Sorry for the delay.

 

Even though Northern Virginia's quite a while from Richmond, we used to have a group meet up every couple of months. Wars were pretty fun, especially considering how close it was for me, but we haven't had one in a while.

 

I'm sure things will start back up soon, but if not I'll try and throw something together. Best of luck down south!

I would check out the plunger padding.

 

I'm not quite sure what specifically is happening when you try to prime the blaster, but I'd be willing to take a guess. Unless the internals stay in place when you prime (in which case you would want to check the metal rod's connection to the boltsled), then you probably padded the plunger too much.

 

Either that or the tougher spring warped your priming rod (metal bar from the front), but it's hard to tell.

 

Best of luck with this, we've all been there at some point. Hope this helps.

Weathering is the solution to all your problems. :)
 
On to the next endeavor.

I believe I'm available. Can't wait.

 

EDIT: Somebody doesn't know how to use a calendar... Going to be out of state until the day after. Oh well.


In Topic: Microswitch For The Trigger?

Why the repost?

 

Anyway, if you're looking for just a micro switch, you get one from basically anywhere, just make sure they match the wiring and battery you plan on using. 

 

As for a full auto kit, you can make your own for cheap with some additional jank. All you need is an RC motor gearbox (around $4 if you know where to look), gear rack with corresponding gear (trimmed), and lots of hot glue/putty. Hell, you could skip some steps by finding the 3D files for a pusher or housing and print them locally. 

 

It may take some imagination and elbow grease, but it's possible. Somebody did something similar to a rayven.

 

Hopefully I answered your question.
