My view on the Apex.

You can fix this by either buying a set of lapco or some other companies breach sizers. They screw onto the end of the barrel and then thread into the marker. They will hold the paint in place.
Or do what i did, and send the apex into palmers and pay the $15 to get wedgits put in. That will also stop roll outs. Wedgits are three little indents palmers puts into the barrel that will hold the ball in place in the breach.
All in all i loved it on my cocker. Made things a breeze and nice and easy. My only complaint other than roll outs, wazs that it makes the cocker a much louder marker. Normally with my scepter kit all you hear is pffft when i fire, with the apex its a bang.

I am unfortunately going to agree that it does chop. I used to never chop with my apex but ever since I put my egrip with the ape board in it I have been chopping left and right. I still love my apex but I have some investigating to do. I've noticed that the balls arent breaking in the barrel but rather in the tip of my A-5 right by the cyclone feed and bolt. Everything on my grip is factory settings (15bps) so I am not sure what is up. I played this Saturday and had to switch back to my stock A-5 barrel:(...... I still highly recommend the apex though.....

Oh and for the record a barrel CANNOT CHOP. There are no moving parts. A chop is when a moving part cuts a paintball as it isnt fully loaded or whatnot. There are no moving parts in the barrel, like a bolt or cyclone, so it cannot chop. It can break yes, but it is physically impossible to chop a paintball in a barrel.

Send it in to PPS and have Glenn and Craig put wedgits in it.
Wedgits are a GODSEND to all pump (except phantom, b/c they get the same benefit from detent rings) and autococker and PPS semi users. They prevent rollout almost ALL the time (b/c nothing invented by man is 100% foolproof).

I love the wedgits in my super stocker, they are so subdued. They are much more apparent in my blazer though, probably cause they arent powdercoated over.

Contact FL/\ and ask him to make you a UMS apex adapter that'll work with your blazer barrel. Then you get brass blazer barrel AND your apex.
That'd be real heaven.
I plan on doing that for my A-5 sometime this Fall: PPS black powder coated, unported A-5 threaded barrel, UMS apex adapter, and apex tip.
