Not a Squatch...
Need PGP2 help...
I am getting quite angry at a PGP2 I've been trying to get to work. It barely punctures 12ies, and doesn't seem to cock all the way. I think I've narrowed it down to a hammer/sear problem. It doesn't seem like the hammer is latching all the back. It doesn't matter where the RVA is set, it won't lock against the sear. I've included some pics to help you brass experts help me get this thing working. I've replaced all the orings, springs, and valve pin already. I'm so annoyed with this thing.
Cart valve: Are the grip screw and air holes supposed to be offset 90 degrees like this?
Hammer with pin ( I think this pin may be part of the problem)
Sear: I can't tell if the sear needs replaced...

cartridge valve: screw hole and air hole should be 180 degrees out from each other
sear and hammer: hammer looks fine, sear a little worn, likely not the problem
to try next: the usual, assemble fully, then back the rva block out of the brass body a full turn, then reinstall the rear frame screw... that should allow the hammer to go back enough to engage the sear

I think your rear grip screw is a tad to long, and it is binding the spring in the rva. try that lock washer under the rear grip screw.
your valve alignment looks a little off. the holes sould be 180 degrees from each other.
Edit chplnstone was faster than I.
Stuff I want or need evenually

Timber, you going to SPE? I'm planning on it. If you'll be there and you can't get it going by then I'll take a look at it.

Like said above, 90% likely the problem is you are screwing the backcap in too far, not your fault they messed up making them. One or more turns out and it should fix your problem.
and the exhaust port on the cartridge needs to be facing up to the bolt.
