Products Used:
Stock Ball Detent.
Marker Setup: Black 2003 Vertical Feed Autococker, Empire Drop-Forward with On/Off, 14' Dye Ultralite Barrel, Orracle Bolt, Shocktech Rebuildable Ball Detent, WGP Cocking Rod, WGP Pull-Pin, Dye Beavertail, ViewLoader 12V Hopper, Java Preset N2.
Strengths: Easy to take apart, clean and rebuils.
Thumbscrewable so there's no need for tools.
Weaknesses: None except for the price.
Review: The stock ball detent that came with my marker could screw into the ball chamber. It used to jam the bolt in place, which resulted in me having multiple $4!+ fits. I had tried to Locktite it into place but another problem was that the ball seemed to get stuck halfway sometimes.

To install the Shocktech Rebuildable Ball Detent, you just put a bit of Locktite on the first three threads of the detent body, screw it into place until it touches the bolt, unscrew it a quarter-turn and let it dry. You then drop the ball in, then the spring and screw the cap.

I give it a 8 instead of a 10 because of the price and the ball is metal... delrin would have been nice.
Conclusion: If you need to replace your ball detent it would be a good choice because... read the review.

ne working detent
Marker Setup: ans gx-4 all delrin bolt 68/3000 kingman black n blue revvy and a freak
Strengths: Its easy to set up. It comes with an extra spring just incase something happens.
Weaknesses: The balls metal. I would rather have delrin.
Review: Theres not much to say its justa detent. It works good. way better than the stock. After using the stock detent about 2 times it broke. Hopefully this one will lasta bit longer. Im sure it will because shocktech usually makes very durable products. There hasnt been any problems so far.
Conclusion: Its a bit pricey but when i had purchased this item at my local paintball store, it wus 24.99. I only had a 20 on me so the guy at the counter just gave it to me for 20. This detent is one of the highest quality detents out on the market today. If u have the spare $$, GET IT!!!

Review: Lets face it, the stock detents on autocockers suck. Everyone I know who owns a cocker has had to replace them. For me, when I replace them this is my weapon of choice. I have never tried any others simply because the first one I got worked so well. Now I have them on all my cockers and have never had a single problem. They even include an extra spring just in case you lose the original or need to replace it.

Conclusion: Love this product, if you need a new detent--- buy it. If you don't-- buy it for when you do.
