Look at what I posted. Check the linkage arm, make sure its not bent or it will rub.

gee, after reading this entire thread thread three times, why didn't i think of that....maybe i should check that....oh wait, i already did, three times...

i know your used to ppl coming onto this forum that are perty clueless, but i do maintain now 9 guns, only two of which are the same.  I'm a fairly experienced mechanically minded person, who through all my efforts, and observations cannot solve this problem.  If it were as simple as a bent linkage arm, i would not have even looked at replacing ANY parts as i would have straightend it and the gun would have worked, and i never would have posted anything.

I have disassembled this gun (including the main valve body) more than once, and reassembled, trying to see a cause.  The only thing i can see is that this gun is not designed as well (in the rear hammer area) as the 98. But i'm at a loss and frankly fed up and tired of dealing with it.

next?

I've been having the same problem with one I am repairing for a friend, it
had a leak but it cycled fine so I rebuilt it and then I had the problem, just
found on another site that a common cause of problems is the main valve
stop, a small square of metal 1/4"x1/4"x1/8" falls out the bottom of the
marker when the marker is disassembled that holds the valve from moving
back and forth in the receiver so the hammer makes proper contact with the
valve, I'm now going to tear this place apart to see if I can find it, just a
thought I found on another site that might be the missing piece of the
puzzle

last 2 things I found that finally got the one I'm working on working right,
the red colored front bolt o-ring I got with the tippmann o-ring kit from my
local store was way too tight of a fit to the receiver causing too much drag I
swapped it for one from my A-5 parts kit and that helped out, but it still
would double fire and sometimes keep running, I found the sear was
rounded out a bit and ground it back to a nice sharp edge and put it back
together and now finally it works right

Yeah, i'm definately not missing that square piece, and i think i replaced the orings on everything when i first took it apart, but i'll go ahead and check again.

I'll check the sear, but i'm really not looking forward to trying to wrangle that drive spring back into place again.... (oddly, now my 98, and Spyder are having the same problem)

you don't have to touch the main spring to check either part, just take the
rear sight off and pull the link and then remove the barrel to get to the
bolt, and i checked the o-ring fit just by using the link from the top to
move the bolt back and forth, and as far as the sear just pull the handle
off and no need to play with the main spring, I can't help with the 98 or
spyder too much, only worked on one spyder and it's about the same as
any blow back marker, the only thing i can think of for the 98 is if you
either have a response trigger or the cyclone feed installed they can
cause the problem as well as after market power tubes, i've had both give
me that problem with my A-5 but don't forget the simple things, make
sure the tank is screwed in far enough/not too far as either one can cause
a problem with the gas pressure, and make sure the main springs and
sears aren't worn round, good luck
