MP7 only fires 2-3 meters

Hi folks, yesterday during an event my Daughters MP7 seems to have developed a problem where it can only fire 2-3 meters (luckily happened in the last game of the day) I doubt its related but I had just changed the battery right before the match, but was still running the same type of 7.4v just the one out of my UMP.

the MP7 still fires & there is no unusual noise or anything (no grinding from the gearbox) the gels only travel about 1-2 meters though, I was thinking maybe the return spring has snapped ? i cannot hear anything rattling around loose though. Got home quite late so I have not tried pulling it apart yet.

Any other theories on what might be wrong ?

your o ring is probably on the way out

It would most likely be the tappet return spring

It can only be a dead O ring, a massive air leak between the nozzle and T piece or massively undersize or oversize gels…

If you look through the magwell into the T piece when firing you should see if the nozzle is working properly if not it would be the return spring

It could be one of many things the only way is to pull it down and look :wink:
Broken tappet spring
Broken or loose nozzle rubber tip
Piston o ring
Broken tappet plate
Broken t piece
Broken or loose piston head
