OK

So you want to know how to chrono your marker, for your own tinkering needs, or you bought one for outlaw games
well here's how

Step1: Got to the safe aria, were you chrono, make sure no one is behind, or in front of the chrono, except you.

Step2: Now bring your guns wrench and turn on the chrono, and clear the old speeds.

Step3: If you have not chrono'd the marker before, turn the velocity screw all the way down, because most factory settings are very high.

Step4: Put the markers barrel tip 2 inches in front of your chrono.

Step5: Take one shot, see if it is even close to your fields limit, if not, turn it up.

Step6:once your around the limit, and you turned it up, take 3 shots, if in the right spot, take a few more shots, just to see the consistency, and if it goes over the limit after a few shots

C02 Users: Re chrono your marker at least 3 times in the day your playing, because the inconsistency of C02. It could be very dangerous, C02 had 15fps+/- rate. You MUST re-chrono after getting fills




Places to buy inexpencive chronos:

www.actionvillage.com
www.justpaintball.com


Hpa and lpa users: You may want to re-chrono mid-day

ALSO: If your marker has a regulator, it will take 3 shots, for it to be at the right pressure.


Some verry strong replacement lenses are:
Vforce tests their goggles with a 12guage shotgun from about 20 feet
JT shoots 1/4" steel balls at their masks at 400 fps.
Empire shoots steel balls ar the lenses at 450 fps from 10 feet for testing.

All the lenses above have not broken at those speeds.


ALL WAYS CHECK WITH YOUR FIELDS fPS LIMITS AND RULES
NEVER GET YOUR VELOCITY ABOVE 300FPS, A PAINTBALL CAN GO THROUGH A LENS ABOVE THAT SPEED, AND CAUSE INDURY OR DEATH. ALSO BREAK SMALL BONES, FINGERS AND WRIST BONES.

Nice write up. I know my first time I was told to crono and when I saw the big red box things I had no idea what they were for. Maybe you should edit your post and include pictures of what the common cronos look like.

At first I though you were asking how to chronograph your marker and I was like, what the crap? Good write up, when I finally had the money to buy a chronograph it took me awhile to get it, I kept blocking the back part where the sensors were and I couldn't understand why it wouldn't work. ;)

Also, don't forget...if your marker has a regulator and you are using that to adjust velocity, or are adjusting it at all...you must fire three shots before chronoing again to give the reg time to seat into the new pressure. If you dont, your velocities will look like they are all over, when in reality the reg just needs three shots to seat, then its solid.

It is a good write up, probably should be stickied for those who dont know how to do that properly.
Oh, and its a good scare tag line, but it would have to be a very old and degraded lens for a ball to go through it.

A paintball will not go through a lense at 300 fps, Vforce tests their goggles with a 12guage shotgun from about 20 feet, and JT shoots 1/4" steel balls at their masks at 400 fps.

At 300 fps, a ball can possibly fracture small bones, such as those on kids fingers.

Also, variance on CO2 is usually much less than 15 fps. On an unregulated phantom I usually get no more than +/3. I have never seen anyone jump from 280 to 310, but I guess it is possible.
