Is the gun really hard on paint? whats a good paint to use with this gun? I just wanted to test it out and had cheap paint and it was breaking paint like crazy, like 2 out of every 10 shots would shot right..

I was having the same issue with mine. I ended up smoothing out the hook in the cyclone of sharp edges and smoothed up some of the milling on the face of the bolt. This seemed to solve most of the problems I was having. Plenty of information online of what to do. I have heard some saying the ball detent was too stiff and causing some of the breaks as well.

All of my breaks were found to be mid to end of barrel breaks even when using my widest barrel bore so I figured it was the bolt doing most of the damage. After doing this I would only get occasional barrel breaks using somewhat brittle paint.

Now I have one of the TechT MRT bolts installed, only had one break so far.
