Angry My electra 05 Hates paint.

I've had my electra 05 for about 2 weeks now When I got the gun I had no money left over for a Halo b hopper or one that could feed enough balls to the gun..So I dnt play on the field with it yet..But I went out in my back yard with a non electric hopper and it was chopping balls left and rite..paint spraying all over Im using Co2 wich should not be a prob..So then I got mad and brought the gun to a friends house he put his halo b on it and Put some empire paint in the hopper it workd fine then I go And do it and it breaks balls that time I was using draxxux paint n the halo b..Why is this gun breaking balls? what should I do? Oh yeah and the paint flys all over like its lost when it comes out the gun..

there's a spring inside the antichop bolt. It's stiff from the manufacturer. Stuff the rag in the feedneck so the bolt collides with it to break in that spring. run a whole 9 oz through it..that should do it
