View Full Version : problem, need help!

I just got me an mr2, liking it w/ no problems with the notorious "chopping" issues. But i'm having this problem where if I use auto and just spray paintballs all over, I am forced to cock it again in a middle of shooting. As if it looses its grip and suddenly no paintballs are coming out, only the electronic trigger clicking. And resulting into cocking the damn thing again. I could probably have 5-10 decent shots (in auto) and suddenly, forced to cock it again. Any ideas?

What kind of hopper are you using? Did you break the acs bolt in?

Straight from the box it has been doing it. I checked the ACS and it looks ok.

Did you break in the ACS bolt??? Looks has nothing to do with it. There actually is a break in process that you should do before playing in order to break the ACS spring in. It's not in you manual but it's very easy to do. Your spring may just be to strong. What kind of paint are you using and how old is it? Have you changed the ball detent?

Well I have the same problem with my MR2.. It's because the ACS I think. Because the ACS catches the ball before it's in the breach. And then you have to recock it because it did'nt get blowback.. If you try to stick your finger down when you shoot on full auto the same thing will happen you have to recock it. It's the ACS that stops it from chopping..

Gothcha! " Break in" period you mean. I've only been shooting it 3x now and shot @ 1500 balls in it. So you think I should keep shooting to break it in still? I am using Draxxus midnight and yes they are new. Is it normal for Spyders to have a "break in" period? Is there any adjustment for me to do on the spring?

Yes, i changed the detent.

Actually, you don't use paint to break the acs in. Take something like a cloth swab, pencil or wooden dowel and stick it in the feed neck of the gun all the way into the chamber. Then fire at least 500 times. If your bored you could take the bolt out and work the spring back and forth about the same amount of times. The point of both of these processes is to work the acs spring not the striker spring.

At last! Got it to work these past couple of days. The solution turned out to be a faster hopper. I sent it back to the paintball store for the mechanic to check and right off the bat, he suggests a faster hopper, force fed. I got the evoultion and immediately test fired it. I did 2000 paintballs in auto w/ out any breaks and re-cocking issues. He said that the gun is too fast for slower hoppers.

What kind of hopper did you end up with? I'm having the same problem.
