hi all.

i just recently purchased a freshly refurb'd mr1. added a j&j 14" barrel, tacama hopper, 20oz co2 tank.

i was noticing that when i was practice shooting, every so often i would shoot 2 or 3 balls at one time, then go back to shooting single shots. obvisouly the multiple shots dont go as far as single shots.

i was using 1+ year old crappy walmart balls to test...would that make the gun do this?

everything else seems good to go on it. cocks fine, no leaks, body is in perfect condition, etc. only problem im having is multiple balls.

thanks for your help!

Check your ball detent. Since it happens here & there i would put more of the blame on the paint.

If it is still there....

My friend had the same problem, and it turned out to be a missing detent = )

Lol! Yeah make sure the little nipple part is still there. Or even see if you got a new detent. The old ones are red and new, better, ones are black.

1.) Cock the marker.
2.) Take off the barrel or feedneck (feedneck's better).
3.) Stick your finger in the breech and feel for a thing sticking out.

IF you do not feel anything, PROCEED to 4.
IF you feel something sticking out, PROCEED to last paragraph.

4.) Take off the detent cover.
5.) Check to see if detent is there.
6.) If detent is not there, call local paintball shop and ask for a replacement detent for an Intimidator (Timmy).
7.) Replace or install new detent.

If you have a detent, and it's double feeding, try turning the detent 180*. Sometimes they wear down and bend to where they aren't very effective.

That was for the VS series. You cannot do that with the MR1.

You could just get them from here (http://cgi.ebay.com/6-Timmy-Intimidator-Rubber-Ball-Detent-SOFT-MED-HARD_W0QQitemZ260110209137QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_De faultDomain_0?hash=item3c8fc6d071#ht_1358wt_939) if you like.
I would recommend the hard one (red) cause the MR1 is a mech marker.

thanks a ton!!

my buddy found a website that sells the factory replacements, i ordered 3 to be on the safe side. i'll order this set as well. for the price there's no reason not to!

i had a screw-strippage issue when trying to get the feed neck off, but thats settled now, and replaced all 3 with stainless steel phillips head screws.

is there any mod to make sure to keep the detent in? i cant really tell, but it seems to me maybe some kind of "anchor" could be made to keep the detent from jumping out into the barrel?

Um if you look where the detent goes you'll see that the space or the inset circle in the marker. The little hole is only for the nipple part of the detent so it's not really going to fall through. The only thing that can happen is that, the little nipple part get sheared off because the bolt slides over it. So the problem with the earlier detents was the they get sheared off (most likely your problem) and then there's now way to really regulate the paint flow into your gun.
