I could be wrong, but I thought palmers mentioned something about this issue in one of the development threads.

Call em and find out.
Thank you for the answer to the question I asked (in the third post) after the thread was started back in December.

Started with a Splatmaster, moved onto a Nelspot 007, then came the Autocockers, then a STERLING Pump, next was a Bob Long defiant then a PM7. As of now I have 10 Sterling Pumps, 2 Phantoms for SC, a CCM SS-25, a PGP and a Sovereign 3.

I have a set of these wedgits. Sold out hours after I got mine. I'm testing on my cocker threaded barrels. They are bendable but springy. After you've bent them though it's not all that easy to keep bending them, they seem to spring more than bend. IMO it would only break off if you keep bending the fins/wedgits, then again I need to keep testing to see how long before any fins break off. I've tested with paint and reballs. Holds paint well so far.

These should work as good as any other ball retention device ever made. The only thing no one will like about them is their disposable nature and their lack of compatibility with a barrel swap.

Otherwise these work perfect. My larger bore closed bolt barrels with wedgits or tape or nail polish to retain paint always tended to seem more accurate than my freaks and race barrels as fancy as those were.

You can also use a piece of cord or string it's just harder to work with and won't provide the symmetrical retention you get with these.

You mean switching out barrels or moving wedgits to other markers. It stays pretty much in one marker, you can remove it and install in another. You can use any barrel as long as the wedgit stays. I've tested it with a freak bored barrel. Not sure If I understood what you meant.

Didn't see anyone else bring it up but I called palmers and asked if these would work with a phantom. I was told they are .15" to large and will buckle when the barrel is tightened. He said it wouldn't be hard to trim it down with a belt sander or a dremel with a sanding attachment but wasn't sure it was worth the time.
