  • Storing Your Paintball Equipment

    paintball gun, paintball equipment

    The purchasing of paintball equipment is a big investment. When you’re spending hundreds if not thousands on your gear storage is vital for both protection and longevity.

    There are various storage solutions and they vary dependant on your individual requirements. In this post we’ll give you some brief insight and examples of each.

    Paintball Mask/Lens Protection

    Paintball masks can vary from £20-£150+, if your choosing a high end mask its paramount you protect it. Most masks over the £50.00 mark will come with a cloth goggle bag as standard, this will assist with protecting your mask from scratches but there are better alternatives.

    A goggle case will act as a shield protecting your mask from any scratches and dents, with a solid shell as opposed to just cloth. If your mask has an expensive lens you can protect this separately with a lens case, this will protect your lens from scuffs and indents.

    Gun Case

    As your biggest investment it makes sense to protect your paintball gun from any scratches and dents. Gun cases are padded and will cradle your gun maximising protection. Often these will also have loops, clips/compartments for storing barrels, tools and hoppers.

  • What You Need To Know About Paintball Barrels

    A paintball barrel is the section at the end of your marker which the paint will discharge from. There are various types of barrels available and some may simply be down to personal preference.

    In this post were going to take a look at what to consider before buying a barrel.

    Length

    You can get numerous barrel lengths, these usually range between 8-20 inches, research has shown that 8inches is the pinnacle for accuracy, therefore anything more won’t increase accuracy. The best barrel length is probably around 14icnhes. You can still use longer barrels of 16-20inches, this may be desirable if you have longer arms.

    Materials

    Barrels are designed to accommodate the player and their needs thus being readily available in various materials. Aluminium is probably the most popular choice, this is lightweight inexpensive and easy to machine, its ideal. Barrels are also available in stainless steel which is heavier in comparison to aluminium. They are also obtainable in carbon fibre, this is the lightest/strongest material however its pretty pricey.

    Kits

    Again there is such a vast selection its paramount you pick a kit to suit your needs. Kits can include various backs and fronts, insert systems or one front and numerous backs. Carbon fibre is probably the most popular choice kit wise, this would provide you with a front and back. These kits give you chance to optimise your barrel dependant on the game you’re playing.

    One or Two?

    When paintballing first came about one piece barrels were the only type available. However it is found two piece barrels improve accuracy. These allow you to choose the barrel back and different barrel lengths for the front, the barrels back pieces are available in a variety of sizes so you can choose which one accommodates the size of paintballs you shoot.

    Bore

    These range from .698 down to .674, the most common size is .689. You want to ensure your barrel is not too tight for the paint, else the gun will break the paintballs. At the same time if the barrel is too large this will be detrimental to accuracy, which means the gun will become inconsistent.

    Recommendations

    Aluminium Freak Insert - The Aluminium Freak Insert is an excellent and highly recommended product. Changes in temperature can cause paintballs to shrink or swell. This is the only barrel of its type that can match paint size by utilizing inter-changeable sized aluminium inserts.

     AA Freak Barrel – This front will give you a flat shot, some range may be lost but accuracy will be increased. The amount of spiral porting drastically reduces the 'pue' of your marker firing, making it harder for your opponent to hear you shooting.

    Freak Barrel Front - It has been designed with straight line porting which gives a very straight and accurate projection, giving you an advantage over other players. This barrel will give you both a long shot and lob shot.
