I bought this wheelie about 5 months ago. After about 200 rounds or so the cylinder plunger spring has malfunctioned.
It sticks or sticks as soon as it hits the frame, making the gun unusable.
I can use it if I hold back the cylinder release, cock it, but the cylinder stills falls open.

I gotta either send it back for 2 months of no shootie or find a smith that will fix it.
How much do you think it will run me to have this repaired?
And has anyone else had this problem?

Edited for a couple type errors ;D

I'd seriously think about shipping it back under the warranty. But you could talk to your local gunsmiths and see what they'll charge.

It might not take eight weeks but that sounds like an average time according to this thread:

nevermind,
I fixed it myself :clap:
I took it apart, had a helluva time getting the cylinder dismantled, but got it.
There was a tiny, and I mean tiny, metal shaving stuck on the nipple that holds back the release.
:yipee:
