Finding The Barrel Sweet Spot 1/4
We are the source for used paintball guns, equipment, and all gear for the supreme, fun battle that is paintball. We have a wide selection of used guns and gun parts, including barrels. If the compressed air is like the heart of your gun, creating pressure to shoot the ball, the barrel of your marker is the main artery, giving you a clear path for accuracy. Everyone agrees a good barrel makes a good shot. A glance at our used barrel page will either make you drool, confused, or both.We’ll take the next few blogs to talk about what components make up a barrel, and what qualities make a good barrel.
Here are some things to consider when you are looking to buy a new barrel for your marker.
The barrel of your paintball gun can be broken down into two, three, or even four piece barrel kits. A control bore is the sizing. If you have a Freak Kit you will have an insert which acts as a control bore. Then there is the tip or the front which is fluted and functions to muzzle the sound.
Most of our used guns come with a barrel, but it can be fun to upgrade and play with finding the sweet spot. For example, the Dye Ironmen Limited Anniversary Edition 2K14 Black and Red marker comes with a barrel kit that included .684, .688 and .692 inserts.
We will continue our discussion of barrels and why they are so important to an accurate shot in our next blog. Be sure to check back and in the meantime, be sure to shop our wide selection of new and used markers, barrels, and paintball equipment.
