Are detent covers really that neccesary?

Hey guys, I just bought a used azodin kaos pump, and it is missing a detent cover. It it really worth it to spend 15 bucks on a new set, or could i just put a piece of tape over it or something?

Thanks

If you don't have a detent, then you are going to have paintballs rolling out of your barrel unless you underbore you barrel. With a pump, you could probably underbore (that is what you do with autococker pumps), but it is better to use the gun with all the parts on it.

He is saying covers. not the detent itself.

usually you need them so the detents dont fall out aswell. Other wise with no detents, like said before the balls will just roll out of the barrel

They're $15 dollars, I suggest you just buy a set.

Keep the detente in and keep the covers on and all your worries will disappear.

Unless you're having a problem you probably don't need them.

Detents don't do anything without the cover keeping them pressed into the detent hole. I have a PMR and lost one of the covers during a game. I lost the cover, screw and detent "somewhere". I got a piece of masking tape from a ref and covered over the hole a couple of times and kept playing. Of course I was slightly under bored so it was not a huge issue. I suggest having detents and covers. They ARE a good idea.

You could probably find cheap detents in the b/s/t section.

Its all around better just to spring for the cover, you don't want to show up to the field with a ghetto looking gat. Get the detent cover and you will be much happier with the cover than tape. Have fun on the field.

The detents on a KP don't prevent roll-outs, but they do prevent double-feeding. If the cover is missing, i'm guessing the detent behind it is missing as well. If you've still got the other side of the detents in there, you might be ok, but i suggest getting the other detent & cover when you can.

It is definately worth the $15 for a set why worry about the tape falling off and taking the detent with it? It will prevent alot of headaches in the future and maybe even prevent an in game crisis. Without a detent the ball could possibly roll out especially with a pump if you are not underbored

I saw a guy using his Azodin pump today and he had no detents at all, it didn't seem to bother him. The barrel has a little groove at the end where you can put an O ring on, and that serves as a detent.

Normally on semi automatic markers, the detents are a must have.

You don't need them, but for 15 bucks you should get them. I've never seen anyone have a gun malfunction because they didn't have detents

if you're cheap enough to not buy some, gorilla tape will hold 'em in for a while, just don't plan on being able to re-use the detents when you do buy covers. Also, make sure you have some good gunk remover, cause that stuff leaves residue from HELL
