Review: Ive used this gun at 3 games so far, i took it too a Big Day And Out Game (about 1,200 people were there). This gun was great for the first game which was about an hour and a half, second game it was chopping way too much for me to use so i went in the shop and bought a Halo, it still chopped but not as much. 3rd Game it didnt even work the damn balls were rolling out of the barrel so i replaced the battery, changed the o ring, changed the o ring on the Co2 tank, cleaned it..Still didnt work at this point i took the gun apart..horrible idea leave the gun together it has more allen bolts then there were allen holes that needed them way to confusing to take it apart while it was working it was a great gun, heavy as hell tho. 2 weeks later i try it again same problem
Conclusion: Maybe i just have bad luck, i still havint got the gun checked out but maybe i just got a bad one off the shelf but when it was working it was awesom, i recomend this gun just me 100% sure it works before you take it anywhere.

The problem you're having is that you need to replace the detent. I had the same problem when i first bought mine, then I replaced it, and it worked flawlessly. If you don't know what the detent is, it's a little piece of rubber inside the feedneck. It keeps the balls from rolling out of the barrel. The stock one is a piece of junk, and you can replace it with a bob long intimidator detent. This should stop the chopping, and balls coming out of the barrel.

If a detent fixes this gun i would be supprised, the gun has a bolt that is under sized and allows gas to pass around it up into the hopper, causing balls to be blown away from the feed hole , after a couple shots the balls cant get down into the breech quik enough causing a chopped ball, this is the ugliest break you can have, currently the only fix is a halo, it forces balls into the gun. and that doesnt always fix it completely, there is alot of speculation on this guns problem, but this is the actual problem. look no more.

well if you have a force feed hopper like a halo b or vlocity the air gowin up the feedneck wont be a problem. i have a vlocity and my mr2 hasnt choped 1 ball with it.
