Hi everyone! Was just wondering what you would consider to be a normal amount of chop paintballs for 1000 rounds. I had about 3 chops with that. I don't the paint I was using was crap or what. What do you guys think?

if it was somewhat cold out dms are known to break paint a little more. 3/1000 doesnt seem out of the norm to me...

"You can't break a man the way you break a dog or a horse. The harder you beat a man, the taller he stands. To break a man's will, to break his spirit, you have to break his mind."

Like Jelleyfilled said 3/1000 doesn't sound to bad to me.

Were they chops or barrel breaks? Those are two very different things...

If it WAS chops, check your detents.

Too often I've had people complain about the marker breaking paint only to find them using hot box or not knowing their fps.

My fps was around 280 and it's wa about 50 degrees that day. When checking the detents. What should I be looking for? Also I believe they were chops because the eye pipe had paint on it

I use hot box every week and don't even get barrel breaks. :P

I'd say check your detents, it might of just been the paint though.
Just make sure they don't look worn down, and that they are still round.

50 deg is threshold for some paint but it should be barrel breaks then. Like others say, check the detents.
