Hi there,

I have a relatively new A-5 with an e-grip.  Everything worked great my first trip out, but a few cases of paint later each trigger pull results in stutter-firing, with 7 or 8 cycles before it successfully recocks.  Switching to a manual grip solves the problem, and switching the e-grip to a different A-5 body didn't, so it's almost certainly the grip assembly rather than something in the main marker body.  The electronics in the e-grip seem fine, so I'm thinking it's a sear issue.

In anticipation of the usual questions:
- Brand new batteries, fresh air tank
- No visible wear on the sear
- No springs have been swapped
- The sear is the original one that came with the e-grip, so it's not a manual sear that accidentally got swapped in
- No visible problems on the bolt in either marker

Any suggestions for what could be wrong or how to better troubleshoot the issue?
