so I have a piranha gti 07 and my problem is I'll get about ten shots off then the bolt will stay foward so I have to recock it again any suggestions on how to fix it?

I'm assuming this gun is a Spyder clone. If it is, try putting some lube on the striker o-ring. Good luck.

1. Clean off bolt
1a. If there are any o-rings on the bolt, lube them
2. clean out bolt chamber/tube (the top tube where the bolt goes and you screw in the barrel)
3. Clean off and lube o-ring on hammer.
4. Make sure they isn't any crap in the feed neck.

If you do this and it still is having problems, come back and I'll have more stuff for ya ;)

I clean it and lube it after every time I play and switch out the o rings on the bolt about every month and still have had the problem. could it be the spring?

Did you try what junkie said? I've noticed that on some guns, it's strange.

If that's not it, it could be the spring. Otherwise it sounds like it isn't getting enough air to cycle after a few shots. Possibly a problem with the hammer/rammer? So:

-Does the hammer look like it's in good condition?
-What is the range of shots you get before the bolt stays forward? Like 1-10 or 5-20 or something, a range is really what I need to help you the most, not an average.

the range of where the bolt will stay foward in ammount of shots is anywhere from 1-200 but the thing is it at least happens once a game and I don't understand why my tank is filled to 3000, theres no leaks, the bolt and striker o rings are fine, everythings lubed perfectly. the major thing is that when I'm snapshooting or shooting lanes it'll stop and I wont get as many shots that I'd like. I had this problem with the stock piranha trigger and my e-trigger so I know that's not it. I just found out that this could be an actual problem this weekend because I found out that all the other guys at my field that use mechanical guns never had this problem to this extenct.

Yeah definitely look into throwing a new spring in there and see if that helps. They could probably throw a new one in your gun to check if that's it for no charge.
Other than that, how does the striker itself look? Is there a lot of wear on it or are there any chips?

the striker and bolt are in perfect condition and the spring has been cut once but it was just one loop of the spring

Alright. Did your problem start any time around when you cut the spring?

Yes this is the most logical thing I can think of right now. Try one of these:
-A new spring
-Cutting yours further
-Backing out your velocity screw (I assume it has one, being a spyder clone)

I got a 32* spring back when I was using my MR1, it worked pretty well.

Hello,
I own a '06 prianah gti.
My marker came with 2 hammer springs, white and blue. PMI also has "Red" available. "Spring tension in order from strongest to weakest-red,blue, then white". I have always used the white one. I haven't cut it. I use C02 and only have recocking problems in cold weather.
Hope that helps.
