i put the 215 back in. it appears to work fine as long as i don't short stroke. is that normal?

are there ways to tune an automag to minimize short stroking?

just to clarify, it's considered short stroking if the you pull the trigger not firm enough, and the bolt fails to engage the sear, leading to a leak that can only be eliminated by stopping the air supply, right? like, there's nothing wrong about the gun if that is happening?

Can you stop the leak by holding the trigger all the way back for a second or so? That would be normal fix for a short stroke leak if the leak is fixed by that.

Short stroking a mag happens when you don't release the trigger all the way between trigger pulls. Resulting in a partially filled dump chamber and making the chuff sound.

wait, so is it normal to have the gun unstoppably leaking when pulling the trigger slowly and halfway? after that happens no matter how hard or quick i pull the trigger it wouldn't stop, and i have to disable the asa and re-air it.

i guess it'll be fine if there's no fix though, i'll just pull the trigger quickly.

Hmm, that shouldn't happen. Have you tried oiling the heck out of it?

no, but it is also a very, very old sear (entire gun was a rental). i'm thinking maybe the sear's worn out so the bolt is released sooner than it should, leading to the on off not sealing first.

but then i don't get why the leak is unstoppable.

Oil and make sure the sear rod is the right length. Too long or short can cause issues as well. Should sit about a credit cards width from the back of the trigger when its aired up. It should not sit against the back of the trigger.

Guys the gun can be borken down into basic parts.

Regulator / On/Off / PowerTube

There are very very few things that will cross across the areas to cause issues.

If the gun is getting a solid shots, good pop on the ball then there should never be a need to turn up the regulator ( the velocity adjustment ) to get the gun to reset.

Bolt stick is a function of residual air chamber pressure and the spring not being able to over come that. So I would check the hight of the spring to see if it is overly compressed. Next would be tuning using the Spacer kits. Outside of that you could have a tweaked Rail or Main body, I saw a lot of rental guns with slight bends to them from getting run into the ground.
