Tac 9 problems

Just got a Tac 9 ranger in a trade, but the screws on it seem to have a problem staying tight. I shot about three mags through it tonight before it started chopping, took it apart and the screw holding the trigger group/regulator to the body was VERY loose. I'm assuming that is what was causing my chopping problems, any suggestions for keeping the screws tight? Maybe a little loctite?

And I should mention that I previously took it apart and made sure to tighten the screws.

EDIT: Just talked to my dad and he said some of the non-permanent loctite should do the trick.

There should be a washer (lockwasher, i think) between the bolt and body (manual, page 3 part 14).

That bolt's hole extends into the breech; if the bolt is too long it can interfere with the spring. Maybe that interference could cause it to loosen?

There we go, yep, no lockwasher.

It's fairly common to loose those and not think twice about it. Did that fix your chopping problem?

Not sure, I'll test it out sometime in the morning.

Nope, didn't fix it. It's still chopping them or they are just breaking in the barrel right after it fires. I put almost 3 mags through it again before the problem.

Check your detents. They may be too strong for the paint you're using. If you want, try VERY CAREFULLY to bend them flatter. I recommend needle nosed pliers and lots of patience. Go too fast and you could snap them.

Got them a little bit flatter, but it doesn't seem to be helping. I also turned down my velocity (it seemed to be hot) but that didn't appear to help either. It also can't be a coincidence that it seems to be the last ball in every mag that has been breaking.

EDIT: I'm using the same mag BTW (one with a CA adaptor so I'm not wasting 12ies) is it possible that a problem with the mag would be making this happen?

Check your paintballs too might be old or not very compatible w/Tib Tac 9. I bought some JT paint from walmart and it breaks a lot.

Paint should be good. WPN Toxic less than a month old. It almost must be the barrel that is the problem. I through my Tac 8 barrel onto the Tac 9 and proceeded to shoot 5 mags with no breaks. Not sure what the problem with the barrel could be, but that seems to be it.
