how high is your reg set? if its lower, it may not give you just enough pressure to cycle, and the rear bolt can catch the sear, causeing it to "double fire". so turn up your regukator, and see if it persists.

check your ball catch. Quick and easy, sounds like that could be a problem

This is the sear and is very important that it be strong enough to catch the bolt every time. This by itself may be your cause.

But this could also be a problem. Without enough air pressure, the bolt would not thrown back hard enough to be recaught by the sear.

 It might be your reg. Make sure that your psi about 800-850 becasue thats the best for tippmanns.
