In this model, the whole mechanism is protected in the central box which allows to open completely
I must still make test with first strike.
But I think it will work because the printing defects are not perpendicular to the trajectory of the ball.
The ball path is printed in a spiral shape.
And later, if needed, I'll probably use a chemical process to smooth surfaces

I should just buy a hundred first strike

I use the same spring on all the models (30 rounds, 40 rounds, and the future 50 & 80).
The spring tension is adjustable internally.

Is opening the entire device the only way to reload it?

I'm totally ok with having to open it up to load it. I'd rather it take a few extra minutes for me to load 40+ First Strikes so maybe it will help remind me that I'm shooting too much!

The chemical process or perhaps just a light sanding is a good idea. I think that will help smooth out any defects in the 3D printing process. However the fact that the spring is adjustable means it will be probably be ok. The main thing I've found is that FS really need that extra spring pressure when loaded into the breach so they don't have the time to flip and the pressure helps hold them in the breach properly.

If I drop the magazine because of a chop, will the mag stop feeding or will all of the rounds come flying out? Is there a round holding mechanism in place? I couldn't tell in the video.

It may be marker dependent, but I suspect that the chops I've been having are due to too much spring tension. Apparently, shotgun springs with 2+ lbs of force are excessive.

But what about regular, round paintballs?

Can they be loaded without disassembling the drum?

the charger is made ​​of ABS. the most effective method of smoothing is to use acetone steam .
For PLA it's butanone steam .

Yes, the mag stop feeding, only the balls engaged will fall

Yes , by the mag head. you just pay attention to the position of internal lever.
there's arround 15 balls before lever and 25 after
As said scottallen1986 , there is a round holding mechanism in place when u load it.
You must introduce a dozen balls, pass the lever and put the other 25 balls.
(on the next one , I'll add a small window to see the position of the lever)
