Default MR2 Paint Chopper

Maybe someone can help a friend and I both bought MR2's and we have tried every kind of paintball made and cannot get these guns to quit chopping paint. Does anyone have any constructive ideas?

The exact reason I sold my MR2. It's NOT the ACS. Trust me mine was broken in the same way that my pilot's ACS was broken in and the pilot never chops. Using the same Halo TSA on the Pilot as I did the MR2. Something else on the gun is defective. Alot of guys were blaming the cheap rubber ball detent. As for myself I wasn't willing to wait til the problem was re-called.

I have a Halo B on it and it is just terrible at chopping paint. We tried again this weekend and we spent all of are time cleaning the darn guns. Something is wrong with these guns. I have a ion and have no trouble comared to this thing.

HALO's are notorious for pushing balls past the detents of various types of markers. If you know someone w/an Egg, try that and see what results occur. Personally I would call Kingman(1-888-kingman) ask for a tech and see what he would suggest. I'm thinking they're going to need to make a change with the detents on these markers. Remember, they are on the west coast WPT so call during their regular working hours there not where you're at if you are like on the east coast -

Well for those that havn't seen one, the detent on the MR2 is a little piece of rubber about the size of the head of an ink pin. Its just a lil chunk of weak rubber. Almost felt as if it were made of silicon. Unlike the rubber/ball bearing detents of any other spyder. I think the shear weight of the ball falling down the feed neck is enough to push past it. If you know someone that has one or if you have one and havnt seen it yet, remove the 3 allen screws from the feedneck plate and remove the plate, underneath it you will find the detent. Itys an orange-ish red color. Then you will see what I mean.
