I need help with my Mini.

I recently have bought a used Mini
& have noticed that there was a slight bounce to it.
I'm still very new to the gun, nonetheless the sport,
and I would like to know how to turn the bounce off?
I looked through the manual, but all it tells me
are different ramping modes, etc.
Says nothing about the bounce.

Meh.

Maybe ask here: http://www.pbnation.com/forumdisplay.php?f=423 ?

But my opinion is, honestly, you bought a gun that goes for $150 used, what did you expect? The trigger might be a little bouncy, maybe try some trigger adjustments.

Yeah. It was pretty sloppy when I first got it. But now I've spent a while adjusting the trigger, looked at my board, and what not. But I recently used the Mini in my last tourny, and the refs told me there was slight bounce to it.

you are probably too close to your activation point. adjust the trigger so that it is further away. i dont believe the mini stock board has a debounce setting

Mini's are good markers and EASY to maintain.....

I had mine for almost two years, always worked perfectly!!

I got mine brand NEW and my trigger was bouncy as well........

just mess with the trigger a bit..... you'll get it right

best way to elimnate a bouncy trigger is to make the trigger pull longer, and a bit stiffer. if the trigger pull is really short and soft, the "kick" from the marker can be enough to make it trip the switch on the board again, and thus adding in a few extra shots.

I'm going to move this to the Mini forum for you so that you will get better answers. It's always best to put a question about a marker in it's forum because you have many more people in that forum who know about that specific marker.

there is a debounce setting on your board as well, however the easist way is by tightening the trigger, with my mini if i have a longer trigger pull it gets lighter as well and bounces like crazy, which is kinda fun sometimes but for tournies i shorten and stiffen my trigger pulls.

Hmm, I say throw on a magnet on the return magnet. It will make your mini trigger feel so much better and because of the added resistance you should have less bounce.
