Re: Custom Marker [TANKS]

My home made marker performs surprisingly well. Luckily for you I've been
playing paintball heaps lately :-) and had some chances to test the
comercial markers abit.
Firstly the range, A comercial marker has about the same range (About 60
meters) as my home made one however I have found that the homemade one has
much better acuracy over that distance. I think it's because my homemade one
has a much longer barrel (25"!! compared to 9") and because the force behind
the paintball is much less and doesn't cause it to stray so much near the
end of it's flight.
Next power, the power of the homemade one is not as great as the commercial
marker. I've noticed that the comercial marker breaks almost every ball.
Where as the homemade one only breaks on solid hits and just bounce of at
anything other than 90 degrees to the tank. But if you increase the psi you
would get better results or you could add a resticter ring (Black O' ring)
inside the barrel that causes pressure to build up behind the ball.
Rate of fire, this is where the commercial marker absolutly slaghters the
homemade one. Commercial markers can fire as fast as you can load them. My
homemade one can only fire every 5 seconds!:-(. You can increase the rate of
fire by using Co2 instead of a compressor or makeing the compression chamber
If there is anything else you want to know I will be happy to help you out.
For my stug I'm going to make another one alot better and maybe even a how
to section if Frank agrees and if it's good enough.
I would send some pictures of my rebuilt tiger gun but my cameras sick :-(
