Question Rifling???

Has anyone out there used a rifled paintball barrel and do you think it is worth the money to put one on a speedball gun? Im a noob and curious about upgrading my ion xe barrel to one with rifling.

Rifling does nothing for paintball markers. The paintball shell isn't even enough for rifling to impart a useful spin, and because it's a liquid filled sphere, spin will not stabilize the flight like it will with firearms.

Good to know. I will find a barrel i like and stick with it without fussing over the type of bore it has. This forum just saved me a few extra dollars, thanks
