hello i played some paintball with my MR1 yesterday and it chopped like crazy like every 5th ball coming out chopped, i have an electric hopper but everything else is stock, so how do i get it not to chop?

Check your breech and see if all debris is cleared.
If not, make sure your paintballs are in good shape.

What hopper do you have?

i have a q-loader and the detents are fine but as for the FPS i dont know but its the stock spring and it hasnt been broken in yet so maybe thats it i dunno

First of all. A Q-loader isnt electronic. It is spring driven. Secondly, what paint are you using?
Finally... get to a field and find out what FPS your shooting at. The stock spring in MR1's, if untouched out of the box, is really tight and sometimes needs to be cut.
If your balls are breaking, it's either cheap paint, brittle paint from being cold, or your FPS is too hight.

oh sorry its not a Qloader its a quantum viewloader, i use practice vapor paintballs and its like -10 out so that might be it but my friends balls were not chopping

As far as I know, Vapor is ****ty paint. Was your friend using the same thing? Also, your hopper might not be feeding the balls fast enough into the gun, causing them to get chopped as they slide in. Quantums are garbage (Not to bash your hopper... but they work terribly) My suggestion would be to get a EggII.
As far as Paint goes, Try purchasing some X-ball Bronze, Midnight, or maybe Monster balls. They are of higher grade then the Vapor as far as I know.

Yeah lack of forcefed causes markers to chop. Not to mention the paint. ;)

yea i know its horrible paint and a horrible hopper but i plan to get new stuff soon, if i do though will it stop chopping for sure? because i used my friends good paint and if i shot to fast it still chopped

if your hopper feeds faster than youa re shooting then the chops will stop. pleaes remember that you can never truely stop all chopping even markers with eyes chop occasionally.
