first i must say hello to every one

and second to ask one very important question.. how do i clean a choped ball out of a Custom Pro E (from what i can tell its a hopped up 98 custom) ? you see recently i got it in my head to incress the ROF on the guns grip( not relising that an electronic hopper was the only sane way to prevent chops while doing this).  so after a quick 5 round burst i looked at my barrel and to my suprise noticed that there was paint coming out of the ports. now i have just relised that i have no idea on how to clean my gun past the barrel and the place where the ball rests.

sorry for any spelling mistakes or if this is a question repeat

You've actually got a little bit more to clean up than you think. You probly chopped the ball which means you also have the breech to clean up as well.

If you are on the field and you get a break you can use a squeegie to clean it. When you get home run hot water through the barrel to clean up the paint and any gelatin residue.

Next, use your thumb and press down on your front site. The hopper elbow shoudl hinge away from the body. Cock the gun and use paper towel to clean out the breech.

This is the easiest way to clean it up without taking apart the whole gun. Obviously diassembly is the ebst way to clean it.

Taking the gun apart will get it all out.
I Have a B2K and a 98c.
