Hello,
I am new to the use of paintball guns. I recently bought the T68 Military version .68 cal marker rifle from RAP4.com and I need help adjusting the velocity. I have watched many videos and have also emailed RAP4 themselves. But neither has helped. I bought the marker for basic home protection. I was trying to go the least lethal way. Because of this, I would like to get the marker close to its max velocity (450 fps). I know how to get to the velocity adjustment, but do not know the procedure of increasing fps.
If anyone has time to explain, it would be a great help!

Thanks,
Conley

Welcome to the forum!

velocity=fps.

you said you know how to turn up the velocity, so you're golden.

might not deter all home invaders(i would choose a real firearm), but I see where you're coming from

edit: or are you saying you know where the adjustment screw is, but don't know what to do with it? turning it clockwise should bring the velocity up.

Thanks for the advice. I am going to be using rubber paintballs and top velocity (450). Considering I will be trying to shoot the guy ( or women ) in face, it is to only subdue him for a few seconds, giving me to time to make contact with him. And if he does have a gun, well.. I've taken a bullet before.

Back to adjusting the velocity, on the RAP4 website, it sais to adjust it counter clockwise for more fps. http://www.rap4.com/...n/velocity.html

Before posting in the forums, I was considering buying a chronometer. Which I will probably end up doing. Now I am wondering, when I do adjust the velocity, each half turn, how much fps will this increase it?

Thanks for the replies.

Conley

this is wrong on so many levels. Closed. Warned for inappropriate content.
This is a paintball forum where we try to promote paintball in a positive manner at all times. If you want home security, buy a real gun and go to a home safety forum.
