You really need to find out, cause I NEED to have my gun make that sound! Is it the nifty muzzle break? the valve? The tight fit of ammo? Please experiment or test it!

Well, it could be the muzzle brake, but I don't think that it is the tight fit ammo, because it is a .75'' barrel and paintballs are.68, so that probably isn't it, but could it be the air coming out around the paintball in the barrel making a whistling noise?

That's another no-no Spuds....don't kick up old posts. Check the date of the last post of anything you think you want to respond to. If it's older than 2 months it's very likely a dead discussion....unless of course your comment offers vast insight. Otherwise, resist the temptation to comment and move on.

As mentioned above, perhaps you should peruse the rules.

whilst this is kicked anyway id like to add that the whistleing is caused by the hole in the ballvalve when closed that is exposed by he breach port, well thats what i think anyway.
