APEX/longrange/ball spin barrel for cannons.

Unread postAuthor: ALIHISGREAT » Sun Sep 09, 2007 10:06 am

i was thinking that it would be cool to make a barrel attachment that puts spin on the projectile which would have to be a ball, it could work in the same way as a apex barrel and it could turn so the rubber(or something else) strip could be on different sides of the barrel for different spin.

This isn't rifling, it's hop-up.

Jack was stating to jrrdw that it's a hop-up. Though I think jrrdw knew that it wasn't a rifling, I believe he was just asking if it was any better than one. Which is probably isn't.

Because the ball doesn't go where you aim. :roll:
