Arrow Need help pls

I need help with my matrix. i bought it used from pevs paintball and the guy didn't have a manual for me and diablodirect is down....so i was wondering if you guys could help me. I was shooting my gun today on my ****ty *** 68/3000 pre-set and i was either breaking or chopping every ball. I did chop more than twice i know that for sure, but a lot of breakage and or chopping. I have the regular matrix reg on (the hp reg and is silver) i adjusted it counter-clockwise till i thought it could go no further...the guy at pevs told me to do that because i was using a pre-set tank..? he also told me to do the lp kapp reg like i would do my cocker, so i did. even after i did that it was still chopping! i love this gun, i was out shooting my hopper MADLY. this gun rapes so much it pisses me off i have to limit my self to bps....11. another thing is what do i set the dwell ( i think thats what it's called..the thingy that adjusted bps that red box with switches) setting to? when i got it, it was set to the first switch on 3, second switch on 1, thrid switch on 3, and fourth switch on 1? i mean i was ripping on this and out shoooting my hopper, that will reduce chopping i'm sure of it, but how would i adjust it to a veiw loader pace? like 10/11 bps. i hope to have this fixed by sunday, btw i have the ardvark bolt mod and the kapp lp reg if that means anything to helping me out.... thx in advance

What colored bolt do you have?

You may need to mess around with the dip switch settings for a little bit and see if that fixes your problems. I think the most common was UDUD (correct me if I'm wrong)

ya, there was a thread about this earlier. the blut bolts have problems with breaking paintballs inside hte breech. Try searching for it, the settings they used should be in there. Try 'em and see what happens

I'm pretty sure it was either DUDU or UDUD that worked out the best.

For the dip switch settings, try:

http://aardvarkdirect.com/index.php?...itches&sflag=1

on the support pages at Aardvark Direct. Every option is listed. I can check mine tonight. I have the Aardy blue also. I have a shocktech on the front of mine, and can turn the pressure down to the point it doesn't even dimple the ball. Have you reset the Kapp?

chopping

Sound like your ingoing pressure is probably too high, or your bolt pressure is too high, and your outshooting your hopper or all of the above. If you set the front reg up right even when you outshoot the hopper the gun will usually just skip(bolt hangs up)....not chop. So I tend to think it's all of the above.
Turn your front reg(under the barrel) up to max....and your vertical reg(the one in front of the frigger) down to 0. then slowly turn the vertical reg up till your gun chronies where you want it. once that is set.....turn the front reg down to a point where there is just enough pressure to keep the gun cycling fast enough. Once you do that, lock it and then readjust your velocity.
Then go to the link deathbymatrix gave you and limit your rate of fire to 10bps. Then give it a try again.......
