Tech Note 1185 Detail

Projectile ejects prematurely.

Affected Products:

ME-6800 Projectile Launcher (Short Range)
ME-6801 Projectile Launcher (Long Range)

The projectile ejects before the trigger is pulled.

PASCO Solution:
This is usually caused when the barrel edge wears out after several years of use. To solve the problem, follow the directions below:
  1. Trigger the launcher and remove the projectile
  2. Turn the cartridge in the barrel ten degrees clockwise.

If this does not fix the issue, the trigger spring may need to be replaced. Please contact Teacher Support for replacements.
