A game that owns airsoft. Paintball has evolved over many years and now has become one of the safest and popular extreme sports out there. Paintball companies have also evolved over the years from the old impulse looking markers to the new slim dm7. Paintball is usually played by all ages ten and up but has mostly seeked popularity by the teenager age group. There are two types of markers, pnumatic and blowback. The blowbacks use a trip sear to trip a hammer that hits a cup seal that lets air through a valve into the bolt and propells the ball. One type of pnumatic markers are the stack tube design that uses a sonlinoid to propel the ram to hit a cup seal and have air flow through the valve and out the bolt this technology is mostly used throuought MOST markers with exception with the spool type markers such as the ion.
Hoppers are what drives the ball into the breech. Anormal gravity hopper uses the force of gravity to have the paintballs fall into a hole in the hopper. Electric hoppers have batteries that ensure a faster feed rate of the paintballs. There are three types of electric hoppers a revy type hopper, a semi forcefed hopper, and a forced fed hopper. A revy is a hopper that is not force fed but has a moter that swirls the paintballs around in the hopper making it easier for them to fall in the hole in the hopper. The semi force fed hopper uses a runway or a path that the impeller shoves paintballs through they are more effective because it does not allow paintballs to pop back up the feed neck. Force fed hoppers are hoppers that use a run way and usually a drive cone that keeps tension on the ball stack.
Tanks are used to hold either CO2 or compressed air which are used to propell the paintball. CO2 is often used bylowend guns or blowbacks since if fired too often the CO2 can turn liquid causing potential damage. The CO2 alternative is the compressed air. Compressed air is just air thats put through a compressor to output as much as 5000 psi. DO NOT PUT OIL IN THE FILL NIPPLE just dont and you will be fine.
There are two types of paintball, woods ball,and speedball. Woodsball is anything but speedball. Speedball is played with air filled bunkers usually on astroturf and is more aggressive and high paced than woodsball.
One reason that airsoft sucks is that it is just a whole bunch of people that are playing army. If there really interested, join the army for all I care. Its basically a sport for people that are afraid to get a welt thats bigger than a dime. Do you see pro airsoft on TV I dont ecause airsoft is too gay its so gay they cant show it on TV.
paintball is cooler than airsoft
