Get larger bore paint.




Big smile




Actually you have several other options:

  • Easiest is some version of the old-school fingernail polish detent
    • Basically you just build up a spot of polish inside the barrel and it acts as a detent
    • I've had decent results doing something similar with Duco cement
  • If you don't mind drilling into your marker and barrel you can also add a detent to the the SL 68 II
    • I did this to my original SL 68 II and barrel*
      • Figured out how far forward of the chamber to drill**
      • Drilled and tapped a hole all the way through the top of the marker body
      • Drilled a smaller hole through the barrel
      • Installed the barrel and lined up the holes
      • Put a Spyder-style detent on the barrel with the tab sticking down into the chamber
      • Installed a set screw into the hole to hold the detent in place



*Not quite brave enough to drill into my J&J barrel or my new (recently reintroduced) SL 68 II--also the body of the new version is thinner at the top of the chamber and I am not certain it would provide room for enough threads for holding the detent in place
**Didn't go quite far enough so you're on your own for this (it still works though although it will dimple the balls if they set against it long enough.



Edited Addition:  Also try developing some patience and manners.  In the interest of insuring you get the instant forum-related gratification you desire, I forwarded your ban request to the mods.
