second brand new battery.

i am confused as to parts. Are we talking about the silver magnetic plunger thing taht hits the seer. Or are we talking about the black plastic coated thing that is attached to the board?

the sear is the part that actually catches your hammer.

the magnetic thing (if i'm getting you) is part of the noid. the black plastic coated thing is also the noid i belive. they go together. a "clapper" noid no?
