Hey everyone, I'm new and this is my first post (my thanks goes to admins for validating me) and I'm not sure if this should go in the Mods section because I'm using modded darts but please move if needed.

I am currently using Converted Tagger Darts in my LS (because they're cheaper than Streamlines) but once in every two or three clips or so the dart will jam up in the LS. I opened it up once to unjam the thing and found the dart doubled over and jammed into the barrel. Is anyone else having these problems or is it just my dart/clip/LS?

If you have not modified your clip, you have not decreased the length of yourt darts, and the dart tip is no wider than the rest of the dart, it's most likely just the LS. Sometimes breeches jam. One out of eighteen darts isn't good, but it's not debilitating either.

I'll assume you haven't opened it up:

It is because the extra weight of the front of the dart is tilting th back end up a bit, so it the tail gets caught on the bolt as it comes forward.

Your clip:

Put a small portion of craft foam on both sides of the clip walls. It will keep the tail of dart from pushing up into the wrong portion of the bolt.

OR, put a VERY small amount of weight on the end of the tail. A thin amount of light glue.

If you are storing darts in clips the darts will deform, I have seen this happen quite a few times.

Well I've done the basic mods on my LS (AR, stuff like that) and I haven't done the superclip mod, so it probably is my dart. I'll play around with the darts a little bit and see if I can get them to work...and I'll stop storing my darts in the clips (I usually leave them in there just in case I get ambushed). Thanks a lot for the advice!
