Describe what you mean by "sticks" Is the microswitch activating? Is it moving or is it stuck? Will the gun cycle? ect...

Adjust the screw in the trigger out a bit, it will shorten the trigger pull and should stop it from sticking. It worked on mine at least. If that doesn't work make sure it isn't full of paint.

Loosen the upper grip screw on each side of the rubber grip. If you have those cranked down too tight it will pinch the trigger when you pull the trigger in.

This problem bugs the hell out of me at work. Never had this problem with Vibes, but Envys, almost all of them. From what I can tell, the trigger swells. Trigger was clear of paint as well.
Take the trigger frame apart from the body, knock the trigger pin out and take the trigger out. When it's out, to test the problem I usually have, I put the trigger pin back in the trigger to see if the trigger moves freely when pushing it back and forth. If it doesn't, there's your problem.
Use something to bore out the trigger pin hole and test again til it moves freely. Re-install to confirm.
Doing what GOG says helps as well, but I personally dremel the triggers down (around the magnet) b/c I'd rather have the grip screws tighten down since they'll loosen up for how much use the rentals get if they were loose. And we use snap grip screws...

The screw is right in the middle of the trigger. It hits the grip frame to stop the trigger pull. It takes a .05 Allen to adjust, this fixed the bit of stick I had.

Play around with it till "it feels right". It's not an exact science.
