If you' looking for a quick fix, go to your local hardware store and ask for something that looks similar to a detent.(Bring one along) They might have something that you could cut down to size.

Ok, well the Victor uses the "new (old by today's standards...lol) ball-detent". Older markers like the Sonix and Xtra used (really old) rubber nubs like the Intimidator....

What's wrong with the detent?
Is the housing cracked?
Did the ball fall out?
Is the spring not stiff enough?

You need to help us a bit to help you back, you know?

Well the first one cracked, Threw paintballs out so I threw it away . I got a magnetic one from actionvillage and the actual ball detent just broke and flew out. I made one to last me a couple days. Ill just buy a real cheap one because the cheaper ones seem to last longer.

If you bought the killa detents you probably got a faulty one. I also think they have a lifetime warranty so if it broke without user error then I would look into that.

well, one of my friends had a bko with serious detent issues... even icd couldnt figure out what was wrong with it, so they told my friend to hit it with a hammer. you could try that ;)
