Default very angry un-satisfied MR2 owner.. help?

Ok.. so the gun is inaccurite as hell stock, so I change to a JJ. You have to have a hopper capable of 12+ bps so I get a halo tsa (15bps) and you have to break in the bolt, so I do that as well... wait.. I paid $250 for a gun that requires all this right out of the box?! yeah..too bad even after all that it still chops paint as if thats what it was designed to do. I broke in the "ACS" bolt for 5 hours. Well over 1000 times. Bore matched the paint, shot several kinds of paint. Still this gun dissapoints me. 3 out of 5 matches I got out cause of gun failure. One of the two I didnt i was usuing a borrowed A5. The gun gets cleaned eery night its fired and oiled right after. Just as the manual says. I'm calling false advertisement on the "ACS". Especially sence the manual says nothing about a break in period. And even after the break in it still chops badly. If you are a kingman rep reading this, I want my money back.

The tsa might not be feeding fast enough because the blowback up the feedneck slows the feed rate down, or the acs might be defective or just not broken in well enough yet. What kind of paint were you using? It might just be cheap paint. Good Luck with your problem.

haha buddy dont tell me ACS bolts dont work, i shot a case of paint through a spyder imagine with ACS and i was using a GRAVITY FEED hopper. and i got NO BREAKS, WHAT-SO-EVER ya and also the trigger bounced pretty bad, so it was basically shooting its max ROF (14 bps) the WHOLE TIME.

so ya ACS bolts do work.

its something your not doing right, your ACS may be defective, idk.

i still think it is honestly the ball detent, because those little black nipple things are absolutely WORTHLESS. maybe see if you could mod the body to use normal spyder detents?? i really dont know.

could be a number of things
--cheap paint
--the temperature you used it in
Are tsa's any good?
How did you break in the bolt?
I wouldn't really expect much from that marker in the first place.

You are kidding right? All stock barrels suck, until you get to high end guns that come with ultralites etc. Its just how it is. Also, a hopper is just a necessity. Complaining about having to buy a hopper is like complaining that you have to buy bindings when you buy a pair of skis. Almost every single gun requires some kind of break in period too. Whether it be regs on a high end gun, slightly incorrect tolerances, orings, or an ACS bolt, most guns need to be broken in, even (or actually more so) when you are paying 1000+ for a gun.

I think you need to calm down and talk rationally about this problem instead of jumping to conclusions.

Also what pressure are you running at and what velocity are you running at, if you have both cranked you will shoot inaccurate and chop lots.

I'd recommend calling the reps at Kingman (they're very helpful!) and possibly sending it in. It's like anything else. Maybe you just got the lemon in the bunch! Try fixing it before you give up on it. Who knows? May be something very simple to fix after all....

when ur co2 spikes it causes the psi (pounds per square inche) to increase to such a level that causes "too much pressure" and causes the ball to litterally explode out of the barrel. so yes u need to chill and start looking at things and trying to figure them out rationally. keep asking questions but dont complain about things that can easily be solved.
