I recently accquired a Powerclip in a trade. It was unmodded and worked great. I was amazed by its high rate of fire. Well, I did the standard clip mod to it to allow for interchangeable clips and about a day later, it started screwing up.

My problem is this: it will not advance past the third triangular piece on the side. The arm that moves the clip up gets hung on the third piece. Instead of the arm moving under the piece and forcing the clip up, it moves to the side and does nothing but sit there and go back and fourth. Is there anyway I can remedy this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had the same exact thing happen to mine about a year ago. It fires all the shots, the clip just doesn't advance right? I tried several things. First, take the gun apart, and screw it back together tightly. I had my gun too loose, and my clip didn't advance. Also, check to see that everything is in place. If anything is loose, it could cause no advance.

On a side note, my gun had a leak too. This most likely has nothing to do with a clip not advancing, but it doesn't hurt to check. If so, seal it up with plumber's, epoxy, etc. Hope this helps. Best of luck, chief.

Mine did the same thing. I clip modded it, and then it just wouldn't work. As said, just screw it tighter. The PC is a whore when it comes to the screws. When they are all tight, it should work perfectly. I almost thought I had broken mine when it happened.

And don't over tighten, you'll break the heads off the screws.

The other thing to check is the little black nub and spring that pushes up against the clip. If it has fallen out of place or got lost while you modded it that could also account for the problem.

Thank you so very much for your advice, gentlemen. I took it apart again and tightened everything, however this did not remedy the problem. The arm slides around the triangle, not going under it, thus not advancing the the clip up. I've uploaded this picture to help. Sorry it's blurred. Perhaps, this will give you a better view of the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot!

Edit: Since the arm is going over the triangle, I thought about hot gluing in a small piece of plastic on the railing that hold the arm. This would push the arm over to the right just a small bit, there keeping it closer to the clip. Let me know what you think.

Does the triangle look worn or anything or does it look the same as the others?

Is the third ring the only one it gets caught on? Check to make sure the clip slides easily up and down. Chances are you've mabey over tightened things (football player!) or moved things around ever so slightly so it's harder for the clip to slide. It doesn't take much extra resistence AT ALL for the clip to start acting up.

:P Haha, good one, Franky. Alright, I'll check that first thing in the morning. I'm glad I've also got your PC coming to me, as well. Thanks, Frank. :cry:

I have just fixed the problem. The black piece on the end of the arm was worn a bit. I epoxied on a piece plastic on top of the black piece, covering up the worn part. This remedied it quite well, and it gives me a slighty better ROF due to a quick edge sliding the clip upwards. I want thank everyone for their help!
