Marauder Safety

Hi Guys,
I am currently working on fixing up a buddy's Brass Eagle Marauder and have found that the gun will still shoot with the safety on. Anyone run into this before or have ideas on how to fix it?

Gun belongs to a kid, so I feel that having a working safety is pretty important.

Thanks all

It's a pretty basic cross block safety. There's a arm on top of the trigger. The safety pin has a narrow spot that allows this arm to move when the trigger is pulled. You push in the safety and a wider part of of moves below this arm, blocking it's movement.

Check that the arm on top of the trigger isn't bent. If someone pulled on the trigger really hard it could have bent up. However the trigger is plastic, so there's no real good way of bending it back.

Take the non-working safety off and teach him these 2 simple rules
1.Gun pointed down
2.Finger off the trigger.
Safeties are false hope, as you see with that broken one. What if that safety break had have occured when the gun was not pointed down or when the a finger was on the trigger? Better to avoid the whole thing in the first place. They are a good idea on real guns, paintball guns not so much.
