Since this is my thread I felt obliged to investigate.

I went to my basement and dug up a new old stock set of fingers that were never installed, just cracked. There does seem to be a difference in the fingers themselves.

However, when I played Sunday I didn't have problems feeding paint that was .689. I had gun problems but they were unrelated to feeding.

It looks like this could be fixed with a decent X-acto knife if it became a problem.

this is what I had to do to get the ball to drop into the breach. other wise only 3/4 of the ball falls into the breach.

Although in testing, most times the ball was pushed into the barrel by the bolt, there is always the chance of that one ball breaking.
this is an unmodified detent.

Capital, did you let PTP know? It sounds like they are manufacturing these themselves and could adjust the measurements appropriately.

The size was adjusted to accomodate for small paint. There was a big lapse in time between proto-typing and actual production and these changes were made based on results from tens of thousands of rounds shot through more than a dozen VMs. If anyone has actual problems during use please let us know. So far there have been no issues with the production parts that have gone out.

Actually, that's kinda nice...I'm glad I ordered 2. I'll mod one for larger paint and keep one stock for smaller paint. (c:
