trigger did not reset

M4-22 Elite rifle. After the first 75 rounds on a new rifle, the trigger began not resetting after firing.

Couldn't figure it out, at first, then I 'solved' the problem by manually 'pulling' the trigger back with my finger. It was binding somehow.

Brought it home, careful cleaning and re-lube, lots of manually working the whole mechanism, seems like it'll be fine but of course this can be found out only at the range. Gotta get back there.

--> Anyone else have a similar experience?

Other than this probably teething-pain type event, I am delighted so far.

Not sure if you figured this out or not. I recently had the same issue on an elite pistol I just bought. I think they had the trigger spring in backwards. I turned it around and haven’t had any more issues with the trigger reset.

My trigger pin walked, and caused a non reset malfunstion.

Mine just needed a bit of polishing, it turned out, but I ended up getting a different drop in trigger (other threads cover this topic) anyway.

Had mine out yesterday for this first time in a long while. You're right, you can go through the ammo with the Tippmann, 45 rounds of 'testing' happened in what seemed like a few moments.

Running with Federal Automatch from Walmart at 6 cents a round. Unfortunately this ammo is notorious lately for 2-5% FTFs. On the other hand, it is clean and groups well.

Please post what anti walk pins you end up getting and how you like them.

Please help. I am having this issue with my new M4-22. It started right from new, when I was trying to find what ammo it likes best for accuracy. At the time I didn't think much about it, because I thought it could have just been different brands. Also, I thought it could have been the factory trigger, which I was going to swap out anyway. Now trigger group installed and hit a competition today. After about 20 rounds, it practically became a bolt action (every 2-3 rounds I had to charge it manually). Between strings I would oil the bolt up real good and that would get me another 20-30 rounds before it was back to messing up again. Any ideas?

Since it's new..
You should call Tippmann Arms and send it in for repair before it gets worse

Tippmann007, That is the plan, as soon as I get it back to house. I'm still out of state at the event. I thought I would pop on and see if there were any known easy fixes.
