Hmm, my favorite question, is it cold out? Stock bolt I presume?

If its cold, well spyders don't like cold, you could try oiling up your bolt o-rings...

And, how fast are you shooting?

I guess it could be your ball detent... thats the thing thats supposed to keep the marker from loading more than one ball at a time. I suppose you could try replacing it? It couldn't cost more than couple bucks.

The detent wouldnt be doing it...only one ball will be in the breach while the other sits on top. It would most likely be the paint or bolt. The stock Imagine bolt sucks madly. If I was you i'd get an ACS Delrin Bolt. It reduces chops greatly. Or, it could be the pressure your working at. If you havent move the velocity adjuster, that should be fine. Or it could be your paint. If your balls havent been wet it could be the paint to barrel match. Welcome to the forums.

my spyder magine was giving me crazy problems too an it was my ball detent even though i thought no wy and now it works with stock bolt and wal mart paint

yea check your detents, if they still spring in and out, then you are good. also what brand of paint were you using?? another factor is check to see how well the paint matches the barrel. it should just fit a LITTLE tightly and you should have to BARELY blow and the ball should come out. if its too big and wont go threw, then thats probably why you are breaking paint.
