Hello,

I cant seem to get my response trigger to shoot at a higher BPS.  I have tuned it to the fastest it can shoot and its still relatively sluggish compared to what I have seen others get out of it.  

Any ideas??????

ha. my apologies.  you could have overturned the RT try going back and forth with the screw.  check the airway for obstructions, there may be something clogging the hose.  finally clean and lube your gun you may have something internally blocking flow.  If that doesn't help let me know and we can take it from there

Compressed air, out of a normal 3000 psi air tank.

I keep my gun lubricated and there is nothing that I have noticed that could block the air way.  The response trigger came factory installed in my A-5.  And frankly I have never been able to get the expected higher rates of fire (and I am pretty good at shooting at its sweet spot).   But recently its been more slow and unresponsive than normal, no pun intended.

It has been awhile since I tuned my RT, so bear with me.

I always found that tuning the screw all the way back to the point where the RT was useless, then slowly turning it in worked best for me.

Or is it turning the screw in all the way, then backing out... hmm...

Yeah that's the way I tuned it too.  That method got me to the fastest my RT trigger would go ... but it is still way to slow (compared to ... every one else that has one)
