Hey is anyone else noticing an issue when trying to single fire the Barrel Break? I can do it however its really tricky and the effort I have to put into it is not really something I want to be doing in the middle of a fire fight. I'm wondering if anyone else experiencing this issue as well or do I just have a defective gun?

Mine is tricky, too. A lot more sensitive than the Double Shot, for sure. Just something to get used, to, I guess. Or open it up and see if shaving/adding to a lever can space out the trigger pull.

I have noticed the same thing with my barrel break. You just have to try harder to single fire and apply 1/2 of the normal pressure to fire the 1st dart. It is a whole lot easier to just fire both at the same time though.

I have used a few barrel breaks, and I have definitely seen sticky triggers. I plan on returning one of mine for that exact reason.

I've got one as well. The firing ramps on the trigger are less than 1/2 an inch apart, thus making the single shot a very tricky thing to do.

Don't worry so much about what other people will allow. Throw your own wars and kick your friends' asses until they all want one.

I believe I've found something of a solution in my modifying of this gun.

There are two short ramps which trigger each barrel, first left then right. Unfortunately there is not a lot of material to be shaved down since the piece is not solid, however a little filing can be done, and the top edge of the shorter ramp (for the right side) can be filed down to sort of a curve, a.k.a. chamfering. It removes enough material to prevent the second barrel from firing prematurely without the sharp edge at the top of the ramp.

I'd take pictures, but without the contrast of shiny plastic, its a bit too difficult to see unless I find some other means of taking a photograph of it in other light.
