Thumbs up different detents

hey guys i tried putting in piranha detents and they work great no more chopping and they are big enough that a halo will not push the balls past them. this might be better than taking one detent out.

hm, I used Timmies, and had to take one out. Lol I remember getting to the field, and I shot a few times. Well by the time I figured out what was wrong, I had about 11 balls in my barrel

That would make sense. The Piranha detents are softer than the stock and Timmy ones. Good possible solution for those having problems.

thanks jj.

I bought detents from there and I just got them in the mail today.
I had to cut part of it though since the base didn't fit into the groove in the gun body. It seems to work great and with my egg, i shot like 50 rounds and didn't have any chops.

i'll give a full update after the next time i use it in a day of paintball.

the base is too big, but with a little trimming with sharp scissors and you can't ask for better detents.

I just shot about 100 rounds through it with my egg2 w/ zboard, and not a single chop. We'll see how it works on the field. It's nice to have two detents vs. only one weak one. I'll test it with my halo b w/ victory board sometime later this week.

So far i'd recommend these detents, they just require a little bit of cutting.

Here's an old picture I made. Keep in mind that these are old-style Wrath detents. I need to get my hands on some of the new ones and update the picture.


Newer pic showing the new detents:

^ The Inflicted, I've quoted you 3 times for your micro jumper picture already haha. Keep up with the excellent pics!

I tested the detents again, and they seem to work great. No chops. Thanks again Madman for the great idea!

Yeah I have been working on that as well, the only problem with low temp is it tends to become sticky in bomby weather, I currently have some sheets of this metal thats found in eletrical transformers, 75 percet silicone , but 25 percent aluminum I bealive. Odd stuff , but It has amazgin flexability , I don't have a furnace so it refuzes to melt .

Up north we have a hard time finding Wrath parts so i"ve been using these Piranha detents with Halo and egg for over a year now. Wrath detents lasted 1 game. I still replace, but not too bad.

guys it think i have figured it out. i am using a special rubber-like material from work. but i am putting a piece of string down the center of the detent to help with durability. going to try out this weekend. time for the test trials. will give report on findings. going to use reballs so that i can give it a hard trail.
