Dm8 bouncy trigger help

Hello lovely people, I am in need of assistance!

Got a dm8 and when pressed the micro switch registers 2 shots instead of 1.

Here's what I've done so far:

Changed trigger sens in settings, from 1 to 20 and it makes no difference.

Changed trigger spring

Changed trigger in general

Adjusted trigger no end....

Tried it on Millenium and semi auto and it doesn't make a difference

No amount of changing settings makes a blind bit of difference

Changed battery

If I press the micro switch down without the trigger and just my finger, it double taps too!

Tried it eyes on and off...

However, it's currently on Millenium 10bps and despite the double shots it is still capped properly...

Sorry for the late reply, but this sounds like the switch itself might be on its way out - if its registering two shots even when you hold the trigger down it suggests the actual contact plate inside the microswitch is damaged.

If you are a bit of a DIY enthusiast you can source these switches from a Maplins or similar type store. Alternatively we do sell replacement boards - you can order these by contacting our technical support team technik@dyeprecision.com
