Easiest way to clean an Apex: take it off the barrel and toss it in the trash. Just IMO, though it is true....


For your chronograph question, you really have two options as far as a budget chrono goes. You can get an X-Radar (white) or the Paintball Radar (yellow). Not too much different between them, they both tell you the speed of your marker, which you NEED TO DO EVERY TIME YOU PLAY (sorry, but someone has to say it and be the *******). ActionVillage is great, but they don't always have them in stock. I'll do a little perusing and see if I can find a good store with them in stock and at a decent price for ya.

Its what I have, but the yellow one might be slightly easier to use because with the X-Radar you have to hold down the black button while awkwardly trying to fire your marker.

It's up to you, doesn't really matter.

I beleive ther is a chrono for sale in the BSTs right now for 90ish that would do you just fine. as for the apex on feild I use a battleswab off feild just run warm water through it. cleans if right up. as for the bolt no I dont know another way i just push it out with a battleswab as the only reason I would be doing it on feild is if I had a chop that resaulted in a peice of the shell jamming between the bolt and body, so I would need the swab anyway.

Thanks for the info guys. I think we are going to invest in the X Radar Chrono. I will let you know how everything goes with the velocity/chops. Thanks again.

Hopefully you've solved the problem by now. I have the old MR2 myself, and it chopped all the time (about every 4 balls) until I did some surgery on it. I took the bolt out and clipped some of the acs spring off. I know some people say to not do that, but it made the acs perform Much better. I can put my finger in the breech, fire, and the bolt bounces off my finger all day. I also put timmy detents in, and I'm running a spyder fasta 18v loader. Since I've clipped the acs spring, i've not chopped a single ball. That was a few cases ago. I also run the APEX on the BT AK47 barrel, and it's not that hard to clean. 4 screws, hot water, and you're good to go.

With my gun set up the way it is, I have the range and ROF to be a true annoyance to anyone on the field. Just be careful clipping the acs spring, only take a few millimeters off at a time until it performs the way you want.
