Stock cocker, or not? And if it isn't, do you have an adjustable front pneumatics reg?

If you're not pulling the trigger all the way through the cocking point every time, sure, it'll do that.

more than likely you're doing what's called "short stroking" the cocker. As a cocker-only problem because of the way it's designed, the problem is that you don't pull the trigger back in order to let the gas flow fully through the 4-way in the front and thus the pneumatics don't fully function correctly. It's probably not going to do your gun a whole lot of harm if you occassionally short stroke, but it's reommended that you get a feel for how the trigger works on your cocker to prevent the ever-popular short stroke while trying to bunker someone.

Everyone is correct. You are just short stroking. What I say to do with this is every time you pull the trigger, make your finger hit the trigger guard and then pull the trigger again. It really doesnt slow you down in your rate of fire, and it teaches you to pull it good.

It could be others thing, like the timing of the hammer... Or the 3/4-way. If it's the frontblock reg, you can screw off the reg (NOT THE PIECE THAT ACTUALLY GOES INTO THE GAS BLOCK!!!) from the fitting and unscrew the screw inside it. Do not take it out too much, you might end up without enough pressure... Hope it helps.
