That happens to my R/T rarly.  In my case it was because of low CO2 tank.  I just cock it and keep going.

i had that happen to me on my a-5 last saturday i just recocked it and shot about 5 times and it was working again. just needs to be shot a little bit to clear it up. unless your spring has gone bad.

^ Nice job triggerhappy. And thank you. I have experienced the same thing on my 98C w/ R/T. That will help me this season.

all new rts do this due to the heavier sear spring. it needs a heavier sear spring so the sear can reset faster for higher ROF. but sometimes the bolt cant push the sear down enough to the trigger and it gets "stuck" because of the heavy spring.

what you can do, is keep a lot of oil on the sear and rear bolt, and try to shoot more and do some dry fireing. over time the spring will weaken a bit, and it will happen less frequently, but every once and a while it may happen.

Sounds like you have something going on in your sear area , are you able to immediately pull the rear bolt back and have it "cock" the rest of the way ?,or do you have to let the bolt forward and then recock it ?

The CO2 gasses your RT uses are vented right into the trigger/sear area , and as you said , after a rapid fire situation ,it could get cold enough in that area to frost up a bit , and temporarily cause your trigger/sear mechanism to hang up on you . Try setting your RoF (RT adjuster)down a bit and see if the problem lessens or goes away entirely . good chance it could be frosting up on you .

Sounds like a weak drive spring to me.  Call tippy.

   ive searched. but all of em say that it uncocks all the way when the Co2 is in. but for mine. its weird. when i rapid fire with my RT once in a while my gun will become uncocked like a Centimeter. it looks like its cocked but it isnt really... i hope u get it. its like 9/10 of the way back, but not enough to become recocked again. if u dont get it cause of my bad english plz tell me and i will edit.
