Snowsk5054 order one from kingman, it shouldn't be that much money.

Shootemup a ball detent iss right below your feedneck, and it holds your paintball back so no more then one comes down and gets chopped.

That's basiclly what i said

And Snowsk5054 i don't know what else you could use to replace it. Keep trying kingman. Or ask around and see if anyone has some spares.

O-ring? How would that work? Also with the macroline? How would you do anything like that?

I could see maybe an o-ring because it is flexible. but definately NOT a marco line, too stiff and it could cause a break. Back to the o-ring idea. Maybe if you took a couple of them, cut them so insted of a ring ,you now have a line. then you could stick them in the hole and tape/glue them to the outside of your frame. They are flexable enough that they wouldn't cause breaks, but they could end up being ruined by the bolt pretty fast.

I'm not sure what kind of detents your gun has. Does it have the rubber nub type ones? If so, just use timmy detents. They're the exact same thing. If it's the newer ball and spring type, you'll have to find one either used or from Kingman. I wouldn't try "rigging" one.

please dont give advice if u have no ****ing idea what your talking about. What the hell woud macro line do? What the hell would an o-ring do? Do you even know what a ball detent is. Please never come into any thread and give faulty advice about things you dont even know your talking about


and you probobly had the ball and spring one. try e-mailing kingman, you'll probobly get a quicker response.
