Stingray Detent

Hello, all fellow Brass Eagle owners! Im in the process of modding a Stingray fairly extensively, but Id like to replace the detent. Ive looked for the acrylic detent through google, but have yet to find a place that sells them. I saw on the old BEOG that there was a mention of perhaps using cocker detents. Does anyone have a solution suggestion? Thanks for any help in advance.

There never was a commerical acrylic detent. We always used a bead (like from a bead shop ) of the same diameter. Works great!

I went to a JoAnn Fabrics and found what I thought was the same diameter bead, but it was just a little bit smaller. It always ended up popping out. Is there any way that I can get that bead surface built up a little bit so that it doesnt pop out? I was thinking about using some two part epoxy or even hot glue to build it up a bit. Suggestions?

The actual size is 3/8", though 9mm or 10mm will work as well (3/8" is equal to 9.525mm). I seem to remember using 10mm beads mostly. They'll sit a little lower in the breach.

Crimson: You probably grabbed an 8mm, try the bigger sizes.

Yep 10mm pearls from craft store are the ones. If I'm correct, sting is still up. I'll check my rayparts and see what extras I have. I actually had one that had intelli feed
