Chopping on a T9, barrel alignment?

Hello,

I have had a Tiberius T9 for some time now and I have noticed I get a lot of chops occasionally then periods where I get none. I'm pretty sure its the paint that is the main culprit but I was wondering is there any way of making a Tibby softer on paint or less prone to chops.

I have heard that the early T9 markers had issues with barrel alignment. When mine goes wrong it tends to double feed. Also did the original first strike bolts cause lots of chops?

Please note this is chops and double feeds with the magazines, not the hopper.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks

Hello Biteweasel,

On the earlier T9 I recommend using marballizer, evil or similar paint.

Yeah I have used MArbs and they shoot fine. Going to try a few things before I give up.

The T9 does not come with a First Strike bolt, unless you added the first strike conversion kit or you have the T9.1.

If you have the T9.1, you can change the rubber detents to see if it helps, but unfortunately on the T9, the dentends are metal and cannot be removed or swapped out.

Incorrect. The detents can be removed.

Weasel, make sure your barrel actually has both detents in place. Secondly, I'd check to make sure they are adequately holding the paint in place. I have always had to tweak my detents by bending the metal slightly so they protrude into the barrel just ever so slightly more. If they aren't holding the paint well enough, the ball can roll forward a bit, allowing a second ball to partially enter the breach and get chopped.

Are you using mag fed or with a hopper? The hopper adapter is notorious for not feeding paint very well unless you have a force-feed hopper. The angle is quite shallow, causing balls to not roll all the way into the breech reliably if you are only using a gravity hopper.

If you are using magazines, look at the detents.

Also, check the hole in the barrel that the balls enter through for any kind of burrs/sharp edges. Use a small file to break these if there are any. Also, check the alignment to the feed ports in the body. The barrel should index securely and lock in place. If it doesn't, the locking groove in the barrel is likely mushroomed/deformed and will probably have to be replaced.
