    where did you score a paint ball gun?

    go to a local shop, don't buy off the internet unless your buying something simple like a hopper or something.

    Correction, only buy stuff off of the Internet on trusted (and highly used, with few problems) sites. I bought my first setup on ANSGear (bad idea for me though, I'm Canadian, underestimated the shipping). The TechPB ( BST is one of the safest on the web, if you get ripped off, well, read up on it there.

    Although it is a good idea to support local shops...

    o.. thanks for pointing that out... I dont have ANY shops less than an hour away from where I live... same thing with playing fields... it sucks.. lol

    guess it depends where you live... some countries i think their illegal. in the US you can 98s at most walmarts... i would recomend though...

    Why, and I say why, did you get a double trigger for a 98?

    It's useless, the 98 has too stiff a trigger to warrant a double trigger. And I don't know why you bought a 14" barrel. Those are just money wasters.

    It's not the best thing to show a new player who doesn't want to spend that much as they are trying it out. They will just be convinced they need to buy all that useless junk.

    Everything else is decent.

    Why not a double trigger, he knows he won't be walking it, but it allows for more leverage with the middle finger instead of the top one. Also it has been proven that a 14" barrel is the most efficient barrel you can have, any longer and the pressure behind the paintball is too low and the paintball starts to slow down, any shorter and the velocity has to be turned up to get the same fps which means you are actually wasting more gas in the process, you say you play paintball, but that doesn't mean you know anything about how it really works. Next time get some facts straight before you go around dissing other peoples Instructables. Thank You

    No, maybe you're right about the two-finger trigger, but the point is you don't need it.

    Barrel length only has an effect on barrel length, nothing else, look up PunkWorks, ask them about it.

    Again, my point is that he does not need that useless junk.

    (and even if it effects efficiency, it would be miniscule, so there would be no reason to get it.)

    Well, I'll agree with you on the fact that beginners don't need these things. They don't need to spend money on this, but instead on paintballs and field fees.

    But he never says to get a double trigger or a longer barrel, he simply shows them in the picture and puts a box saying what it is. Back to the barrel, it is not minuscule, have you ever put a 6 inch barrel on a gun, shot it for a while and then upgrade/switch to a longer barrel say 12 or 14 inches long? The gun will noticeably shoot faster. Which means you can turn your velocity down, this falls along the same lines as losing efficiency when using a cyclone, you can get 800 or so shots off before and now you can only get 600-700 out of your 20 oz. my friend probably only gets 500 shots out of a 20 oz. with his A5 with cyclone. Some people will say the cyclone doesn't change your gas usage that much but it does. I play with two people, same guns one with cyclone one without. Same velocity and the one with cyclone has to change his tank about 200 shots earlier than the other.

    I see your point on the double trigger.

    But, I need to see some physics on if a barrel is longer. Think about it. A longer barrel will have no effect whatsoever on velocity. All of the velocity changes happen at the bolt.The air hits the paintball. If it's overbored, the air will almost immediately go past the paintball. If it's underbored, the air will keep it going. But, but but but, once the paintball is hit by the air, the paintball will keep going the same speed, and only be slowed down by things such as air resistance, blah blah blah. Oh, you say the air will keep pushing the paintball in a longer barrel? No. If it's underbored (or paint to barrel matched), then the air will be slowed down by the original push.

    Again, if you don't believe me, contact Punkworks.
    The only part of the barrel that affects efficiency is the bore.
    If you still don't believe me, get a few cases of paint. Then fill two tanks to the same level. Then do a test. I need proper evidence. And a video if you are going to do it. And use the same marker.

    Also, if you use Co2... that means that if you take one barrel off, and put another on, and there is a change in temperature, your "theory" is flawed. You can't test efficiency with Co2.
