Not enough power to trip sear
hey i have an old spyder eframe and everything seems to be in working order but when it's cocked and the striker is up against the sear the piston is not powerful enough to trip the sear and release the striker and bolt. i tried lightening up the main spring but nothing. could it be the capacitor possibly? any help would be appreciated

Sounds like your battery is weak. IIRC, I think the original batteries were 9.6v instead of regular 9's, so even if you have a new battery it still might not be enough.

Also, if the top of your capacitor bulges out at all then it's toast. My money's on the battery though.
