Problem? Accuracy

I bought the 06 Ego with maniac board, and oiled the bolt and such before I went out to play with the new "toy". First day was excellent gun was shootin on the money each time. Go home and maintence the gun. Well I decided to play with the trigger felt like there was to much space after the time it shot and before the time it shot so I put it where it was like a hair length of a trigger pull. Go play the next day was bring your own paint right buddy of mine bought some cheap ass paint that was denting up when dropped into the hopper. So that was my first assesment of why the balls looked like they were drunk drivers flying in air. Then bought a bag of nicer balls. Still wasnt shooting straight cleaned the barrel and all again. And still not going straight! So I bring the question to you guys, what do you think is wrong? The balls are coming out of the barrel and just wizzin left and right and such not even close to a straightline at all. The distance isnt that far where they are spinnin all over either. Any tips on how to fix it? Could it be something I did with the trigger?

Its not going to be anything you did with the trigger. That has nothing to do with how the ball is forced out of the gun.

Now accuracy can be the result of quite a few things. It could be because of inconstant fps (which does not sound like your case). It could also be bad paint to bore match or dirty barrel (sounds closer to your problem). What I think was the problem was bad paint to bore match. The stock shaft II is a .693 bore. If you were shooting smaller paint than this is your answer. Check to see if it was a bad match and post back.

Another problem could be your detents. If the ego was brand new than this is probably not the problem, but I would still check to see how worn they are. If they are fine than your loader could be forcing the balls too far into the breech. What hopper do you have and what is the setting.

It's cold outside.

And define 'nicer paintballs.'
