So here's my problem.

When I shoot my Spyder it uncocks, After every Shot. Actually it will try to cock but it fails. Here's what I'm thinking, The Sear's worn down? I've had it for about 6-7 months, but i lost my allen wrench to take the grip off, so i can't check...If it is the sear, where could i get a new one?

well if you got the allens you could take the gun apart and see if there is anything wrong with the sear and everything...might also want to check all the valves because there may not be enough air to recock the gun

Sounds like your spring that holds the sear. Take apart your trigger (very easy, just get the punch pins out), and pull your trigger and you will see that the piece of metal that holds your sear doesn't move . This is if you have a mech spyder. If its an electric i'm not sure as to how they work.

Sounds like you are not getting a good seal on the striker. When the valve opens, it sends air to the face of the striker to push that back and re-cock the marker. If you are getting an air leak there, the marker will not recock. So change your striker O-ring and lube it well and see if that solves your problem.

It is VERY hard to wear down the sear. The steel in your sear is a very dense, hard type of steel that is used specifically to avoid wear. Does that mean that your sear isn't worn down? No, just that it is less likely that that is the problem.

The other thing to check is if your trigger frame is seated all the way or if it is loose. If it is loose, the sear sets too low and will not catch the striker. Tighten it up and see if that helps.

The only other thing I can think of is that you lost or broke the sear return spring. That is the spring in the grip frame that returns the sear in the up posistion readying it to catch the sear. The way you can diagnose this is to turn the marker upside down while under pressure and fire it a few times. If the spring is broken, the sear will catch when inverted (as gravity is pulling it down) but not when the marker is in the upright position.


Give these simple fixes a try and post back what you have found. If none of those work, I have a few more ideas, but I am not making this particular post any longer then it already is.

OK, i got a allen wrench. Your right it wasn't the Sear. Medic, could you explain that Seal-Striker thing a little more?

Edit-I changed the O-ring on the Sear. The other one looked fine. It just seemed to easy, ill try it with some air soon.

What type of spyder do you have? I had a problem with my xtra because i jammed my bolt into hard and i stretched out some springs and it didnt cock or shoot. If I knew how to send pics I would send you the pick of the internal mech frame it helped me solve my problem.

I am gonna say a bad striker o-ring. My imagine would do that, and I found out it was a bad striker o-ring. Change that, and you should be fine..
If it isnt that, try the stuff medic said. It does sound like the sear isnt catching the striker...

Fixed- I was missing a part. Ok..........It stopped working in the middle of play and there is no way it could have fallen out. It was the black stick thing that goes inside the spring. Im just glad it works, but thats really wierd.......
