I have a problem, my a5 does not recock after the response trigger goes crazy.  I tried loosening the rear bolt screw and it seem to help for a little while but then it started happening again.

oil and clean it, re-tighten the screw.  check for wear on the sear and the part of the hammer that catches the sear.

how much wear is significant?  Also how tight should the screws be?

Would the response trigger have anything to do with this problem since it uses some of the bloback gas?

Thanks.

what are you running HPA, or CO2?
Also check your rear bolt O-Ring.

If you use CO2 you will experience freeze after extended high-ROF shooting.  Freeze will do exactly what you are describing.  Is your gun very cold when it stop shooting?

Assuming that is your problem, HPA will make the problem go away.  A less expensive (and less effective) solution might be an x-chamber, CO2-friendly regulator, or remote.

No it will not. HPA will run good in any weather.
