This autococker is being a royal pain in the arse!!!

In short , the lug is not catching the sear . I can cock it by hand and the lug catches the sear just fine . The problem happens when I air it up and fire it . When aired up and fired , the sear just does not catch . I've done just about everything I can think of to advance and retard the timing . I've checked the sear and lug for excessive wear , I've screwed the lug in , out , and everywhere between the point where the sear wont catch at all in both extremes . I've raised and lowered the LPR pressure , I've tweaked the screw that connects the trigger rod to the three-way , I've been through two bottles of air making sure I'm not short stroking the trigger . The only thing I can think of right now that might cause this is the sear spring . Tomorrow I will be going to the hardware store to find a stiffer spring . Until then , anyone have any other thoughts or suggestions ?

Have you adjusted the cocking rod shorter?

Yep , I've had that screwed all the way in to the point where the bolt was halfway blocking the feedneck as well.

If the timing is too far in either direction, it can give you that problem. Try to get the timing very tight, and see if it helps.

If you pieced the gun together, there is a chance you have enough out of tolerance bits that added together just won't work. If you are using a WGP body, use their front block, back block, ram, Xway and innards...modify AFTER it runs.

2 cents...

Heres a few things to look a that can cause that problem
one could be the LPR being to high or to low.
next your IVG could be in to far back it out flush then screw it in 3 turns in.
Also depending if you replaced the hammer spring it could be to stiff
another thing to check is trigger sear spring if its to light that can let the hammer slide over it.

I hope some this helps. I do tuning services heres the link

The easy way to see if it is sear spring tension is to just open the grips up, and try to cycle the gun while pressing up on the spring to give it a little more strength.

Today I changed out the hammer spring for the lightest one I have . I was thinking that might also have been a possibility since I had the heaviest hammer spring in the kit installed . Hammer still doesn't catch even after I went to the lightest hammer spring . I am still leaning toward the sear spring being the culprit .

Aside from this one issue , everything else is functioning as it should.

You can stretch out a sear spring a bit or put a screw under it inside the frame to act as a spacer.
