    E-LCD Mag (Booyah) frame issues...any help appreciated.

    Hey guys,

    I have a couple of E-LCD Mag frames. The LCD screens work. The trigger switches work, and the solenoid works.

    HOWEVER, the solenoid does not seem strong enough to cause the sear to trip. I HAVE A BRAND NEW BATTERY TOO. It's the same on both frames.

    With the frame off, I can press against the solenoid plunger with an allen wrench and pull the trigger to watch the plunger push against the wrench. It doesn't seem strong enough to handle the pressure the on/off pin is applying to the sear. This is with a Classic valve running CA.

    Were the solenoids just weak? Were they regularly replaced? Is there an easy fix? Should I send it to Luke?

    Any response is appreciated

    Sounds correct. You need at least the equivalent of an RT on/off in the valve to lighten the load on the solenoid. Some of these old e-frames came with a new on/off assembly for that reason. BigEvil has tinkered with these, iirc.

    Cant use a regular on/off for it. Either need the Booyah or centerflag specific on/off assembly, or a ULT (which wont run in a classic valve)
    I love booyahh frames, they are fantastic!

    Try using a RT on/off with a .740 pin. You can also try to use the emag quad oring if that still doesnt work. That noid will have trouble with a classic on/off assembly for sure.
