ATing Buzzard

Hey folks, I've read the threads about all the issues with the Buzzard AT acting up.

I went out today to test out my buzzard real quick before leaving tmrw for Castle. It started doing the AT nonsense. I made sure the valve and body were as snug together as possible and its still doing it. Help please. Really need to find a fix before tomorrow.

It's not how snug they are, but how well they are aligned. Try moving the stainless body tube backwards slightly, eliminating any gap between the SS tube and the valve body.

Thats what I meant. I got rid of any gap as best I could. There is still a very small one, but it doesnt get any smaller, or tighter together.

Try using a larger bolt o-ring. Sometimes the bolt can get just a little bit further into the barrel causing the same issue as a gap between the valve and body.

Any chance you can use electrical tape to create a thicker layer for the o-ring to fit in?

I am trying to think... I am pretty certain the bolt o-ring can cause issues, I believe splattttttt mentioned that he eliminated the occasional auto-triggering issues on the Buzzard I sold him by going to a larger o-ring.

You can always go balls out and slightly shave down the trigger or sear...

The bolt o-ring is a good idea, though. Also, try slightly loosening the two set screws under the front of the gun and making sure your barrel is completely threaded in.

The tape actually seems to have solved it. We'll see what happens! Thanks guys

Okay, tape was def a temporary solution. Anyone have a link to the larger o-rings? or know what size I'm looking for?

Hey all -I figured I'd just tag onto this thread instead of making a whole new one.

I got all new internals for the buzzard. Now I really think this sear might not have been machined right, or something. The bolt stops a good 1/4" short of the end of the slot, if you push it even slightly it will AT.

SHould I just file down the sear?
