SLG shoots every other shot

So I got a SLG today and i test shot it and it shoots every other shot. Like i pull the trigger it fires a ball, i pull it again the noid clicks and if i pull it again the gun shoots a ball. I used 2 diff hoppers and the same thing happened.

Any ideas?

first thing to check is if the battery is fresh and if the tongs have a strong connection. Sometimes they can get bent down and not touch the battery. Try adding a little wad of paper underneath if this is the case.

dead battery. and take the battery out when not in use. for some reason the slg will eat up batteries if they are left hooked up.

No the hopper was fine. It was the battery and the paper the previous owner put in just didnt do the job

Change the battery you will be fine. On an SLG change the battery every other time you go out to play

Played with mine for the first time today. 2500 balls and my battery was done. Started skipping trigger pulls. New battery fixes it right up.

SLG=Battery Hog!

I've had this problem too. What's happening is that one hit of the solenoid isn't enough to drop the sear. It's like a hammer taking more than one hit to drive a nail.

Remember, always store your SLG with the battery in upside-down.
That way it won't drain before your next game.

Also, if you have a Sam's card, you can get 5 Energizer alkalines for around $10, which is a lot cheaper than most stores.
