I had an odd issue with my maverick last night

So last night I went to the local speedball field, I used my maverick part of the night. One problem troubled me throughout the night though. If I autotriggered, it worked fine, but if I simply pumped back then forward, and pulled the trigger, it wouldn't always shoot. Sometimes it would shoot fine, others I had to hold the trigger for about 1/2 second before it would fire, and other times it would not fire at all. Sometimes, if it didn't fire, and I let go of the pump, it would fire (I had a lot of time to expirament)

I won't be able to crack it open for another few hours, but what can I look for first? My initial guess is that the sear and hammer weren't lubed enough, so the sear was sticking? The trigger felt fine though.

seems fine now, tomorrow I should be able to air it up and fire some paint through it.

I couldn't see what I was doing last night, and, well, it's lubed up enough, thats for sure

Sounds like the trigger wasn't catching the sear on the hammer consistently. Is the hammer sear a lot thinner than the slot in the frame it sits in?

Define a lot... it's about 2/3mm on either side, it looks like. Hard to tell

Enough such that if the hammer sear slipped to one side, then the trigger could be pulled but not move the sear, i.e., goes right beside it?

No, the sear has no play either within the hammer or within the body, and the trigger is fairly strong.

I'll double check for something like that though

Is the main spring too strong? It could be exerting a lot of force on the hammer and bolt, causing the sear to be very difficult to trip.
