Balls surving

Is this because my guns velocity is to high, or is it the barrel. I was shotting the crappy paint that comes with the Wal-Mart pods.

it was probobly because of a bad paint to barrel match, or you balls might have been dimpled, causing them to curve, the problemwas porbobly not caused by the velocity

The Big Ball kinda surved, but its 2 week old paint. I might buy a tear drop barrel soon anyway.

*sigh* and i thought i was the ghetto lazy russian...but that beats it, if your using the stock barrel it's because the the barrel, buy a teardrop or all american (both work well, all american cleans out easier after a break.

the paintball is supposed to get stuck in 3 spots on the barrel and if the ball is too small it well cause it to swerve like you said. make sure the balls arent to big though. pbn has a barrel to paint chart that tells you what paintballs fit which barrel so that will also help you out

i think it is supposed to be both ends a little ways in and in the middle. if it gets stuck like it it supposed to u can try to blow the ball out also and if it comes out easily then its fine. but if u need to blow pretty hard then its too big. i think all barrels and paintball should be the same size. anyone know why there not

Both ends don't work, the front end of the barrel is usually always bigger than the back, just put it in the back and if it fits around the diameter of the ball then its good, give it a blow and it should go through easily.

That's a good point.

the only reason i can think of it marketing; product differentiation. It also generates more revenue when people have to start buying different barrels for different paint etc.

those sneaky bastards.

thats why you just buy a multi bore barrel kit, solves that problem very easily, no money, go for empire 4 piece or 7 piece, or if you have money, go with the Evil Pipe (Don't take freak...the inserts are a pain and the pipe looks much much better imo)

Yah, just buy it from the lady. The teardrop is an excellent barrel, and will def help with the accuracy. If your velocity was to high, then that could cause them to curve. I would suggest having your gun chronoed somewhere to be sure you arent shooting to fast pr too slow.
