Paintball Barrel Idea

Unread postAuthor: ShowNoMercy » Thu May 24, 2007 6:15 pm

I have been looking around at rifling barrels for paintballs (pb) and I have yet to find a good way to do it. I was thinking of an idea that is like sleeving pipe to make a certain size. Rather than cutting length wise, you cut in a twisting motion down the pipe that will make the inside of your barrel. That will then be put in a larger piece of pipe to make the inside one compress to form a .7 inch diameter. Roughly. This way you have a set of grooves down the inside of your barrel and it will have a stiff effect. Any thoughts on this?

I like it..... no seriously. i dont kno why i never thought of this................ try it, it should work.

no, it WILL work. might pop PB's, but will defiently spin any other projectile........


EDIT: ooo i messed up. i thought you meant cutting groves (all the way through) in a peice of pipe that fits PB's real well, then shoving the cut barrel into a peice of tubing whos ID matches the OD of the PB barrel.... your idea will still work tho......

Ok well heres the dilemma, I dont know what size pipe to use. I was thinking for the inside pipe use a 1 inch pipe so I have room for error, and then encase it in some 1.5 inch pipe. What do you think?

Getting 1" down to .68 could be quite a challenge.

I think you should use 3/4" sch 40 and sleeve that inside 1".

Yes I did look at that, and I thought that it was a good idea but I want to shoot paintballs without wadding. That was discusssed some where else and this way the air would create a spin eeffect and impart that on the paintball, which in turn would hopefully be a benefit to accuracy.

Just use finned projectiles, or buy yourself a real BP barrel.....
nice thing about finned projectiles is that rifling makes them LESS accurate..... and with ball type ammo, (like PB's,) it really does nothing. rifling is really for (semi) cylindrical munitions, such as carrots and dowels (or bullets)

I've tried swirled sleeving to make a tee barrel, but it didn't work well. It may work better for larger pipe, but on mine it ended up with the groove going in fairly strait for about 3/4 of the barrel and all twisting up at the end, even though it was cut with a steady twist all the way down.

rifleing paintball barrels does NOTHING

anyways you could get a perfect rifled sleeved barrel by using a lathe to cut the pipe

You spin the lathe by hand and screw in the drill bit chuck that has the cutter in it.Make sure to watch the indent marks on the lathe chuck,so you don't mess up your rifling.Or you can take a thin piece of pipe and turn on the thread cutter and cut out a spiral of pipe and sleeve it into a barrel.Talk to your shop instructor.He'll know how to do this stuff and probably how to do it better.
