Hey guys, I just modded my rampage. It is spray painted but not on moving parts, also I have a orange mod works 5kg spring in it. So here's the problem, every time I try to prime it or pull the priming handle back, it doesn't lock or catch on so it won't stay primed. I was thinking maybe the spring was too powerful for the trigger catch but I have no idea since I am a beginner. Please help

Near impossible to diagnose w/o pictures of your internals, all any of us will be doing is guessing. If you upload a picture or two of it opened up we might be able to poke around and see. Sorry I can't be of more help at the moment. I do know those OMW kits usually come with an upgraded catch, though, so it could very well be the issue. But again, no pic-y, no science. Dead give away would be evidence of shearing on your catch or on the plunger rod ramp. Basically, it would look "frayed" or "ground down" from the spring forcing the plastic pieces to tear through each other.

Good luck, and everything's better with pictures. (well, almost everything *shudders*)

The only thing worse than stupid is lazy, at least an idiot will try. And its usually entertaining.

Yes, Pictures.

A common problem is that you've applied too much Silicone grease. Remove your catch and plunger tube, completely wipe off the catch and clean out the catch notch in the plunger tube.

Just a shot in the dark, but it's something that happens quite a bit.

It also might be because your catch spring is too weak. Try replacing it.
