Maybe the magstrike button doesn't release the air fast enough.

I'm not sure it's that the pump comes back up when I move it down

That definitely means that your check valve is toast.

This happens pretty frequently with air powered guns, but don't worry, it's easy enough to fix. Go to a pet store and look in the aquarium section for check valves. They are used to prevent water from siphoning back into the pumps on air bubblers I believe. Install it as close to the end of the pump as possible, and it will work good as new.

I'm going to assume that you know that the BS uses a backpressure system to fire, otherwise you wouldn't have a MS trigger. You connected it in such a way that air can leave the system when the trigger is pulled, right?

That was what i was thinking that the check valve was broke. Thanks for all tour help.
