cocker recocks and puts ball 1/3 down the barrel????????

ok so i am shooting it(it= mini e-oracle with worrblade) tonight jsut to tweak it to perfection.. and well did all that and was curious as to why my velocity was spiking and well found out that when it recocks it puts the ball past the detent cuz the bolt goes past it and the ball is put like 3 to 5 inches into the barrel or sometimes the ball will jsut roll out so i will dry fire the first shot..thus when i do fire the ball is at different positions every shot unless firing fast... is the bolt supposed to push the ball past the detent??? i dont think its supposed to but w/e. what are some reasons for this? or is this normal?

Yes the bolt is supposed to push the ball past the detent. The detent is just there to prevent double feeding. Paint to bore match is critical with cockers to get the best performance out of them as the ball actually sits in the barrel, to big and you have what happened to you where it rolls out and you dry fire the first shot.

Get a barrel kit

edit: barrel size is not the usual reason for paint breaking, your barrel would have to be extreamly small for that to be the cause of breaking paint.

Breaking paint is usualy caused by chopping, or just poor quality paint.

The bolt is suppose to push the ball pass the detent. The detent is there to hold the ball in place when the bolt is in the open position. It sounds like the paint your using is too small of a size for the barrel your using. It's NOT an LPR problem - otherwise you wouldn't even be able to shoot paint thru it!! Try using a small bore size barrel or get a barrel kit with different bore sizes. That way you can match the bore with the paint you're using. Tip #99 - if you point the barrel towards the ground and the ball rolls thru - the paint you're using is a small bore size paint. Switch brands/grades or use a small bore barrel.. Hope this helps
