recock problem

I set my recock and it Keeps going out. It just keeps on stopping cocking. Its really getting to me. I was hoping that there was a way to keep it working all game. The gun has such a kick to it that it makes it vibrate out. Can I do something like loctite it or is there a safer way to do it.

270 to 280 range. It just stops shooting and decocks. Then I reset it and its fine for awhile till it does it again.

This is the first time I've heard of this problem... But i imagine it could happen if you're getting some crazy kick... Before resorting to tightening the recock screw with something, first try lessening the kick. Try greasing the internals down and rods down... Make sure everything is lined up correctly as well... Also replace the bumper if its torn up... If that's not enough you could try loctite or teflon paste to give the recock screw some more grip... If you use loctite make sure its blue.

Good luck. It might behoove you to contact pmi prior to loctiting it.

The PMI tech dude told me to use blue loctite. The vibrations from the gun shooting can cause the recock screw to move.
The instructions he told me were to put blue loctite on the screw and let it dry overnight. Then put it in and adjust the recock.

I have tried adjusting i with air and paint and it shoots fine till you play with it. The first time I shot it (played) it was unbelievable. Shot super for a "cheep" gun. Yesterday it was a totally different story. It just wouldn't stop screwing up.

I will try the loctite trick and let ya'll know what happens.

I was thinking about trying to mix and match a cocker and a spyder spring kit to lessen the kick. any suggestions?

I would not reallt mess with the strikers spring, it's a suretain tention for a reason, it's not really ment for adjusting unless in extreme conditions.

I say go for it. Try different things out and let us know what works for yah. Anything that helps improve the gun's performance is worthwhile... even if its just a small change...

I just think that it jumps arround a little to much. I also have an idea for the recock. Kind of a field strip set up so to speak i will let you all know
