SLG going "full auto" as soon as I air it up.

I've heard that this was a pretty common problem, but I don't feel like sifting through 100's of threads just to find a solution.

Okay, so I recently got a broken SLG. When I first got it, the noid would stick and wouldn't even dry fire. I fixed that by messing with the sear, but now it shoots full auto as soon as I air the gun up. Something like this, except I don't even pull the trigger:



Thanks for any help!

At least your SLG shoots. Mine wouldn't even do that.

Get a rail, the SLGs are just an unreliable design and tons of people have problems with them constantly.

Pretty sure he wasn't asking for advice on what kind of gun to spend money on.

None of the suggestions in those threads worked.

I wiped the bolt dry; still shot randomly
Put a pen spring underneath the sear; still shot randomly
Tried a brand new battery; same thing

What else could it be? I'm sure that if Dye can fix it, anybody else can too.

I still think the sear spring is the key.
You said you tried a pen spring, but there's no gauruntee that it's strong enough to hold the sear up, or even stronger than the stock spring.
Try going back to the stock spring, but stretch it slightly first. There's a very fine range of proper spring strength where it will be strong enough to hold back the bolt at rest but not so strong that the solenoid can't cause it to drop the bolt.

Does it still fire randomly when the gun is turned off?

I really laughed a lot when the gun went mad @ 40 s ; I know what you were feeling because i have just finished working on a friend's slg : same symptoms .

What I did :

- with a squeegie, I dried all the grease around the engine, and on the sear
- put teflon around the backcap ( so it won't come off )
- set the fps to 280 ( gun will runaway with lower pressure , and won't also work well if too high )

no more issue so far

good luck with yours

this is an issue with the pressure... adjust your LPR while you are aired up... keep messing with it until it stops. then re-adjust your pressure to desired FPS through the HPR. viola! should fix this problem... if not, then your sear is jacked up

Reason why i know this: ive owned an SLG for 2 years now, mine did this when i first got it. fixed it, and it shot like a dream... went to a tourney and somebody sabotaged my bolt... took a razor to it... got a replacement and found out my main body is cracked, so im looking for a replacement... lol

Since when did SLGs have an LPR?
