Low air. Fill up the tank. When it is low on air, the hammer doesn't have enough pressure to be pushed all the way back to be cocked again.

first remove the silver pin on your trigger, and see if it would resolve it.

Notice the metal peice on the back of the trigger, remove that and try it out.

 

What exactly "all ape on me", anyway?

BTW, the pin was talking about is called: Slider pin & w/ slider spring.

Yes, and actually better.  It will hold down the trigger switch better.  If you have an E-grip, they dont come with those slider pin & spring.

No, Whats holding the trigger are those three pin, from the trigger assembly.  The slider pin & spring, has to do with A-5 sears.  If i'm not mistaken, thats what make the sear or stock A-5 fire.  the armature pin, is the replacement of that slier pin & spring.

The slide that he suggested you remove is used in a mechanical trigger setup to push the edge of the sear up which will cause the back end to go down and release the rear bolt. That is what normally fires the gun. When you get an egrip, the solenoid pushes the armature pin into the bottom of the sear where the trigger slide usually does. That's why you don't need it anymore when you go electronic. And, as mentioned, the slide usually interferes with the operation of the egrip so it's best to remove it while you have the egrip installed. If it is still in there, remove it and see if the problem persists.

EDIT: Jason Doering, I don't know what possesses you to write in such a light color but it's a horrible idea, don't do that.

Thx to Roweazie and to mod98commando for all the help.

Roweazie "going ape on me" just another word for going out of control........

Meaning when I pull the trigger and then release it again it still carries on firing, it does not stop even after I have released the Trigger. the only way to stop it is to wait for the gas to finish or take of the gas......
