LV1 Ripping Through Detents?

I have a LV1 and absolutely love it. I've had no problems at all since I've had it except that I've gone through 3 sets of detents now.

I just played an NCPA event yesterday and noticed right before a point that paint was just falling from the barrel. I looked later and noticed that my detents had been worn out and ripped again.

Is there any suggestions on making sure this doesn't happen again or is this just a common occurrence?

Does not seem typical at all but what kind of time frame are we talking? Those little rubber detents are pretty damn tough.

Are you oiling the bolt or running it dry?

QFT my Detents are tough as hell but the one time I had issues was with the battle swabs that have the squeegee expanding end, they ripped a detent on occasion. I just use a fuzzy swab and all is fine

Shoot reballs often? I've torn up detents on both my lv1 and etek4 after just a couple pods of reballs.

I shot quite a lot so I figured it had to do with that and I oiled the bolt that morning.

However I do use the exalt barrel maids when playing too

I mean I suppose I used to change my Ego detents once or twice a season when I played a lot. I haven't had to change my LV1s detents yet but I also don't play nearly as much as I used to.

Good morning,

Sorry to hear you're having issues, it does seem a fast rate to be going through detents if I'm being completely honest.

A couple of things I would check:

Fluffy / Swab - Could be causing an issue, possibly worth swapping just to see if it helps to resolve the issue.

If you can put 2 small dabs of oil on the side of your bolt that passes past the detents, this could also help preserve the life of them and possibly solve your issue.

Obviously this will be a bit more of a long term scenario to see if the above has worked but if you have any other questions or need help please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks

TomO
