Nelson won't catch

Well, it catches, but it doesn't always. Took the Nelson out to the local field, and when I cock the marker, I have to really push the arm back for the bolt to catch onto the sear of the hammer. It is a classic Nelson body with new stock Phantom internals, and the stock Nelson sear. Once it catches, she moves like butter, and on the way back, I feel no kink. So, any ideas?

Hmmm...

Velocity adjustment too far in?

Does it burp/fart when you cycle the action?

No burp are fart, don't know about velocity adjustment though. Stock main and valve spring, chrono'd at 262.

Bring out velocity adjustment (lowering your fps) see if it gets u a more consistent action.

I ran into this trying to max out fps in cold weather using 12gr's

Pictures help

Your sear may be sitting at too much of an angle.

You could grind away a little bit behind the sear pin and you could also grind a slight ramp onto the sear catch to help it over the lip of the bolt.

Sear

Make sure that the rear frame screw is not stripping. That would cause the body the lift off of the frame a bit and interfere with cocking. Just a thought.

Took pictures last night, just need to upload them. While taking it apart though, it seems my main spring is a little stiff. So, i'm gonna try getting a lighter spring and see if that helps. Rear screw is fine, and the sear seems to be catching the bolt okay. I'll post up the pictures tonight if I get a chance.
