Go with Timmys (http://www.discountpaintball.com/paintball-gun-parts-intimidators-c-65_109.html) if you want but the stock ones with the MR-2 w/eyes are ok as well. I just got some Timmy's (hard to get in Canada) and compared them to the ones I got for free from my local shop and can not see any differance.

MR's use Timmy detents. There are different thicknesses of the rubber to choose from as well.

Yes they are the same as the one on my link only stiffer. What kind of loader are you using. If it is not a force feed one then I am not sure you need the extra hard detents but it's up to you.

You can if you want but if you are not having any problems why change them. I used a Q-loader all last season and was fine untill I tried to shoot 20+ bps then had a little trouble with double feed but that was just for fun when I 1st got my Virtue board. I normally run at 15bps and I had no problems.
FYI: Bob Long Intimidator= Timmy's

Thank you for your help.. Im having issues though, my gun is double feeding so thats the reason I wanted to upgrade the stock ones.. And hopefully this will resolve my issue.

Did it just start to double feed or has it been doing it from the start. If it just started chack to see that the tip of your detents has not ripped of. If not get the Timmy's

Its been doing that since I bought it about 5 months ago. The stock one are not rippep, they are fine. But it seems to me that they are made from a cheap flexible material, well atleast mine are. Hopefully those do the Job.

In that case I would get those extra hard one's and you should be fine.

keep the marker from double feeding or the ball from trying to roll out of the barrel
