Tippmann E-Grip cocking issue

Hope this is posted in the right forum!

I just bought a H.E. e-grip for my A5. I have a slightly annoying issue in that when it goes into full auto, it may shoot only 2 seconds or so, and then the gun dosn't re-cock all the way. I have to slide the cocking lever back just a hair for it to cock. This doesn't happen every time, but more often than not. I don't know if there is a setting in the e-grip that I need to adjust or not. This is the first marker I have used with an e-grip.

Any ideas?

What kind of tank do you have? Co2 or hpa? If you are using hpa it has to be high pressure...other wise there won't be enough blowback pressure to return the hammer to the sear. Especially with the rate of fire the shrimp is capable of.

Are you using a remote line? Or bottle on the marker?

Could be as simple as the internals being gummed up or dirty, the same thing has happened to me before with a 98c.

I had the same issue. I think it had something to do with the sear, it wasnt catching the bolt with the e trigger set up.
I returned the e trigger and got a 68/4500 tank instead.

I think you may need a lighter sear spring. I had the same exact problem, it would get close to recocking but not quite. A lighter sear spring helped.
