Cobra has two piece ball detents which you open and clean the ball and the spring.

Jackalope, if you are asking if the two piece cobras go bad I will tell you my experience is they will not. The only thing I guess could go bad would be the spring but because you can take them apart the spring can be replaced easily. I clean mine after every day of play and have had no worries ever. It takes like 30 seconds to pull apart wipe out and relube. Cobra sells them over the phone no prob.

To get more life out of your detent, make sure you're not screwing it in too far. What you want to do is just tighten it with your finger and leave it at that and let the o-ring hold it in place.

The problem is, if the detent is in too far the bolt is going to rub up against the metal casing then cause your ball to push it's way out.

ok well here is the problem i seem to be having and a few of the guys on my team also.

it seem the plastic ball in side the detent becomes worn or something allowing it to be pushed to far out by the spring......then it gets stuck!! and well .....it breaks paint.

maybe we just got some bunk stuff from the shop!
but are all detents on the market for the angel equiped with a plastic ball in them??? i assume it is becuase of the bolt issue.

thanks again for your help!!
