Empire Sniper help!
I just bought an Empire Sniper from a buddy of mine back home for super-cheap, and inherited his problems.
Problem #1: The auto-trigger came removed from the gun when I received it, but when I try to install it the gun no longer fires. The AT isn't a very complicated design so idk what the problem is. Whenever I install the AT it blocks the trigger pull, preventing the gun from shooting at all.
Problem #2: the pump stroke is pretty bad. Like, it gets stuck about mid pump stroke, like it is catching on something. It isnt the bolt O-ring catching on the detents, it just seems like there is a lot of friction somewhere in the stroke, and I can't figure out why. The return spring is still in it, and doesnt seem to be causing a problem. And the guide rods are both the same length (i've heard that can cause problems)
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
