To be honest.. The AC adapter.. I will be calling Tippmann about it.. I don't like it at all. The 3 different AC barrels I tried didn't sit flush to the back of the adapter leaving a gap.. Other then that.. The marker is amazing and the adapter can be fixed.

Answer depends on how much liquor the bunkhouse stocked the night before

I notice in some pics of Tippman effect that some of them have macro line on their guns. Can a in-line Reg be added to these and how does that affect the ASA?

I am not a fan of the adapter at all, but what kind of paint was it?

I had the same problem last year and again just recently. The first time I sent my marker into Tippmann.
Then when it started happening again I thought son of a *****. I had to use a rental to keep playing, after a few rounds of having to shake the hopper every two seconds for it to feed I thought, hey I'll just put my Halo Too on there and it should be fine. As soon as I started firing the same thing happened. Apparently the winter paint that we were using was extremely fragile and my Halo was breaking the paint before it was getting into the breach. I thought the marker was chopping the balls, but it was the hopper blending them before the even went onto the marker. After borrowing a Rotor from someone the problem was almost completely gone, the paint was so fragile that even dumping them into the hopper broke some.
So check to see if your loader was forcing the paint to hard and breaking it before it gets to the marker.

Just had this problem two weeks ago. Pretty much ruined my weekend.
