Down the barrel, on the bolt, up the feed neck, so bad my eyes wont self clean. id strip it all down clean it and it happens again. my velocity is only around 260. i thought it might be the paint but i put the same hopper paint and barrel on my ego shotting at 290 and i can shoot thru a whole hopper on ramp not a single problem. ive never had this problem with a DM before. can someone please help.
i figured out the issues with the paint chopping in the dye dam. what you need to check is first the eye pipe inside you have to make sure its properly seated and angled inside and that complete rotates all the way around. if it isnt properly angled it cause a gap when you switch the selector for the paint it will get pinched inside and cause paint to chop inside.i found that when i pushed it a lil bit more to left go inward it helped with the gap issue. also another thing i found on my dam after i bought it, it had been sitting on configuration mode ( i never touched the board when i bought) so check and see if the board sitting on config. after i did all this my dam shoots like a monster never chopped paint ever again.
