Have you taken your gun apart recently?  It sounds to me like you are either missing your ball latch or it is turned around.

I have noticed that when you unscrew the front 3 screws to install the flatline.  It will leave the reciever halves loose enough for the ball detent to fall out of its groove and/Or get pinched between the halves. 

 

You might want to take the barrel off and see if this has happened.

Ball detent!  That was the word I wanted to use when I said "latch" lol.

It's called "latch" in Tippmann speak. Either way, that's probably the problem.

The detent is missing or mis-installed.

i took my gun apart after the advise and found that my ball latch was missing. i did take my gun apart after i installed the flat line and i must have dropped the ball latch and then didn't even notice it was missing when i reassembled it, now i just have to find it or get a new one thank you

You must completely unscrew those screws for this to happen, and that isn't necessary to install the Flatline on an A-5.  Just loosening the screws a couple of turns is sufficient, and you run no risk of losing any parts.

I paid $1.43 for a detent for my custom 98 this afternoon when i couldn't find mine.  I could have pulled that out from under my seat of my car.  $15?  That blows.

WHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA?!

I'd tell them to shove it in an unpleasant place for that much!

Well, first off tell them they SUCK as a proshop if a detent is $15...  and then never go there again :P

Remember, he said $15 CAN.  That's what? $2US? j/k. You got hosed, but no worse than here.  Called my local shop, they wanted $6 USD for one.  Just added a couple to the order today when I bought my J&J.  $2 each.

That's an outrageous price, especially since you can call Tippmann's service number and they will ship you one for FREE.
