I was using pmi premium paint and it had a PERFECT bore match and from what i hear that is pretty good paint, i got it for $40 a case. ok to the bad part, about ever 5 shots i had a freakin barrel break. it made me so freakin mad i wanted to sell my gun to sum1 on the spot but i decided not to because i really want this gun to work out. Could you guys help me out?

The same thing happened to me once, shooting both my phantom and my imagine. I couldn't make sense of it. Meanwhile both guns shot xball perfectly, and my friends A-5 shot the pmi fine aswell. In any case, I didn't like Prems a ton before, but now I'm not buying em again.

In other words, try some different paint and see what the outcome is. Also if you haven't already, put a few drops of oil, or spread a bit of dow33 on the o-rings of the bolt.

One theory is that, because the match was perfect, if you got a ball that a was a little on the large side, it could get squeezed to death in the barrel?

Yeah, I would try some different paint or go up one size in your bore choice. If they are breaking in your barrel I would be concerned with inconsistent paint size or the possibility that your bore choice was a bit too tight for that paint. Also, you are not running hot are you?

Why didn't you try the stock barrel if you were having barrel breaks? Sounds like a paint concern. If you were playing in the cold and using C02 that would have an affect. Even though you use good paint, batches can be bad or if it was sitting in the store for a while(this is winter) paint can become bad. Try something different -

The cold will contract objects. It prolly made the bore of the barrel stightly smaller. Who knows? It also makes paint shells more brittle and easier to break -
