Detents

One of my detents some how went missing that or it's really worn down. I have a 2010 indy that had the spring and ball detents. Any idea where i can get some of these?/does the indy share similar detents to another marker? don't really have time to dig through the stickies.

Thanks in advanced,
Ryan

I own an invasion and that uses Spyder/Timmy detents if I remember right. Not sure about the indy.

The manual will say which detents are correct: http://www.alienpb.com/_images/compa...pendence09.pdf

Or call the shop: 530.344.1155

Did the work for you.

Pg 5 of the manual:

"Ball detents Dual Spyder type rubber catch bumpers"

i dont think it will be in the manual. 09 indy has the spyder detents. the 10 and 11 use spring loaded detents from the sound of it.

The invasion uses spyder detents.

Ryan, you need to call jack man.

Check to make sure it's just not clogged and stuck back. That can happen to the spring loaded ones sometimes.

Ive also heard of spring detents literally being shot out of the gun after a while. They get stuck like Key was saying, you try to shoot a paintball and it just takes the detent with it.

Never seen it myself and this is the first im hearing of spring detents in an Alien so take that with a grain of salt.

My `10 Indy and my friends `11 Indy also used the spyder finger style detents.

I'm pretty sure they all use the spider/timmy detents. I'd go with the more firm black timmy detents. You may just need to trim them a tad.

Really? I love that about them lol.

IMO, its like most gun manufacturers switching to A/C threads. Makes life easier on the player knowing that most fields will have something they need.

I actually bought some of the old paintball kingdom timmy detents way back when. I still have some. They were blue.....perfect stiffness and they never wore out. I still have a bunch I'm sure. Don't know if they still sell them but those were the best ones I ever used.

I've put spring loaded detents in many guns as well. I have a whole bag of angel style ones that I used to put in my DMs. They worked great. Both have their advantages. I think I still have a box of dye matrix rubber detents as well. I liked those but they wore out fast.

EDIT: They still sell them.

Not in an Alien I'm guessing.
Anyway we put spring detents in the first guns we delivered, but if a player broke paint and didn't clean the eyes before then next time they played the detents would get stuck back and balls would roll forward and players went nuts.
Once it was explained that all they needed to do was clean the gun it was OK. Still, that is when XSV was shooting the guns and even they are "What is going on?" So we made an adapter and went back to using Spyder/Timmy style.
I still have plenty in both designs - so once again - call the shop

I was only aware of Aliens using Spyder detends up until now lol. The marker I heard of that happening on was either a 'Cocker or a Shocker.

Which ones were in the gun when I sent it to you? Do you remember the color?

The transparent spyder ones are crapolla. They shred easily and will even swell up if you leave paint on them too long. You want the ones made for the intimidator/NME. The black and red ones are decent but the blue ones from that link I posted were always the best for me. More expensive but nice.

No matter which ones you use, you'll probably need to cut them down a tad or they stick in too far and get cut by the bolt. I think I used to have to trim off about 1/3 of the length. I'm not 100% on that. I just used an exacto knife for a good clean cut.

Hmmmm I only found one of the paintball kingdom detents and two of the crappy clear spyder ones. The paintball kingdom one is nice and stiff and durable though, I'd get those if you can. I haven't gone through it all yet who knows.

I also found, an alien remains board and LPR pieces, DM5 trigger, a few timmy barbs and hose, a whack of my creed parts, an old angel tool kit, an old bushy in a bag(most of it), an old freestyle in a bag(most of it), some viewloader revy paddles, a whack of wiring harnesses, etek bolt and barrel, various other barrels, G3 trigger, goggles a goggle parts, xsv velocity hopper, and tons of other crap lol.
