Yes, I have the brass sleve installed in mine, and will try and make the setup a little tighter. Just dont want paint to come sliding out constantly, you know, and make the issue worse.

(And seeing as I havent ever used the gun in a game.. or ever really.. I didnt knwo about the detent even though i stripped it down completley once)

I ghetto-rigged my 68 breech port...I wrapped electrical tape around the gun over the hole after many chops from paint leaning out the hole. It did the trick.

Azzy, when you have the gun apart, can you take a picture of the bolt? Stock bolt didn't fit in the anti-chop sleeve I had, and the one I trimmed down apparently broke(according to new owner). I'm curious what's in yours.

Edit: B, I sold a 68 special to Rap4paintball with an anti-chop sleeve. PM him, he may be able to get pics and measurements for you. But like I said, the stock bolt doesn't fit it.

If I can find my micrometer, I'll measure it up.

I used to use a good old fashioned rubber band around the breech, works great.

I too have used the rubber band trick. But if Azzy comes through with measurements I'd love to make up something less ghetto.

I'll take the sleeve to work tomorrow and measure it. I am also hoping to make some aluminum bolts that fit into the sleeve, as the amount of material that needed to be removed causes the bolt "arm" the be a little weak, and after a bit of playing, might snap. I'm thinking of making some bolts that the arm attaches onto, and some aluminum linkages.

One key clue Rap forget the AL
liknks there has to be an amout of give in the link other wisw the gun will go auto,skip, or not cycle correctly. been there done that not the right road


Paint is too damn small now for these beasts you can tuen down a barrel but the breach is still to big.


BTW I use a reloaded revi with a vortex impeller on my specals it is the perfict combo i think.

Just wondering if the linkage is made to match the stock linkage, with the "slop slot", wouldn't it still work? I think that putting the gun on safety would be a bit hard, but other than that, I dont think the aluminum would be all that different from the stock plastic part.

One idea I had "back in the day" was to unhook the link rod from the bolt, then attach them together with a rubber band.

So, in the event that a ball does not feed properly, the rubber band would stretch, and pinch instead of chop.

When I tried it, it didn't really work because the link-rod would bounce all over the place. But if the guide on the link was lengthened to keep it travelling straight, and the right rubber band (or spring) was used, it would make for a super simple, practically free, anti-chop device.
