My Brand new Karni at the shop :(

A little background about myself. I used to play Pball back in the days. I had one of the first 3 Sandridge/Force 5 cockers that Rich from Sandridge Paintball was testing out. I was extremely pleased with them. I ended up giving up paintball completely.

My little brother has followed my footsteps and started to play paintball, I now race/track days on a motorcycle when I have time.

I ended up buying a Brand New Karni from Doropaintball and took it to the field on Sat to play with it. Bad news didn't work. When I got it, the shot counter for some odd reason read 481 shots. I gassed it up to shoot it and for some odd reason it was double feeding, so I ended up rented a gun at the field. After the day was over I took it to PEV'S for them to take a look at it and fix the problem with the gun. One of the guys was dry shooting it with air and the Ball detent flew out of the gun.

I'll just have to wait and see how much I am going to get charged in labor and in parts to get my karni up and running.

Just a couple questions to those who have Karni's.

What settings do you have on yours? Timing? etc...

Feel free to pm me if you have a chance.

i do not know what the warrenty is like for karnivor from wgp right now. could u call wgp and have them service the marker since it is new? i think it would just be the cost of shipping. it is a new marker.

good luck with your marker

That is correct. It is a brand new marker. I did not find any warranty card for the Marker itself but found one only for the frame from Planet Eclipse. Hope it doesn't take to long to get it fixed at Pev's.

Sounds like the detent is your only problem. New detent, ~ $25.

either your detent was screwing up your shot counter or you have a busted frame. I bet the detent was the problem. Good luck man.

Detent needed replacing. The shot counter is really no big deal. All guns are shot before they leave the factory. Also, the shot counter also counts noid clicks so anyone that just clicks the noid a bit is putting shots on the counter. It's really no big deal.

A detent can not affect the shot counter, the frame reading shots could be from some one playing with it before it was sold.

(dry fireing with battery in and or just checking out the gun,settings, and seeing how fast they could pull the trigger)

Guess it's time to get Kila detents , it also seems that air wasn't getting enough air. I mean even if there are 2 balls in the breech and if I fire it should of chopped the paint, but it didn't even do that at all, it just kept on adding paintballs and paintballs into the barrel, it just hurts having a new gun not working lol.
