My A5 is running like a well oiled machine until my last couple of games where it would go full auto after doing a quick burst of 6-8 shots, I would grab the cocking handle to stop it then re cock it and boom running great again until i did another quick burst, any ideas?

This will happen when the air gets too low to fully recock itself on the sear - (particularly if it seemed to burp for the burst)
This would make sense for the last games, unless of course you had refilled your air

Potentially it could be a lower pressure regulator on your cylinder which isn’t refreshing quickly enough and starving the A5 of enough air to fully recock, but recovering after each burst when you manually cock


Next perhaps a clean up. Wipe down the insides, check the main bolt o-ring, give it some fresh oil/lube

After that check the sear & bolt condition for any wear that could stop them getting good contact to lock open
