I have my doubts, it sounds like the bolt. Especially considering almost everyone that comes on here with an ACS bolt has to break it in. Stick a barrel swab down the feedneck and dry fire a whole tank of air to break the spring in. 1000-1500 shots should be enough. Then try it.

Are the rubber detents Kingman uses timmy detents like in Piranhas? The spyders I've seen have had the metal ball detents so I'm not sure. If so try some soft timmy detents (black).

These detents are a silicone type material, look alot like a pencil point, and have a flat backing that are of the same material, only to large to fit into the detent hole in the marker...so that only the pointy rubbery extremely flexable part is in the chamber. Looks very cheap, and hurried...not at all what im used to from Kingman

"DETENT - Integrated under the angled feed port's braces. Not a standard Kingman left-side ball-bearing." http://www.pbreview.com/products/reviews/4226/

Nope...they are thin and come to a point, like a pencil lead. Orange in color. All the posts that claim they are breaking paint are correct....and in my case, I was using xball bronze, fresh paint, not under or over sized paint, four different brand electronic hoppers, and two different MR2 markers. Its a crappy detent, and its allowing paint to double feed. The marker is a good one, other than this detent issue. If Kingman addresses this fairly quickly, it will be a highly sought after marker. If they continue to blame it on paint, loaders, ignorance from the user (such is the case of the reply to my EMAIL from Kingman) ...its going to get a bad reputation in short order

Did you try another detent? If they are the same diameter on the base you could try a timmy detent, or mod one to fit at least until Kingman fixes them. Can you take a picture of this detent?
