Depends on what gun, phantoms u can get the detent rings, removable barrel guns you can get barrel kits or pps wedgits, i dunno about unibody, guess you just get bigger paint. btw detents can work in pumps, just not closed bolt pumps! (hahahaha splatmaster, just about the only exception.)

I'm just wondering, how much DO detents affect accurracy? if they didn't do any harm, why don't they just put detents on every gun?

I used one of those little arts and craft little paintbrushes that you can pick up at craft stores/walmart/dollars stores and such. Think they are about 4 or 5 inches long, long enough to do a PPS marker or sheridian...
Ah - that explains it. I was trying to imagine doing it with the brush attached to the cap on the nail-polish bottle...

Yeah, the stuff we get up in Canada has usually been in transit a while and sits on the floor in the pro shop, neglected because of its lack of AGG appeal next to the stacks of Karnage.

It's usually just right once I've got DIY electrical tape "detents" in place.

I've never actually tried the nail polish trick, but a fellow local closed-bolt pump player tells me it shoots out pretty quickly.

They generally do, it's just that closed-bolt design pushes the ball past the detents as part of the cocking process. That's when rollout happens unless the barrel is just tight enough to hold the ball in place till the trigger's pulled.

On that note, how the hell do cockers stay popular if they have this same problem?

Having different I.D. barrel sizes. Barrel kits. Sized inserts. Etc.
Use correct size barrel.

Why does "Big Bores and Small Paint" always make me giggle and think of a hot dog down a hallway or a BB in a boxcar?
Ahh college.
This thread needed silliness.

It's ok listessa.... you can go back and sit in the corner again

Another trick.. this one provided by S7G.... get a piece of yarn and get that into the barrel right in front of the bolt..... you play around and see if you can figure out the rest What did you think I was going to just up and give away that 20 something year old secret?
