    Ok the internals for my recon seem to be in good shape but not in working order.

    I check the internals directory and it looks pretty much identical!

    Help is much appreciated.

    Ok when you say not firing do you mean that it primes normally but the darts are not firing

    No not priming, but I try to reconfigure the internals with the priming bar 4 times but it didn't prime.

    This is probably a very simple idea but try removing all loose parts and reassembling just incase you put something in wrong.

    So if it doesn't move freely it means something is assembled incorrectly or somethings broken.

    This may sound stupid and probably is but are you sure that the plunger tube hasn't broken?

    If the recon is not priming, it is most likely the catch.

    Check the catch, catch frame and catch spring.

    If the catch on the plunger tube is worn out, you will need to get a new plunger tube. Or you may need to add a another catch spring.

    It's definetly there. Also I may have found the problem!!!

    My anti-slip pad that I used in the plunging tube is quite thick, therefore the plunging tube can't press down on the bolt sled. Just a theory.

    If your padding is too thick the plunger doesn't depress a tiny lock on the boltsled, so that's probably your problem.

    From just looking at the last picture, make sure that the plunger tube is lined up perfectly, don't know if it's just me or not, but it looked a little misaligned.

    Drill a hole through the back of the plunger, poke out the old padding, put in new padding, proceed with filling that hole you drilled with 3 day epoxy. This will ensure that your padding will stay there as well as serving to fill the hole.

    Yeah thanks for all the support guys, grabbed a flat head took out old padding, shot twice, gonna undo again and add new padding, my mums coming back tomorrow from her work trip to Sydney, so I asked her to buy some anti-slip pads when she gets back.

    Why not? If the padding is stuck there how are you going to get it out? Telekinesis? Whats wrong with drilling a hole and filling it up? Sure enough the OP managed to get it out with a flathead, but for people like me who epoxy the padding on (for plungertube reinforcement) wouldnt have had it so easy.

    Good point, I did not think of that (using epoxy), that would be a bit of an issue.
