Default Barrel breaks n' double shooting?

What's up everyone...I went out 2 play yesterday and I was breaking balls in the barrel and ocassionally 2 balls would shoot out of the marker at the same time with 1 trigger pull. It was the first time I played with my new barrel (j&j ceramic) which seemed 2 clean out nicely. It was also the first time I used the FASTA hopper and it worked awesome! Since I had 2 purchase their paint I opted for Evil paint which is supposed 2 be premium. I usually use Toxic or Elixer which I love. Could my problems have come from the paint I used or the new barrel??? Any advice is appreciated

it might be just the double feeding, mr2s have a problem with this, but it can be easily fixed by buying some bob long detents, i bought mine for a dollar, and i haven't double fed yet

glad to hear the fasta worked out good cause my eggy didnt work to good today, so i sat and cleaned out my gun half the time

good detents will do wonders in this gun. if you have not done so yet you should also break in your acs bolt.

Hey thanks 4 tha help...I have read many of the threads 4 weeks now and have learned a lot. I do have the stock black detents which i've read might be fine. I've heard "timmy's" are good, and now your recommending Bob long detents. Outta the box about 6months ago I had the normal chops and breaks people go thru. I thought I was passed that stage....so yeah the bolt is def broken in. Im gonna go back 2 my old paint and research the bob detents. Any other thoughts are welcome

Yeah - That should take care of your prob bro'. I just played this last weekend and had a blast..... until I sheared the timmy detent and was slinging like 4-5-or 6 Pb's with ONE trigger pull!!! I knew what was wrong though. I am using a Halo B Hopper (with V35 Board) and haven't really had any problems with chopping anymore.

On a second note.... How do you like your new J&J barrel? I have been eyeballing that brand but I just don't know if it is necessary.... I only like to upgrade parts on my gun if I can get a performance increase ya know - otherwise it "useless". I have been thinking about the 14" J&J barrel and an Alamo City bolt to try and increase accuracy... I would also have to add some HPA in there as well. I guess I'm just not "sold" on it yet!

Well, I ordered some Bob Long detents and they should arrive within the next few days. That should do the trick.

Im with you, I only really like 2 get performance parts, not so much 4 the asthetics. I have 2 say that I went with the j&j 14" cuz of other threads that I read. Everyone was absolutely right!!! It kicks ass!! Since I was breaking balls cuz of my stock detents, I hope...I got 2 see the barrel in action. I would shoot about 5 rounds and the barrel would clean itself out nicely. Def an improvement over the stock barrel as far as accuracy. It's a tiny bit thinner than the stock barrel which works good with the paint that I use. I believe you have 2 look 4 paint that works best with the barrel in my opinion. I hated Evil, but really like elixer and toxic. I think elixer is the best paint i've used so far with the J&J. I also like using a 20 oz Co2 becuase it last so long!! The weight is an issue though. Go with the 14" J&J ceramic barrel. I found it new on ebay shipped 2 my doorstep for $35.

I have 2 tell everyone again how great the FASTA hopper works with the MR2. Shipped new 2 my doorstep $85 on ebay. save yourself the cash from getting a Halo. 230 rounds is awesome capacity, especially while using auto mode.

I would like 2 hear comments about the Alamo City bolt as well??

another positive on the jj ceramic is that it is much quieter than the stock barrel. (at least mine is, i dont know about other people though)
