I recentally bought a Maverick from my local pb store. It was working
fine the first day but i then took it apart and put it back together
just for the hell of it. For some reason now when i*** it it loads a
ball but I am unable to fire it. Then for some reason I can*** it
again, and again , and again...which shouldn't happen... any ideas?

Isn't the maverick a pump gun anyway?

OK, I think I know your problem. This happened on my friend's maverick when
he just got it.
Take the Mav apart.Make sure you don't lose that little spring thats sitting
in the slot in the bottom of the gun. That's important. Now, take the big
fat spring and slide it over the tube on the hammer (the big silvery part)
then slide that onto the bolt so the hammer will catch on that ridge on the
bolt, with the spring between the two. If you can't press them together with
your hands until they latch together, you can use the velocity adjuster, the
big, long allen wrench, and turn the front of the bolt until they do. That
fixed my friend's marker. Saw the same thing on another one so I took that
ring off of the barrel sot he pump arm could move back farther and that
helped. But try that last.

Or it needs to be gassed up- silly thing about nelson-based guns, they need
CO2 pressure before you can fire them. How goofy. ; )
