    Posted: 04 April 2006 at 11:29pm

Whenever I try to shoot the ball it goes nowhere... and then it just rolls out of the barrel when I tip it forward. I have no idea what could be causing this I'm really confused, and any help would be appreciated as I'm looking to sell and I need to fix this.

Oh yeah I'm missing the spring that goes behind the trigger, where can I get a replacement for this.

Well, covering the obvious, does your tank have any air in it?

You can get replacement parts from Tippmann, just call them on the phone.

Check to see if you're missing your ball latch (detent). That's pretty much the only reason why the balls would be rolling out of the barrel.

In case you don't know, it's the little orange rubber piece that goes in front of the front bolt.

Actually, a detent placed in backwards can block proper forward movement of the bolt and fail to retain the ball. So the detent could be there but backwards.

If you haven't opened the gun to check the detent, you're a n00b

or you can just feel it with your finger (with the barrel and tank removed) so you can tell which way its positioned...?
