View Full Version : Odd Ball loading .... Very odd ???

Not that this is a problem, it does make me wonder the why ??

My Gun listed below is just a Great working spyder, but it keeps doing a NON FEED when operating in FULL AUTO. (If I rip a 50/75 ball string it may do it once)
This is just screwing around, not during game play :p

Gun will be ripping right along at @ 14BPS (Board cap) then every so often .. BANG, a NO ball cycle of the bolt. Gun re-cocks and continues full auto without issue.

Whats weird no ball gets chopped, no pieces go out barrel ... just a complete fire cycle with no ball.

How the hell is this possible using a force feed hopper like a Halo-b ?

Batteries are low on juice? No idea.

Maybe the Halo just skips a ball. Do you have rip drive? That would solve the problem I think.

yea, just a gap in the feeing, or a slightly misshaped ball, or something causing it to not drop all the way into the bolt. do you have the ACS by chance? i used to have that all the time with my electra

are you getting any blowback up the tube? i know on my guns, if there's too much it'll skip alot. but that's with a revy XP and my qloader applies continuous pressure, so i don't have that problem with it
