Rain X in your barrel

I read somewhere that you can put Rain X in your barrel to make the paintball go out faster... 0?

that wouldnt work cuz it might make less turbulance but not make it go faster, infact i think itll just screw it up.

It might make the same effect as when you break paint in your hopper , and there is paint all over your paintballs. You'll get outrageous spin, and unwanted curve.

The thought behind this is to allow a condition that when you have a ball break if you shoot a couple of times, the rainex and the couple of paintball squeegie the debris out of the barrel. Much like a J&J ceramic.

Don't know if it works or not. Maybe try it and let us know...

I've nevr used Rain X but if it doesnt leave a residue on the barrel (that will then go on the paintball) it should do the same thing as a J&J. Ill go see if i have any and test it out with my old barrel.

It would never go faster, as you have to have it as a set limit. Sure, it might be able to make the ball move faster, so your maximum velocity is faster, however, you need to have the ball going 300 fps or less (depending on your field limit) as it leaves the barrel. Therefore, even if it did go faster, you would have to slow down the original speed to stay under the speed limit.

well if it did that it would atleast make your gun more efficient. But i think the main purpose of it is easier cleaning (and some self cleaning) as medic mentioned.

All this is supposed to do is clean the barrel in the case you have a break.

is the J&J Ceramic the only barrel with this "self-clean" feature? I had one on my tippmann once.. and i liked it alot, but i dunno if thats the only barrel that has that, or if it is characteristic of low-tolerance barrels.

btw, IF this were to "make the ball go faster" as has so eloquently been put, that is the same thing as saying that there is less friction in the barrel thus your gun is a more efficent operating sytem. that said, if your gun recuires less air to force the ball up to speed and out the barrel then you can in turn lower the ammount of gas needed to do the job, resulting in better gas efficency. but, i seriously doubt that it woudl do that. although i am courious as to its effects on self cleaning ability. i don't know that it helped, but i have used bike lubes that contain metal friction reducers(that actually soak in to the metal)on the inside of my barrels, never tested the diff of cleanability tho...

I was asking if it had any acid in it...But I guess not, but if it did it would probably eat away the teflon.

Sounds like a good idea to try especially if you get a lot of barrel breaks. The only problem I can see with it would be if it wears unevenly. You really don't want a barrel with different amounts of slickness inside since it has the potential to cause random spins leading to inaccuracy.
