UTG L96 Bolt Pull will not go down

I pulled the bolt back without the clip in and when i tryed to push it back down to fire it locked up when comletely forward.

The gun is only a month old and the 30 day ran out the day before this happened. i dont know enough to take it apart, or what is even wrong with it. if anyone has had the same problem or knows the problem can help me out, I would appreciate it.

Thanks, MiTcH

So what you're saying is that you pushed the bolt forward, it went forward all the way, but now it will not fire?

Did you put the magazine in and try to fire a round off? Have you checked if your safety was on?

He said he fired it with no magazine in the gun. So there is no bb jam.

it seems to be forward all the way, but it will not go down. becasuse it wont go down with the mag in or out the trigger is locked like it is on saftey, but saftey is not on

HAHA, I had the same exact problem and had to completely disassemble my trigger assembly. There is a vertical pin that holds the spring in the compressed position, and there are two small springs that make this pin move backwards when the bolt is pulled backward to fully cocked position. If even one of these tiny springs bends/breaks or falls out of its slot, the pin will not move to a vertical position and it will not hold the spring compressed and it will not allow the bolt to return forward. The pin at this point is more than likely in a forward position, which it should never be in, it should either be pointing towards the shooter at a 45%ish degree angle when the spring is uncompressed or vertical when the spring is compressed. The only thing to do is detach the trigger assembly from the barrel and spring and then take apart the assembly. There should be one or two tutorials on youtube about putting the assembly back together. If this doesn't work you PM me and I'll see if I can help you more.

just put the bolt down and then tighten it to where it moves.. keep a small screw driver with you because it will get looses and flop about

Loc-Tite, solves the whole thing. Also try keeping your thumb on the rear of the bolt assembly when you pull it back to keep it from trying to rotate if you don't want to Loc-Tite it. Plus you can break Loc-Tite easy so its not like you won't ever be able to get it off again.

Ummm no. You cannot break Red Loc-tite at all. The Blue Loc-tite is meant to be broken. The Red will require heat(read:torch) to melt the Loc-tite away.
