Just got a PTP Blue Nights micromag. The ball detent seems to stick open a bit and double feed. Should it have a return spring or something?

There should be a spring under the back end of the detent. You would have to knock the pin out to see it.

Yeah my micromag double feeds too. I've tried a new detent straight from PTP, but it still double feeds. What should I try to stop it from double feeding?

You can sand the "bottom" edge of the part that doesn't go into the barrel, so the part the goes into the barrel goes farther into the barrel. You'll wear it out faster, but it will help with doublefeeds.

I've given up on stopping doublefeeds with small paint on mine. I bought a python kit, and haven't had any problems since. I think part of the trouble is that the stock barrels are relatively large bore. The python kit takes care of that issue completely. Best $50 or so bucks I've spent on paintball gear.

Sand the sides of the detent down slightly. I had a Sleeper cocker at one point that did this, and discovered it was because the fit between the slot in the body and the actual detent was too tight and would bind quite often.
