It just a ring of aluminum that drops in the gun between the barrel and the breech. You match it to your paint, then when the ball drops into the breech, it's held in place by the ring. I haven't ever had luck with mine - I shoot them out of my gun all the time. Not sure why...

I always just use the electrical tape detent. Cut about an inch piece off the rule and fold one end into a point. Then take the other end and fold it over the butt end of the barrel. Screw it in and the tape holds the paint in place. Cheap and very effective!

Easiest way to get into pump is a open class cocker setup as it is the closest setup as far as feel to a mech or electro gun, you also don't have to worry about paint and air running out all the time like you would with a stock class gun.

cheapest way to do it would be to find a used mech cocker for dirt cheap and throw on a pump kit then you can use the tank and hopper you have now.

if you want even more of a challenge get a stock class phantom (or copy) and go to stock class but then you can only hold 10-15 rounds and 12 grams will only last about 35-40 shots on a good day....lots to think about while playing but weight and challenge can't be beat.

This is all I do. I have a .688 Ti-stick and just use whatever paint. No paint to barrel matching etc. etc. Drop paint in and shoot it. Tape will do the job!

Teammate uses nail polish. Drop enough in the barrel to make a detent. Once it hardens you're good to go.

I've always wanted to try the nail polish thing, but never got around to it. Do you have to build it up to a sizeable height, or is one drop enough?

I think he builds it up. Just enough to make a visible detent. Probably just 2-3 applications at the most.

Cool! I'm definitly going to do that next time I use it. Is it pretty solid - I mean, does it stand up to the abuse?

i use nail polish to cover scratches on my gun, and unless i use a nail or sharp object, it doesnt even leave a scratch.

I use a little bubble sticker when i close the bolt it pushes the ball to sit on top of the sticker, doesnt dent it or effect it in anyway other then narrowing it enough to hold the ball firmly inplace, doesnt come out with a squegee(SP) or anything works great.
