UTG MK96

Postby EvilTwin » Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:36 am

Alright.
So I have owned my L96 for about four year now and fired around over 1000 rounds through it. I was going to take it to a scenario game, but when I took it out to do some target practice. The bolt randomly snapped back forward and automatically shot a bb after pulling the bolt back. I thought it was a jam or something but when I pulled it again it once again snapped back forward and fired. I took apart the sniper and found the black plastic box housing the trigger to be cracked. My friend said it might be the trigger sear, since that is how his L96 broke. I don't what caused this and I was wondering if there is any hope of repairing it? I really love this gun.

It sounds like a worn sear at first but if the trigger box was cracked that bad it could just be bending under pressure which could cause a slam fire. You'll need to purchase a metal trigger box to get your gun working again, You could go with a Zero Trigger or Evike's metal trigger box with no sears in it.

So it might just be a trigger box? And how can you tell if the sear was worn down?

Yes if your trigger box is cracked and or broken you'll need a new one. Even if your sear isn't worn the trigger box will bend out of place when you pull the bolt back thus making the sear slip and slam fire. If you look closely at the piston sear and see a chip missing you need a new piston sear, if you're unsure you can post a picture and I can help you.

Alright. I will do that when I get back. Give me a few days. :) I should have the pics up by Saturday.

EDIT: :shock: I just looked at the links you sent me... :o those upgrade parts are super expensive! I don't think my wallet is going to agree with this :lol: don't they have like factory replacement parts? :oops:

EDIT 2: I looked around Evike and found these, would these cheaper alternatives work?

You can tell that the trigger sear is worn out by it having a dip towards the center of it.

Also, you want both a metal trigger box and upgraded sears. Just buying one will leave the other weak. I have this, and there is absolutely no wear after thousands of shots with a 170SP spring, but it is out of stock.

I know, I saw that on GI too!

And I know sniping is not cheap, I was not really willing to spend close to 150 dollars on parts, I might as well buy a new sniper with that much money.
I'm okay with spending no more than 75 dollars.

Then you would have two snipers with broken sears lol :P

Point taken.

I also have another problem...
I have two mags, and one of them doesn't just won't slide in the magwell. It will click into place after forcing it in, but when you use the mag release, it just won't pop out. The only way to get it out is by prying it...

EDIT: So I got a new trigger assembly, and now it works again!
