New ZR-1 Owner and requisite newb question!

I just recently acquired a gunmetal/red/black Zr-1 witha 1.5 bolt for a song, so I am joining the family. Love the marker, shoots ropes and so smooth.

I did notice this weekend though that I was having problems with what appeared to be barrel breaks at about a 1 out of 30 balls or so rate with RPS premium in Florida (65-70 degrees). While it shot field paint fine, the premium did not and it was fresh. I pulled the detents and it seemed they were worn down a good bit, and 1 seemed to have slight burr which I filed down and hope it will fix the issue. MYquestion is does the ZR-1 use a proprietary detent or is it one readily available? I remember reading that the detents were supposed to last the life of the marker, but I always plan for the worst.

First of all welcome to the family. Sorry to hear you were having problems with barrel breaks. Did you check your paint/bore match? It might have been brittle and if you were underboring then that might explain your breaks. As far as your detents are concerned, they shouldn't wear that much at all. Contact Ken to see if he has any replacements and if he doesn't pm me and I will see what I can do to get you some..

It seems my zr1 has too much kick. I adjusted my lpr and hpr as suggested on this thread. What should my dwell be at? I have the bolt upgrade.

in regard to the questions regarding barrel breaks, paint was about .682-4 and I was using stock barrel .688, paint rolled through it. I used same barrel on Quest with same paint, no breaks in 2 full hoppers. I checked bolt and chamber after each break, no paint there. Paint seems to start at the very beginning of barrel, so I made sure that barrel was tight; no change. Its very strange.

On a happy note, Ken told me to call him directly so he could weigh in on the issue and help. One thing for sure, ya really gotta be happy that Zodiac has such customer service that the guy running the place will get on the phone with ya. Only other company that I have seen to do that is Mike at CCI or the CCM people.

is your lpr pressure to high? what is you dwell at? did you check the barrel for any burrs i know you said you shot with it on your quest but this seems odd.. are the detents working properly.

to high lpr pressure and bad detents can cause barrel breaks. If you are running your hpr at 200psi like some do with the new bolt that might be your problem. To run your lpr at the lowest possible pressure without any fsdo and the smoothest/softest shot you might have to have your hpr as high as 210-220psi. Shoot me a pm if you need further help.

this. had better luck with higher hpr and readjust the lpr. with hpr at 200, I would get a lower fps over the chrono in the middle of the string and destroy a ball with the 1 behind it. chrono would read 288,290,292,288, 170, splat!

this sounds more like a tank recharge rate than the hpr pressure issue

I thought so at first too, but went away at the higher pressure. So no complaints.
