Since the detents are basically a flexible stooper for the ball and having them strong enough and flexible is an issue, I got to thinking. What if we were to re-inforce them internally with something flexible and thin like thin brass wire sold at the hobby store. It could be put in just far enough through the detent to act as a skeleton without breaking the skin of the detent. Should add a lot more rigidity without the cost of fleixiblity. Keep in mind I am speaking of brass wire in diameter of no more than a hypodermic needle...

doesnt sound like a bad idea, might be too strong or too long, experiment and let us know

One problem I foresee is the bolt wearing through the rubber and exposing the wire.

does the bolt normally wear the detent ?

I thought of that also shunut. Also, if the wirewas to tuff, the detent would stay pointing foward after it recocks.

ok..tried it and with what I had to work with it was not good. The brass wire at that short of a length was TOO stiff to flex. It would have sliced into the pb when fired. So I didnt even bother trying it in the gun. THen I tried using jewellery wire and that was too soft resulting in what oldironmudder theorized. It stayed pointing forward. ooh well It was worth a shot LOL

before u give up what about picture hanging wire it seems like it would be the right strength to use...

You know of a marker known as the autococker? It has screw in detents that have a ball & spring to hold the ball. Some are rebuildable.
