mini mag problem

I bought a second body for my minimag did some work on the new body put the gun together and it shot fine. Painted the body now it shoots full auto, thought that's odd installed the old body and it shoots fine no auto or double shots. What am I doing wrong or could be wrong?

Assuming its a stock Minimag body......

The sear isn't catching therefore allowing the bolt to go full auto?

Maybe the paints to thick on the bottom of the body causing the gap between the rail and body to be to large?

Try tightening the frame screws just dont over do it.

If that doesnt help you may have to sand the area around the front frame screw to allow it to sit down in the indent in the rail.

If that doesnt work sand the bottom of the body lightly to get a tighter fit.

Let us know if you figure it out.

That's what I would expect. A longer on/off pin would help, but I would sand the body down before I went over 0.750 pin length.

When the pin is short or just can't reach the on/off o-ring before the sear releases, there's a gap in the trigger pull where the bolt is free to move while on/off is still open. If the trigger rod is set on the short side, you may not be able to pull past that point to close the on/off at all.

Luke(-AO) masks the body and rail mating surfaces off when he powder coats for this reason.

well I scrapped the paint off the area where the body meets the rail and now it works. Thanks for all the help and here's a picture of the new body plus matching grips

Good work. The frame looks great with the Red panels.

What kind of paint did you use? Just automotive rattle can?
I do like the red with the chrome.

the paint is duplacolor metallic finish I think says it gives a anodized like color on surfaces the grips are the same paint with white primer sprayed first.
