RT Pro not firing on first shot

I have an RT Pro and when I first air it up and when it sits aired up between games I have trouble getting it to shoot. The trigger feels slightly limp. It will fire after I pull the trigger back about 5-10 times. What do you guys suggest I look at first? It is chrono'ing in at around 270 fps, and I has no leaks that i can hear?

Lvl 10?

If so you need to retune it. Probably bolt stick.

Are you only able to chrono at 270 or is that what you have it set at? I'm assuming an X valve with Level X? If Level X, how well is it tuned? Have you taken it apart and cleaned it well? Oiled? Try adjusting the Field Strip screw. They can sometimes be finicky. Finger tight! How is your trigger pin set? should be about a business cards space between the back of the trigger and the sear rod on an Intelliframe.

It is possible to have a combination of problems with the bolt, on/off, and/or regulator. The bolt can leak off slowly, the reg sticks, or the on/off sticks from lack of pressure.

It happened to me once in an all night scenario. fortunately it got real quiet at one point and I could barely hear the hiss from the bolt. Normally the reg would open up, but it was probably past oil time.

Got oil?

Bolt stick would be typical though.
My Feedback

some things are stickier than others
