SLG Bolt Sticking , After waiting small amount of time??

Now before you bash on this is normal, please read all of my post.

I have had the gun all this year MN since April. I play almost every weekend and have shot tons of cases of paint in with it.

Best I can tell I changed the 3 orings on the bolt just a general rule after around 4-5 months.

After this time (hard to be sure) when I go out to the field and gas up gun, bolt sticks so bad almost cant push it with my finger. After I get it loose , it works perfect all game. Then take a short break, and every time 1-3 shots before bolt will come forward to start next game.

I do clean and relube my gun after most outings as it is so simple. I use dye lube, smart parts sleek is no better.

Again it has worked fine doing all the about for months. I also have cleaned and relubed the reg and no help.

I am 37 and very mechanical, this is why I called dye. They seem to think its normal. Then why was it not doing it for so long. And how can I be fixed.

My best guess would be smaller orings? So they dont buldge out so far and make it tighter?

Any Other Ideas would be great.

A link would be a huge help where to go.

I did also spend a ton of time sorting through the proto slg information with no luck.

The search function does not seem to work on the forums. Too many users?

It usually takes more than 10 minutes to get an answer. Be patient. Seems normal to me tho, try to raise dwell a bit.

isnt there like a purge button on the slg to push the bolt into the right position?

if it keeps happening, i myself would probably buy a new bolt for it, seeing as you said you shot a lot of cases through it.

but at the same time i dont think it would be the bolt, since it would most likely be the orings.

are you playing in very humid weather when this happens?

Does not seem to matter weather, I am testing in my home as well. I have replaced the orings many times also tried tons of lube. The orings are from the slg medium parts kit and I matched them up with the chart. Could they just be to thick?

I can hear the sear tripping just fine, It just takes 3-4 clicks to fire.


And yes the it does have a purge which also unsticks the bolt after you push it like 2-3 times then gun will work fine.


But You should not have to do this in between each game.

Thanks for all your ideas guys, keep them comming. Also yesterday we tried swaping bolts with another slg. Both shoot fine no real sticking, but we did not let them sit very long.


Somtimes the first game out after a good cleaning a really lubed, it sticks so much it will not fire, then I would have to degas and push bolt with end of pen to move.

It sounds to me that you are either getting a lot of "sticktion" or your sear isn't actuating fully. Sticktion can be caused by a deformed bolt and the sear issue would be had to sort out.

Have you taken off the frame to see what both the sear and solenoid are doing?

*Edit* Have you tried a fresh battery? That will rule out the solenoid aspect pretty fast.

Very good idea and I did this tonight and seem the little set skrew that holds the sear in place was very loose, so I took out sear and cleaned and put all back together.

Still no go, possible bolt ? I think a whole new bolt I will test with my buds gun.

Just wanted to try to help people out there that may have a simalar problem.

Most likely what happend was as i was cleaning bolt and took bolt apart, and i know full well thats not recomended, the bolt was very hard to get all the way apart so i had a few guys try to unskrew the bolt and it was very hard, best guess is it got tweaked a bit(bent) so you may not notice by looking at it but it may be bent.

When I try another bolt i will post on it.

The bolt going crazy and the bolt getting stuck are two separate issues. The bolt getting stuck is often a result of decreased tolerances in the chamber. If the bolt chamber is too small, then it tends to get stuck every time you don't use it for a while. If the marker is under warranty, you can send it to Dye and they can ream out the breach for you. The cheapo way of dealing with the stuck bolt issue is after each session, disconnect the air source and then fire the marker one more time. This will leave the bolt in the forward position with the marker degassed. When you air it up the next time, the bolt will slide back into place and be ready to fire. There should be no sticking at this point. You just have to remember to perform this every time you degas the marker.

The full auto problem has several root problems. The sear can be worn and therefore not be catching the bolt as it moves back. The sear spring can be too soft. You can have too much lube on the bolt causing the sear to slip. Or the regulator can be set too low.
