Default Electra DX - a chopper...

Hi folks,

first of all, cheers from Germany!
I've some problems with my Electra DX, this gun is chopping nearly every firing round. It's tuned with an other spring and I'm using a Evolution II hopper.
Can someone give me some hints to avoid so many ball breaks?

I'm new to paintball, so help is highly appreciated!

(please excuse my english!)

Cheers,
Michael

you aren't getting trigger bounce are you? (the recoil of the the gun makes the gun fire again, often too fast for the hopper)

Since you're German, I can attempt to speak in your native tongue. (translation below in English)

Welchen Frühling verwenden Sie? Wie ist Ihre Geschwindigkeit daran?

Der Schlüssel zu sich zurückhaltenden Bällen vom Brechen ist eine dreistimmige Lösung. Zuerst verwenden Sie Qualitätsfarbe. Zweitens verwenden Sie die richtige Geschwindigkeit und blasen direkt durch die Bälle nicht. Drittens müssen Sie ein gutes Qualitätsbarrel verwenden, das nicht kleiner ist als die Bälle, die Sie schießen.

What kind of spring are you using? What is your velocity at?

The key to keeping balls from breaking is a three-part solution. First, you use quality paint. Second, you use the proper velocity and don't blow right through the balls. Thirdly, you have to use a good quality barrel that is not smaller than the balls you are shooting.

Hi folks,

think I got the point, the problem was too high pressure on my hammer spring. Just decreased it and it solved the prob! Now, everything's fine, just waiting for my 14'' SP Progressive Barrel. Hope it will be spot on....

Thank you guys!
