When is it time for ACT?

After further investigation into my new marker, I've determined it does not have ACT. I put about 200 shots through it yesterday and it never had any problems. I'm just wondering if/when it would be prudent to get the upgrade kit for it? What should I look for to minimize chopping, either in the marker, or the balls?

Never. It's a low end marker, don't waste your money on upgrades. Play with it until you decide you want something that's higher performance, then get a new marker. Beyond a barrel, HPA when you decide to make the switch, and a hopper (if it doesn't have a Blender, errr, Cyclone on it), don't waste money on "upgrades" for low end markers.

if you dont have a good hopper already that should eliminate chops on its own as having a good hopper will make sure there is a paintball ready to fire every time you pull the trigger so you really wont even need ACT and a hopper will go onto the next marker down the road. only time you might have a chop is when you run out of air and the marker sputters but if that happens, it really doesnt matter if you have a chop or not, cant fire without air

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that makes a firearm better makes a paintball marker worse. They are 2 very different worlds with nothing except a trigger in common
