The shorter the barrel the less space the paintball has to accelerate to full speed so you need to fire the paintball with more power so it can reach normal velocity before exiting the barrel. A 3" barrel isn't as bad but a 1.5" barrel needs the velocity turned fully up for 300FPS. 300FPS on one of these short barrels = 350+FPS on a regular barrel.
where did you hear that ???
Where did I hear it? Did not need to hear it, we tested it before a game. Same results from a LAW, shortening the barrel = less range and speed, lengthening the barrel = greater range and speed (but there is a limit to how long a barrel can be before it takes away speed and range). To get the same range from the short barrel as the long, a grater volume of air is needer.
lmao, try searching some threads on here.
His state ment is partialy true. As the barrel is shortened, the speed a which a ball travels at a set amount of a air released is greater than a longer barrel powered by the same blast. Barrel lenght = friction. Friction = speed decrease.
