So I disassemble my UTG L96 rifle in order to replace the spring. I reassembled the cylinder as it should be, but for some reason when I cock back the spring, something is preventing it from "springing" back into place, where I could pull the trigger. I truly cannot fathom what this would be, as the trigger box remains unbroken and unaltered from its original state. Any ideas?

When you cock the bolt back, it should NOT spring back into place. That is what we call slam firing. Something us snipers have night mares about, and fear for our wallet's life.

Thats not quite what I meant. The bolt is getting stuck, just before it re-enters the... bolt housing? It has something to do with the two levers that stick out of the top of the trigger housing, they won't allow it to go back in after the spring is cocked and ready to fire.

Toast is right, the UTG is prone to having the spring guide stopper sneak out the bottom. If this is the problem, just add some tape to the bottom of the hole where the spring guide stopper sticks out.

Assuming that the spring guide stopper is one of the nubs that sticks out of the top of the trigger housing (sorry, Im not entirely sure what each part is, despite my research) Im not sure thats it. Both of them bend down to allow the bolt to pass through, there seems to be no problem with their flexibility. The attached photo is a picture of the place the bolt gets stuck at.

Upon closer inspection, I have noticed that the screw pannels that attach the trigger housing to the cylinder housing have started to crack. Would this somehow effect the bolt?

The bit sticking out the bottom of the trigger unit (infront of the trigger), is the spring guide stopper.
Slide it down and see if the bolt goes fully home.
And no, I don't think the cracks are what's causing the bolt jam... Still not good though.

Had the same problem, but no this does not affect it. Unless they are fully cracked and provide no housing for the screw to go in, it should not have an affect.

Ohh, in that case I have tried that. I removed the spring guide stopper, and the bolt still refuses to go back into place when only the trigger housing was screwed to the bottom.
:(" title=":mad:" border="0"/> The bolt is allowed to move backwards and cock the spring quite easily, but then it stops completely at the point in the picture (even when theres no stopper)

The handle I pull on itself? I believe so, although if its not I suppose I wouldnt really know, would I? How would the bolt handle being improperly assembled affect its ability to be drawn back, but not slide forward?
