My speed is a blender. Help!!!!!!!!!!1

I have been chopping with my speed now for about four months. I get at least one chop out of a hopper full. I have a halo with the z-code(I've also tried a revy), a nw lowrise. I have my lpr set a 50 psi and dwell at 17 like ken suggested. On sensi mode 2 or off I will chop bad. Sensi mode 1 I will chop less. I calibrate the sensi everytime I turn it on and the rod is clean and it passes the test everytime. My ram is adjusted as far forward that it can go with the breach still being able to open. My detents look ok, I guess(It's my first angel, so I think they look good).

When I say chop, I mean paint on the bolt, paint ozing out the breach, paint up in the feed all the way up to the bottom of the halo, and paint all down the barrel.

I'm not sure if it is the paint or not, but it has been happening all summer long with different paint so I don't beleive it is the paint.

Is the a4 bolt my only solution?Or am I missing something because I read on this forum most of you can turn sensi off and rip, but with my speed there is no way. It will make a mess.

No snap ring on speeds. Perhaps your ram is to far forward. I would set it back further so it barely "clicks" when you close it. Hopefully that will help.

Is it just barely supposed to click or is it supposed to be as far forward as possible?

I would love to, but then I would have to sand the halo and that would suck. I am hoping there is another way.

Taking off the low rise would be the WORST thing you could do. That would allow more pressure to be put on the paintballs.

This is what you need to do. Take out the detents. I'm not going to go through the 1000 ways to avoid scratching them, just take them out. Press each ball in, and make sure it returns. If it gets stuck, or there is no ball, or no spring that's your problem.

Next, the ram adjustment. When you adjust it, when you open the breech, there should be the SLIGHTEST bit of resistance. When you close the breech, there should be an audible *CLICK*.

If you have a adjustable (reading from your sig), your LPR and dwell are WAY off. Your dwell should be 3 green lights, and/or 1 yellow. Your LPR should be in the 80-85 psi range.

My speed is set up like Ken Cranes from WDP. I have 200-250 input, 17 dwell, and lpr is 50. I have no kick and it is supposed to be easier on paint, but I think something else is going on.

My detents move with no resistance.

Well, that's the problem. They need resistance. How else are they going to hold a paintball?

Those setting are really off. I don't care if a tech set them or what.

I just put it at those settings. The thing has chop no matter how I have it set up. I had it at 75 for lpr 400 going in and 11 dwell. The new settings make it run alot smother. I got these settings from Ken Crane a master WDP Tech one that services Dynasty, but like I said it chops before the settings change.

Where exactly is the ram supposed to go.
