Nelson woes: Tagmaster is decocking itself when pump isn't held forward.

Hey folks!
I gave my buddy a Trracer Tagmaster as his first pump but he's been having some difficulties with it. When the marker is cocked and the bolt forward, if the trigger is pulled WITHOUT the pump being held forward tightly the trigger causes the bolt and hammer to move rearwards slightly, rather than releasing the sear and firing the gun. Then, when he pumps the marker again it loads another paintball and he ends up with a break.

Is there a way to adjust the trigger parts to make the hammer release more securely?

Does he have the wrong (stronger) main spring in there with the velocity turned to high? Also, is the hammer warn where the sear grabs it?

There really is nothing to tune per say, just checking spring pre-load on the hammer and sear/hammer wear.

Not sure.
He got the marker from me and I got the marker from a closed field, so I wouldn't think there had been any monkeying around with spring strengths.
As of this past saturday it was chronoing right around 280.


I was guessing this had something to do with the way the triggers on these Trracer-family guns were supposed to lock the bolt forward after pumping.
Guess I'll have to borrow it from him and give it a good look.
