It could be, but double feeding is becoming a common problem again with modern force-fed loaders. Halos and q-loaders can actually put so much pressure on the ball stack that it will actually push the ball in the chamber out of the way over the detent and double feed. Thats why some modern electros have dual detents.

Yep... thats the q-loaders fault.  I would replace the detent, and if it doesn't help, find a weaker spring for the q-loader I guess...

Well if you wanted to get adventurous you could install an autococker ball detent in the side of the gun as well.
