Sear/Trigger Problem

I have been having a slight issue with my Garg. I cock it and pull forward to shoot it, but then if I take the pressure off the pump and try and shoot it with one hand, the pump comes back with the trigger and often unless I pull forward, it won't shoot. I took it apart and to me it looks like the sear on the back bolt is having trouble getting tripped by the trigger pull, and when the trigger pulls back, it pulls both bolts and the pump handle back. Suggestions?

Thanks, Maniac3641

Two return springs might help keep the pump forward?

Trigger

You should not have to use 2 springs on the pump.

Let me know if you need help. It should not be doing that but from time to time it does happen. And oddly, it's the pixies. They must be mad at you because it's still winter.

Put everything back together, tighten the nuts on both the guide rod and the connecting rod, and give it a try. It's a tolerance thing I believe and it happens if only for a moment until you kinda realign things.

Sonny Lopez played the snot out of it with no issues so I am sure that it's fine.

But let me know.

I had this issue with the RTR slide frame on my Phantom...Not really a problem for me as I hold the pump anyway,but,to correct it I just shaved a little off of the sear catch on the sear itself (The U Shaped part of it that engages the bolt.Had to do it to 2 different sears as I messed up the first time).....since doing that I've never had that issue again.If you decide to do this mod you have to be very careful not to shave off too much or it'll slip off everytime you pump it

Alright, I'll take it apart again and see what's going on. If the problem persists, I'll look into the sear trimming. Thanks guys.

Ok, so I tried trimming the sear a little bit and tightening and repositioning the nuts and it still is persisting. I was afraid to trim down the sear too much. I think the main problem is that it just isn't adjusted right. I have taken it apart quite a few times, but it seems everything is in order.

It shoots/pulls fine if I squeeze the trigger fast, but if I squeeze on it slowly the handle/bolt comes back with the trigger pull.

Hmm...It's still doing it. Its not a huge deal as I can still play with it. Is there a picture of someones Garg where I could get a closeup of the pump rods and the internals and how they are all adjusted/oriented? Just to double check I have everything right.
