I have an issue with my mini firing on the first trigger pull only when i turn it on from sitting for awhile. Seems like I have to pull it 9 times or so before it will fire and then it works fine from there. Would appreciate any help

try a new battery, if that does not work i would start fiddling with the hall effects trigger. check the magnet on the trigger for sure it could be a case that that has worked its way loose or off and by pulling it 9 times it manages to seat itself again so it will work.

It doesn't fire until after the trigger pulls. Even if I turn the eyes off. I will look into the magnet thing. what do you mean by hall?

hall effects trigger, its what, for whatever reason, invert decided to use on the mini. rather than a physical switch or break beam eyes which are common in trigger systems, invert decided to use the hall effects trigger which basically uses a magnet passing through a sensor field to sense when the trigger is pulled. the magnet is threaded into the trigger and if that has come loose it could possibly cause what you are seeing. however the battery is more likely the issue. replace it with a name brand 9v

would the trigger sensor happen to be on the eye board? I believe mine is bad and ordering a new one. I will give a new battery a try and report back

edit: put a new battery in and turned it on with eyes off to dry fire and couldn't get it to fire at all

Just an update I believe my problem is I'm missing the magnet in the body. I've ordered a few but they are on back order i guess so i wont get them till later this month.
