Check your breech and see if all debris is cleared.

If not, make sure your paintballs are in good shape.

First of all. A Q-loader isnt electronic. It is spring driven. Secondly, what paint are you using?

Finally... get to a field and find out what FPS your shooting at. The stock spring in MR1's, if untouched out of the box, is really tight and sometimes needs to be cut.

If your balls are breaking, it's either cheap paint, brittle paint from being cold, or your FPS is too hight.

As far as I know, Vapor is ****ty paint. Was your friend using the same thing? Also, your hopper might not be feeding the balls fast enough into the gun, causing them to get chopped as they slide in. Quantums are garbage (Not to bash your hopper... but they work terribly) My suggestion would be to get a EggII.

As far as Paint goes, Try purchasing some X-ball Bronze, Midnight, or maybe Monster balls. They are of higher grade then the Vapor as far as I know.

Yeah lack of forcefed causes markers to chop. Not to mention the paint.
