get a dowel or a long screwdriver. with no air in the marker, put it down the barrel to the bolt face. Gently tap it with a hammer. Then when you free up the bolt wash everything up to get the shell out and then re-oil the orings, reassemble and you are golden.

e-trigger isn't cheap. and as old as the rodeo is, you're better of getting a new marker than upgrading it

Accuracy is 90% the paint you shoot, 5% the person shooting it, and 5% the barrel you shoot it through. More accurate? Buy better paint. Unfortunately your $Free.99 price tag isn't going to work here.


Far as shooting faster - You're using a mechanical marker. You can pick up a used Fenix or Blitz for about $100. Considering what you get as far as features and benefits go - you're best spending the money there, than an E-grip...e-trigger..or further trying to polish a mechanical marker to...not be a mechanical marker.

If by market - you mean sales facility - I have no suggestions for you. I'm sincerely hoping auto-correct buggered that up.

This sport isn't cheap.

I'd put 0% on the player. put a marker in a vice and go from there.

Agreed - but you can't exactly bring a shooting platform and a vice on the field. Your shooting stance, accuracy, eyes, astigmatisms, ability to sight down a barrel...let alone barrel length preferences all factor in to this.


I put the paint so high - because...a "marksman" can take a paintball marker..and can miss consistently due to **** paint, but can compensate for a bad barrel..as long as his platform is secure.

Several things can be done cheap/free. I don't have experience with the Rodeo models, but have done a lot to other models and clones.

A few things would be to polish the internals. Use a metal polish or car wax. This is to keep the gun cycling smoothly

Drill out the Valve with a 3/16's bit. This is to keep enough air pressure in the gun to prevent shootdown under rapid fire

You should get a spring kit. Start with the softest springs and work your way up to provide consistant cycling. You could also cut a few coils off your spring and stretch it out back to the proper length (if you do this cut no more than 1-2 off at a time).
This will make your gun recoil less and that should add to accuracy.

For trigger jobs you can experiment with different springs (click pens are a good source) There are also magnet options you can try. Radio shack and harbor freight both sell small/powerful rare earth magnets that are perfect for this.

Other than that just keep it clean and oiled.
