luxe rattles while firing???

just got my luxe last week. aired it up for the first time today. no leaks, cycles great works perfectly fine. HOWEVER, noticed that every time the gun fires the back cover ( which lifts up to pull the power core out) rattles like kind of bad??? is this normal or do I have a few screws loose in there somewhere??

Rattles? There are 2 screws that I think could use some tightening. Take out the power core and lift up the back latch cover. There is a screw holding the cover to the core its on the front of the cover kinda under the cover. Also you should look at the on at the back of the cover. It holds the cover and the actual latch on the core. Tighten those two then report back.

If it is popping up and down or something you might need to replace the oring that gives it the "spring effect".

sorry i guess rattling was a bad word.. its more like vibrating with every shot.. i just took the bolt off and made sure the screws were tight and all seems well.. i dont need the latch falling off during a game that would suck.

good stuff. i just took the back apart.. the o ring that causes the tension when lifting the cover seemed pretty shot and somewhat stretched. I replaced that o ring and made sure the cover screw went in and tightened nice. seems a lot tighter now the next time I shoot the luxe will be sunday when I play I will let you guys know if the problem is fixed. thanks for the great help so far!

my backcap rattled, and then i switched accent kicks an it no longer rattled. i went back to the original cap and it rattles. its got something to do with the threads of the backcap i think, since i can tighten down that screw all the way into the backcap, but its not quite tight enough to the latch.

what i did was put a small square of electrical tape between the latch and the backcap. still rattles a little forward and backward, but not up and down. kinda looks like an autococker and i think thats cool. lol
