    So it seems that my G&P's gb locks up alot when I use semi. And one of my friends who works at an airsoft store just said its all G&P's. I just wanna know if anyone else gun has that problem.

    It's because all of those companies either have bad shimming or bad motor.
    Reshim the GB and swap motor if needed.

    GB doesn't just lock up for no reasons...
    It's common for G&P to shim the gears too tightly together.

    The ONLY company that knows how to shim is G&G....(Nop, not even Systema PTW)
    Unfortunately their internal is...meh....

    Yeh full auto seems to be the only way to fix the problem.

    I bought a new selector plate (my stock one snapped) and I haven't had that problem since then. My guess is that while the gun shoots the vibration can shift the stock plate a little and make it activate the cutoff lever as though it were on safe. The stock plate is really flexible.

    EDIT: a stiffer selector plate spring would probably fix it.

    Most of the time their shimming is "good enough" so you really don't need to unless the shims are worn out.

    I dont think its shimming. G&P are shimmed pretty well, i would expect decent shimming from a company like them.

    I have a g&p and had that problem but I adjusted the motor height a little and now the semi works really good but with an occasional fail

    Um, no, G&P doesn't shim well...
    The gears are meshing against each other.....

    Depends on the individual gun. Every gun is shimmed independently, therefore some will be better then others.

    True but most of the time the gears are meshing with each other....

    Or it could be your not pulling the trigger all the way through and so the gears are only making half a rotation. Lots of people blame their guns on this but sometimes it can be the way you operate it. Its more common for them to lock up when you pull the trigger half way and your using a lower voltage battery.

    Nope its not my trigger pull, once i tested it out making sure i did slow and full trigger pulls and it still locks up, and my G&P is the only gun that does that.

    G&P dose a quality job in their shimming. I've opened the ver 3 gearbox in my M4 and it's not the shims.
