Well the hammer that hits the pin to make it drop isn't hittin the pin all the way so the pin doesn't move causing the bolt not to go foward. The problem is that my gun won't fire cause of this lil problem. any ideas to fixing it?

I hadn't figured it was electric. My mistake.

That hammer is called a solenoid, and it's hitting the sear and should be, but isn't, releasing the hammer.

There's a few things that can cause this. I'd say the most common is not enough power. If you have the rechargable in there, give it a good charging. If you're using throw-away nine volts, change it out for a new one.

Another reason is too much spring tension from the drive spring. I'm going to guess that you haven't changed it from the stock spring, so this probably won't be the problem. Still though, you can try backing off on the velocity a little (turn it ******ds) to see if that helps. If you have changed the spring though, try a lighter one.
