AGM Mk2 Cycling issues solved

Just a heads up to other AGM sten gun owners who have noticed the gun seizing up when the trigger is pulled sometimes. The first time I used my sten gun at a game, at various moments pulling the trigger the mechbox would fail to cycle.

Upon Disassembly the gun has no switch like an ordinary AEG. The mechbox has two contacts and electrical current is run through the trigger itself.

Looking at the trigger it appears during the painting of the gun, parts of the trigger that act like the electrical contact received a dusting of paint. All it takes is a few minutes with a file to clean off the trigger/switch contact points, and the Sten will cycle every time the trigger is pulled (Assuming nothing else goes wrong) .
