Question Magazines and reballs/rubberballs?

Hello,

I have a Tippmann TPX pistol.
I like to use reballs/rubberballs in my markers, but I can't seem to get them to feed right.
I bought the rubber balls from RAP4.com, maybe these are not .68 reballs?...
I can get a few rounds through the magazine, then they begin to jam, friction?
Solution?

Thanks

those rubber balls have all sorts of issues with even hoppers, i can't even begin to imagine how they'd act with a spring-fed system

Try using some lubricant on the system itself, maybe it'll help; that what I ended up doing with my halo and it worked for a few games before i had to re-apply it.

Do you have a recommendation for a good measuring rubber ball on the marker?
The reason I use rubber balls is because they don't go bad like paint balls, and I don't have time to use the gun very often.

if you get the real reballs, they're going to cause the least problems in general. I'm not sure if they'll work with your systm though, you may want to call or email them to see if they, as a company, know.

Kory, dont post about things you dont know. Youre just not helping and i can barely read your typing.

To OP: Use some calipers and learn hands on, they are a useful measuring tool that has endless applications for measuring small things.
