When transforming from gun to bot, you must always pull up the chest piece before you rotate it 90 degrees at the waist. If you only pull up the chest piece after you have rotated it 90 degrees (as most people, including me in the past do), you will botch up the internal mechanism - and then you cannot properly slide it back down when transforming to gun again.

This does not happen to USA releases or Megs, or any release of Megs without the pellet firing mechanism, but certainly applies to TFC Megs which has the pellet firing mechanism.
That is good to know. thanks for sharing Heroic
