Its a JT B04999 (Thats what the gun says on the side). Its got a 14' progressive barrel, a electronic trigger (semi-auto is only option. it just keeps counts of shots and a game timer), and a $5 hopper. My cousin gave it to me since he doesn't use it. So I went to try it out to give it to my little bro. When I went to the paintball store to fill my tank the owner looked at me and said "wow thats a old gun". Told me its more then 7 years old.

Well I took it behind some warehouses to try it out. I tried some accuracy shots from about 35-40 feet. Very accurate gun. Then I picked up the speed a little. After 100 shots, I had about 5 blank shots, no chops, and about 7 shots where 2 balls came out. Very quite and clean gun. Trigger says its shot about 2000 balls in its lifetime (don't know if that can be reset). The blanks can be fixed with a electronic hopper but my question is, how can I fix the 2 balls at once thing?

After Ebay searching I think it might be a JT Excellerator.

Pics? If its got a plastic finger style detent like the VL guns use a lighter to soften the plastic and bend the finger. The JT BO4999 is more than likely a SN.

PbReview says that it's an Excellerator 5.0.

Here's (http://www.pbreview.com/products/reviews/1178/) their review.

Wow has good ratings! But im reading all this about chopped balls and I haven't chopped a single one after 300 shots. What about the double feed? Can anyone help?
