It's usually a spring or solenoid operated hammer that physically knocks the valve open for a split second to release a small amount of gas from the reservoir.

You can see a good animation of how it works here ;)

Normally series 7000 aluminium actually. Depends on the marker. You must understand it takes a lot of machining to make a paintball marker.
