My Imagine needs some work

My Imagine shoots somtimes twice when I pull the trigger once which as you probly guessed leads to chops which I have been getting alot latly. And it's more then somtimes it's more like (if the co2 tank is full) every other trigger pull.
Please help.

Check the sear and the striker and see if they look worn at all. Also, make sure there are no leaks or anything blocking the airway. YOu are either not getting enough pressure to re-cock sometimes, or your seer/striker are worn and not catching.

im guessing the pressure on your gun is to low, if not enough pressure is applied, the bolt will only go back partially, but is then forced to go forward since its got nowhere else to go, cause ind double cycles, or your sear might be worn, check your striker and sear for wear and then sand the problem areas if needed so taht the sear can catch the striker

I get the same problem with a brand new gun. Sent my gun into Kingman a month ago. They held it for two weeks and replaced the sear spring. Got the gun back last week. It still does it. Not gonna buy another kingman product.

P.S. It seems to do it when their is liquid CO2 in the gun.

take your trigger frame off your gun, and shoot once, make sure that you dont hear to clicks, so you know its not your electronics

but it sounds like a pressure problem your bolt isnt being cocked after you shoot so it shoots again. Make sure you arent losing air anywhere.

I can almost guarantee that he is not getting debounce on a basically stock imagine.

yea, i dont think that is possible, you cant control how long the valve is open, so that wouldnt be the problem

Exactly, make sure its not the board or micro-switch and if not then its an air problem. Check the internals and make sure nothing is wrong with the valve and nothing is blocking it. Maybe try drilling your VA (Vertical Adapter) holes larger to get more air flow............ http://www.ottersccustoms.com/vertmod.html

Make sure that the seer return spring is strong enough to forcefully snap it back into place. It may not be returning quickly enough to catch the striker after the 'noid kicks it.

Your sear or striker is worn to the point where it has problems catching. For chopping, get a motorized hopper.
