Cheers for the upload paddy, unfortunately, literally everything fell apart. There is no way I would be able to figure any of this out. But at least I gave it a shot at opening it up, lol

Thanks guys, I've already placed my order at airgunsource.com. should be here in 2 days.

Well, my second Steel Force is having the exact same issues as my first one. Just jams up / stops firing. When it jams up, if I knock on the right side of the gun, where all the gears and charging pull is, it fires off a round, I then pull the charge again and it still won't fire.

So I pull the charge like 5 more times in a row, and it'll fire off either one single burst in single fire mode or if in 6 fire burst, it'll fire off one burst.

Meanwhile, my friend with the Steel Storm hasn't had one single issue with his gun. We both have the JimC bulk air kits with 20oz CO2 tanks connected.

I just don't understand why the Steel Force has so many issues and why the Steel Storm is fine, considering they're supposed to have the exact same innards...right?

Unless it's just a matter of me being unlucky twice in a row...

What do you guys think?

Really crappy video, first time using the video on the phone, and I am holding the phone with one hand and shooting with the other.
This one has the full auto mod and my trigger fix mod done.

The trigger does not put much force on the sear. If the bolt is not very well lubed, it will remain open, and not fire.

Hey gang. I'm new to airguns. I bought a umarex steel force on a whim. I wasn't expecting much, but when it arrived that changed. It is just so much fun. I love seeing the expressions on my friends faces when they hear the six round burst for the first time. Since seeing mine, five guys now own one. But sadly, I didn't send in my warranty card. So when mine quit working I was SOL. It would no longer fire, but would if hit on the side. Like the guys here mentioned. I lubed mine every time I changed co2 so I couldn't imagine that being the prob. So I took it apart. I read online that there are lots of springs so I was careful. From what I can tell, from mine, is that long skinny part that sits behind the trigger was bent. The part is in the photos I've seen on here. It's the part you can see move when pulling the trigger, and looking in the magazine receiver. I took it out, carefully straightened it, put it back together and it works. Sorry for the long winded message.

Excellent post; I discovered the same thing. It's a design flaw. That bolt release lever should be made out of a stronger metal that won't bend when you repeatedly pull the trigger.
