Need a servo/motor and controller for a project

    I am putting a paintball gun into a Nerf gun, and what I'd like is to have the paintballs stay in the rather large battery compartment, and be pushed upto the paintball gun through a tube.

    I thought using some sort of stepper motor or servo and a controller/arduino to control the motor

    Problem is, that since this is a mechanic paintball gun, it shoots once per trigger pull, then resets, so I cant have a motor constantly pushing balls to it, as they would jam or break.

    So I need a way to push a switch (attached to the trigger) and have that cycle a single ball forward, then rinse and repeat per pull.

    Suggestions for motors, controllers, and maybe a simple switch?

    Thank you

    Yes, the trigger will be pulled manually, and then hit the switch connected to the arduino

    And I may have found a switch I can use, though the one you linked is perfect
