Yes, would have to agree.
BenThePaintballer, can you describe the problem more? Does your paint just roll out of the barrel?

But on that note, knowing what I read that you have done. I would ask, what type of grease do you use?
Also, what area do you play in? It does play a factor.
I live in New York. In the Albany area. Around this time, it gets a little cooler and if I don't have fresh grease on (from the past few days), it acts up. I will get paint rolling out of my barrel or it gets stuck in the barrel. So the bolt is having a bunch of friction. So I clean up the old and make sure each o-ring on the "Bolt slide", I think its called, it's the long black part that the bolt is on. Make sure the o-rings are greased and make sure the rest has a nice fresh coating of grease.
I use the Hattersauce. I works, still haven't found the best type since I think it's a little too thick for winter play. Think this winter, I'll have to get some tri-flow and use one drop to thin it out a bit this winter.
Hope that helps a little bit.
