i don't usually do paintball videos, or youtube at all, for that matter. To be honest, I don't post here particularly often, either - I play paintball for the fun of it, not to live out some GI Joe fantasy, so I don't really 'do' milsim. With that said, your thread title got my attention and your video gave me a few minutes of entertainment during a slow Friday afternoon at the office.

A couple thoughts, in no particular order:
-a few people are still making scratch-built brass pump markers, including PPS (who also still makes scratch-built brass semi-autos). RTP has also resurfaced, and is working magic with both brass and stainless steel.
-one of the main problems with fixed barrel markers in the modern day is the paint-bore size disparity. Most of these guns were rather large bore, and paint has been trending on the small size lately. thankfully, newer versions of these markers are available in .680".
-your barrel is ported, not rifled. probably just a brain fart.
-Glenn did the first direct-fed pneumatic semi-autos. :)
-kudos for the lesson in paintball history to what I assume is a generally young fanbase. if we have a care for the future of paintball, we're tasked with showing the game's younger players how to play with honor and integrity, to respect, cherish and embrace the sport's heritage, and especially to recognize the small manufacturers that made this sport great. we're fortunate to have some small shops left, but entirely too few. i strongly believe that these guys, who put so much soul into their products, are the beating heart of paintball. once they're gone, it's just cold, dead, cheap, mass-produced stuff from faceless corporations. play pump, play mech, play for the sake of playing, just play with a marker that was made by somebody who loves the sport as much as you do and you'll have a great time.

that's it for me... 5 o'clock.

Why dose rifling deaden the sound??

LOL, I am a noob in paintball compared to you( started back in 2004), but drop forwards( I never thought) an old school thing. I have one on my A5 and dad has one on his 98..personally I love them.

And is that a bead front sight on your Stroker??

Sounds like a new series to me, I love it. BTW, there is a puddle of drool on my desk after watching this :)

Nice video Tyger, I always wondered what a stroker was. I kinda thought it was a typo for "Stocker" as in Super Stocker.

As far as I know rifling does nothing. I think tyger meant to say porting (the holes at the end of barrels).

Insert something clever here. Preferably something that makes me look cool.

As for porting making your barrel quieter, it's because it's allowing the gas to vent evenly around the paintball, out to the sides, rather than out the end of the barrel. So, while a ported barrel may seem louder to YOU, that's because more of the sound reaches your ears when it comes out the sides of the barrel, while at the same time less is reaching your target down the field.

There is some evidence that this more even venting helps your paintballs to come out straighter (i.e. with less spin), adding to consistency between shots.

Also, check out one of the guns in this video (it appears around 3:20 or so if ya wanna skip ahead)

Its a Busmaster pump w/AGD 6-pack changer. The guy showing it off, Bob, used that very marker as part of the original Ironmen team that won the Masters in Tennessee in 1987 & 1988.


Theres some history for ya!! B)

its not the rifling itself, its how they ported it, Much like the CCI barrels today
They ported the barrel where the rifling was, which made a minature gap between the surface of the ball and the actual port hole.
This acts like a air channel when the High pressure system (infront of the ball) hits the porting, the little spaces allow the pressure to go under the ball, and behind it (where the Low pressure is) this makes the pressure infront of the ball much less. Resulting in a lower "pop"

as less pressure is "popping" into the normal ambient pressure

Awesome video. Makes me miss playing with my pumps.* (Between the knees and back, most days I just don't feel like being as tactical or moving as fast as required to use the pumps on the field I play at.)*





*Kingman Hammer, Kingman Hammer 2, original SL 68 II, Phantom and a later model WGP Sniper.
-95% of people with a flatline think it makes the gun inaccurate; if you are the part of the other 5%, who take the time to sit down and tune it right, put this in your sig.

hmmm now i no what the point of rifling was sapos to be and not the fake kinda. Basically making porting more efficient. Is there any A/C Barrels that have this in it only i hear of are the phantom barrels. hmm i found an adapter to use the phantom on A/c.
