The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

 Post subject: Problem with counter on snow wolf PR

My counter circuit has gone haywire! It counts up and down randomly when firing. Has anyone else had this problem? I don't know what to do with it I can't replace it, unless anyone has replaced theirs and has one spare? Hoping someone can help as it ain't a pulse if the ammo counter don't work!

try just manually pushing a bb through the light gate, does it go haywire then?

Or just semi, not full auto...

it seems to count fine when I push a cleaning rod in an out of the barrel. Maybe it's because I wired it into the main battery? The voltage may be going up and down when the motor runs. It does it on semi and full auto. Maybe I should put a voltage regulator in.

Personally,

I would keep them separate, and run the counter off a 9v bat or 3- 2032 coin batteries in series.

Yeah, probably a good idea. I only did it as the 9V is a bit vulnerable down there!
