Here's an update:

Sat down at the chrono with some fresh paint. I backed the IVG out to flush and began backing out the reg screw until it began to leak down the barrel. I screwed it back in until the leak went away. At this point, it was shooting 250-270 fps. I then began to adjust the IVG by screwing it in just far enough to put the back cap on, and it began leaking down the barrel again. I turned the reg screw up to almost flush to get rid of the leak, and the gun was shooting up at 315-325.

I have definitively proven that the chopping is actually pressure moving up from the breach into the ball stack, basically shooting a ball into the hopper.

I am at school and will not be able to test/tinker with my gun for two more weeks. At this point, I think I would rather send it to an expert than continue to tinker with it myself. Any ideas?

This was happening to me, turns out it was my plastic set screw in the lug/hammer. It was slightly worn and need to be screwed in just a pinch to give it more resistance or it would move a little and mess up my timing.....messed up timing = shredded paint

What was the outcome of this?

I was breaking paint all day today. I thought it was the paint but this situation seems similar.

I think it is your detent....

Sounds like your detent is missing. Instead of the paint stopping at the detent, it is rolling down the breach up to or into your barrel, then a second paintball is going into the breach or halfway into the breach and getting cut or mashing the first paintball, causing it to break.

It is easy to check, take out the bolt and look down the breach, you should see a detent on the bottom, just ahead of the feed-tube. If it is missing, you know your problem.

Call Mel, have your serial number ready, she will need it to get you the right detent. If you have an older marker, it is a Spyder type, newer it uses an o-ring. To make the repair you will need the right detent, some blue Loctite and the correct size Torx screwdriver (also available from Mel) and 15 minutes.

Good luck!

Good chance it's there, but worn out... It's easy enough to change and cheap enough too.

I'm pretty sure it was the paint that I had. Same type was breaking with my S6 about a month ago.

With a different kind of paint in the yard, I had no breaks before today. I wasn't chopping because there was no shell in the breech or on the bolt. I just had barrel breaks.

I was just wondering what his outcome was in case I got out tomorrow and use paint #2 and it does break.
