Indoor Chrony's available??

Unread postAuthor: django » Sat May 23, 2009 7:56 am

Not sure if this is the correct area to post this but anyways, Is there possibly any indoor chronographs for sale anywhere that don't require a light fixture above the sensors?.

Preferably a cheap unit,from what ive seen during my searching online though all seem to be outdoor units and if shooting indoors need a seperate light/fixture that attatches to the chrony.Do the cheap yellow coloured paintball chrony's work indoors?.............

Regular chronographs do not require a special light fixture for indoor usage, they only require the use of lights which do not flicker like fluorescent bulbs. Using a simple high wattage incandescent bulb above the Chrony and the light diffusers that are provided is sufficient to allow indoor operation.

I agree with the others. Just make sure you have a decent light near or above it. I've tested airsoft guns in my basement all the time.

Same here, as long as it's not one of those pesky eco-tubes you're fine ;)

And if the problem still exists (as it does here, probably because of the 60HZ in my wall outtake) there is infrared lights designed for chronys!

You might want to consider the Combro, you can get it directly from the manufacturer here:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Combro-cb-625-air ... 1|294%3A50

The issue is that you're limited to a maximum calibre of around 8mm for safe testing so it's more for standard bore airguns that spudding.
