Default G18 issues.....

While runing my g18 through propane, the slide would pull back half way and release the gas. I have no Idea what caused this issue. It seems like the hammer gets stuck on the gas release nozzle and doesn't budge. Any help?

You are not lubing the gun enough. When putting propane into the mag, get a drop of silicone oil in the valve. It will lube it. Do this before every fill.

Trust me I am lubing it. The slide is wet when I take it apart. And I have put silicon in the propane, but not after every use. Thanks.

Alright, try to take the valves apart and lubricate the o-rings well. If that does not help, there is a problem inside the mechanism. This procedure will help us to rule options out.

If IIRC this happened to my G23. Do you have a KWA/KSC? I believe that your rocket valve may be broken.

I'm not so sure kwa but I know that my we 1911 that problem happens every once in a while if the hop-up chamber is not screwed in tight enough. This also happened on my HFC g17. Try tightening those screws if there are any.

Quick update. After running my pistol a couple more times, the trigger would be pulled and nothing would happen. I do beleive this to be because of the hammer assembly, but i can't confirm it. Any help?
