    I bought a pack of thunder V grenades yesterday and upon trying to get the spring back and pin in the spring wouldn't catch the spoon and would snap back
    It is a plastic spoon but does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    It is kind of a PITA. You have to manually pull back the hammer mechanism of the core with your thumb on one hand. Pull the spoon back down into positon over the hammer with your other hand so that the spoon catches the hammer and keeps it from flipping forward. While you have the spoon holding down the hammer, push the pin through the hole in the spoon to secure the assembly with the hammer held back. Be sure to do this procedure without a CO2 ampule in the sylinder/core. Once the spoon and hammer assembly are locked with the pin, unscrew the bottom of the core, insert the CO2 ampule and screw the cap back on. Then screw on the grenade body. You should be good to go at that point.

    I know it's a pain n the *** isn't it
    There's an intermediate hole set back about 1/4" from the top pin location use that to hold your hammer back until u can grab the hammer with the spoon. Once u have it you'll b able to pull it right back. Good idea to not load co2 cartridge I found out the hard wAy

    Oh no my spoon doesn't even catch the spring the spring will completely miss it and hit the hammer after immediately pulling the spring

    ImageUploadedByAirsoft Society1448859834.354173.jpg basically the spring completely misses the spoon and starts the primer immediately
    I don't know what to do to make it work like a proper hand grenade (ignore my awesome background)
