    Right hoping someone can help. Played last month and had a problem with the eyes. Thought it was bolt related as the tip was shredded. Checked all the detents, replaced bolt tip, and looked over the eyes and wires.

    However problem still exists.

    The problem - I can shot 5/6 balls through no problem and then the eyes stop working and thus it won't fire. Doesn't even see the ball in there. However turn the eyes off and it fires fine.

    When testing the eyes will see the ball or a finger in the breach and act as above. 6 balls then not see them even though there is a ball in the breach.

    Anyone any ideas.

    Step 1.
    Check your battery please :) Make sure your screen doesn't flicker when pulling the trigger.
    Step 2.
    Is there any give in your eye covers, have they been bent at all?

    eye covers are perfect with no dirt or rubbish under them. I had previously changed the battery but will try it again just to make sure. The screen does not flicker but i will a new battery new and see what happens

    Replace both your current detents

    Basically what is happening your detents are warn out and not stopping the ball where is should be stopped, Its then rolling forward far enough to be undetected by the eyes.

    That is perfect. I checked the detents and one of them had pulled apart slightly. I'll have to wait for a while to see if it has work but sound advice.

    I haven't had chance to try them out yet. I am playing all next weekend so will provide an update.
    I can however confirm that one of the detents although recently replaced was torn and could have quite easily allowed the ball to roll forward.
    Do paintballs fall out your barrel of you aim at the ground?

    Yes quite easily if you don't bore size your paint.

    Sorry wasn't meaning due to poor bore sizing but more due to damaged detents
