PMI Trracer Ball Detent

My Trracer, like most Trracers, suffers from rollouts. I tried the tape mod, but the tape just ended up getting shot out wth the paintball. I heard of a nail polish detent, any info on that? How far into the barrel do I put nail polish?
Any other detent ideas?

Nail polish worked for me on mine. I put mine right before the threads in the body

Thanks, if it wasn't for you, I would have put nail polish in the barrel.

How about a tiny dab if hot glue? Would that work?

Yes, that should work fine.

Have you tried wrapping the tape around the breech of the barrel so it gets sandwiched when the barrel's screwed in? I never use my Trracer but I do this on my Snipers and it works great.

If you want to prevent rollouts, you'll need it in the barrel. A detent in the breech will prevent double feeds, but not rollouts. Once the bolt is returned forward, the ball sits in the barrel, so anything in the breech will not prevent rollouts.

Thanks guys, I used 2 strips of duct tape put about a 3/4 in deep inside the barrel. works great now. I'll use the other suggestons if this one fails.

You can take a piece of yarn or fairly thick thread and put a bit of sticking into the barrel but hanging out a bit. When you screw the barrel in, the yarn is sandwiched in the threads while the yarn in the barrel keep the balls from rolling out.

i never heard of that one before . seems like a easy fix to a age old problem , and it wouldent shoot out of the barrel like tape would after a few shots

Do you put the tape length wise in the barrel?
