I feel like it happened AFTER I started pumping it when I pulled it lut of the box. Like I knocked it loose?

Nelson based pumps won't cock like a normal semi, you need to have air attached.

You should use your manual to look at the schematic. There is two screws holding the frame to the receiver, one at the rear of the gun below where the tank attaches and one before the trigger guard. The screws have washers to prevent them from backing please verify you have these type of screws.

If any of this doesn't make sense, I'm sorry I'm not a tech by trade. Call us on Monday 888-546-4626 and press 0 for the operator and ask for a tech. We will straighten everything out for you.

Most nelson valves don't cock without air, so that's normal. Grip frame screws appear to be recessed (or held on by magic) so probably check on the back part of the frame, and in the area above the trigger.

Edit: beat to the punch and my theory of magic was wrong

slam see if you can get a video up of the loose screws.

as for the pumping, they are both right, nelsons usually don't cock unless aired up, it's normal.

You know I had a tough time screwing in the feed neck, but after the techs got done laughing at me they showed me how easy it was. Well at least it looks easy when they do it. I guess if you do it enough, it becomes easy.
