    I've never had my 58 do that, but the first question is about cleaning. Do you know how to take it apart and clean it? The powder I use leaves pretty 'crispy' residue. Maybe that's why I've never had the problem. I shot mine alot last year and would clean it when the cup top of the piston got close to full. Other than that I just wiped it out real good with it cocked and made sure the holes were clear.

    Tron?
