Metadyne thumper isn't working *gasp*

Big surprise here guys, my thumper ceased to work properly. when I pull the trigger after I pump it, nothing happens. If I pump it again, it fires with the pump stroke.

The video can explain it better

(won't let me embed?)

The piston is tight, If I take the gun apart, and put it back together, I can get anywhere from 10-50 shots before it starts doing this again.

Thanks for any help.

It's a matter of the bolt sticking, I've had the same issue.
Best advice I can offer you is to clean, and lube up the front o-ring on the bolt.

Which version bolt do you have?

I typically carry one extra tube and give them 1 ball from it.

I'm an *** like that.

My Feedback!

Well, it's coming from the o-ring snagging on the housing.
