Mini GS Bolt Problem

I recently acquired my new GS the other day, and when I went to shoot it, I got a chop or two because of the old, bad paint I was using(or at least I think that was the issue). So I took apart the gun, cleaned the bolt, and stuck a squeegee through it. But, when I went to go shoot it again, the bolt got stuck forward, so I figured it just probably needed some lube so I put some on the front orings. Now, when I go to shoot, the bolt still sticks forward. I am still kind if a noob, and have no clue what the issue is. If someone could please help it would be greatly appreciated!

Don't mean to sound like a jerk but did you make sure you put the spring back on the bolt and make sure it's on the correct way? Just asking, you would be surprised how many people will overlook that at times.

The bolt is returned by a spring. If it's not present, the bolt won't be returned.

The person who sold me the gun said to leave the spring in the gun. So what you guys are saying is to take the spring out?

No, they were wondering if you did take it out, because you definitely never should take the spring out, it's an essential part of the bolt system.

I phrased my question wrong. I am aware that you need the spring in the gun, but when taking out the bolt am I supposed to take the spring out also, because that is what I was trying to say.

From what I have read so far the Mini GS is designed to hold on to the spring when you pull the bolt out. So, no, leave it in.

The bolt sticking forward still must be a lubrication issue. Pull everything out again, clean and relube. Lube the small o-rings on the bolt guide (the bolt runs back and forth on this), also lube the o-rings on the bolt, and the ring on the side of the bolt tip. Dry fire it a bit and see if that does the trick.

I just tried what you said to do and it worked! Thank you so much for your help!

Im having the exact same issue! I have pulled the bolt out multiple times and cleaned and lubed it every time. It will work fine for 5-20 shots but then it sticks again...what else could it be?!?!?!
