Autococker Timing help please

Alright so if i pull the trigger slowly the sear will release and fire the marker and then the gun will recock, or at least attempt to. the problem is it doesnt recock consistently, maybe every 5th shot will it actually fire, other than that it cycles. I tried lengthening the cocking rod and moving the back block back but the last 3 adjustment i made i didnt notice a difference. Is this in the timing for sure, or is there another factor to consider. Thanks guys. Zac

Have you adjusted the LPR to ensure there is enough pressure to force the back block to compress the main spring past the point where it catches the sear?

When you manually pull the cocking rod back, does it catch the sear? if it doesn't catch you will need to raise the sear height. this will effect when the trigger breaks. therefore you will need to re-time the marker.

Welcome to the wonderful world of cockers.

The first thing that should happen as you pull the trigger is the gun should fire.

Then when held back the back block should be back and cocked. If it won't cock all the way consistently then turn up the LPR. You want the bolt to feel kinda firm like a bouncy ball when it is being held back by the ram.

Then it should return no problem.

Timing cockers is actually super easy if you get the idea of how they should be working.

The stock lpr is adjustable (just a bit more involved). Remove the brass fitting on the end of the lpr (the part that screws in the front block) and there will be a an adjuster inside that uses a flat head screwdriver. Counter clockwise will turn up the pressure.
