Problems With A Firefly
Posted 27 June 2007 - 06:05 PM
Anyway, if anyone has any ideas about what to do about this bad boy, I'd appreciate it. I like the gun and don't want to have to go buy another.

Cussing, cursing, swearing, using profanity: All I have to say is why the hell not.
Because every time you do God kills a kitten.
Everytime you miss an opportunity to say 'fuck' I'm going to eat a kitten.

Or you could just look into the Mod's Directory for quicker link
You probably reassembled it wrong. Use the search button to find a mod or something with pics of the FF's internals, and figure out what the problem is.

A) Lost the catch spring.
Inserted the plunger UPSIDE DOWN (this is a common one. I've done it TWICE).
C) Assembled it incorrectly (the catch for the most part).
And a bonus...
D) The plunger head screw has been ripped out from the plunger rod itself, making the plunger head separate from the plunger rod, meaning that pulling the cocking handle back does nothing but pull the rod out (meaning no tension from the spring at all). This has happened to me and it's really pissed me off since I didn't even do a spring replacement. 2-ton epoxy will put this bitch back in its place.

I thought the catch spring was out of it's fitting or something, or the nosel was upside down, but it turned out that the spring was not perfectly straight.
It curved a bit in the middle and when I tried to manually push the plunger back, it showed me clearly that when forced back, since the spring was a 'lil curved, it pushed the plunger upwards instead of straight, so the lock mechanism would never lock the plunger.
To fix this, I just rotated the spring around a bit until it would force the plunger down when pushed (or whichever direction the locking mechanism is on), then when cocked back, the spring would force the plunger downwards towards the lock.
Sometimes you could do everything right and still have problems, if you still can't figure it out today, just set it aside until you have one of those moments where things just seems to "click" in your mind (That's what I did to my old Maverick when I tried to mod it and it malfunctioned, instead of tossing a new Mav out the window, I gave it to my friend until I was ready and more experienced to fix it. I got it back 2 weeks later and now my friend has a modded Mav that can shoot stefans).
