my gun sploded.....

So, cleaning it up and oiling it, getting ready to play tomorrow. Everything's assembled and time to dry fire test. Rip about 100 rounds then a torrent of air comes down the bolt and doesn't stop until the trigger's held down. Notice my springs a bit short (old) so I put a new one on, and take the lvl 10 off to take a shim out when I notice this:





And there's a fine copper powder all around the bumper and the area that contacts that of the bolt...... what the

I have an IT body and some people have said there were tolerance issues, could this be one? The only way I see this scrapping down is if the bolt goes so far forward it goes past tip and catches on the return...that's not supposed to happen though, is it?

Some days I think I should of stuck w/ my problem free 'cockers....

p.s. now it's chuffing every once and a while and the bolt doesn't reset.

Some of the IT bodies didn't have a steel insert (required in most aluminum bodies), and they would wear themselves to death.

Sounds like what you have going on there.
