mine hasnt chopped ever since the first 200 shots iv put through it. it takes about 400 shots for my acs to break in. after that the spring is set and ready no eyes needed, TRUST ME. i used like 1000 box of wild streak and it still hasnt chopped once. eyes are a nono unless u want to feel safer, just in case. it may chop with the stock barrel tho cause after i switched to my j&j ceramic it completely stopped chopping.

I have had my 05 Electra for almost 1 year now and I have put about 12000 balls through it, all stock, I haven't chopped a ball yet. I have a Halo B with the Victory board. I started with CO2 and I am now using HPA(because I have free access to HPA). I never went through any process of breaking in the ACS bolt, although I have read a lot about it and it seems like a good idea. I typically use the full auto mode between 13-10 bps depending on my mood. I occasionally use it in semi mode at faster rates as well. I have used several different types of balls mostly Draxus and XBall.

Hope this helps.

Halo B

Also check your detents. If a ball is being pushed past the detent (Halo B is a force feed) then you will also chop as a second ball will drop part way into the breech. You can look into Kila magnetic detents for your marker, that should help if it is the detents.

When I first got it it did chop a few balls, however after about 1000 balls or so its now solid. I did get a new Halo B for it and chaged the feed neck to the shocktech as the orginal feed neck just crap.
