That is excellent, very nicely ergonomic, and the CO2 canister is well incorporated.
The short barrel is fine for paintball, although for looks (and power) when the barrel is shut I'd give it another 20cm (8"). How useful is the breech loading? It looks like it might have been just as easy to load without it.

What pressure do you run it at?

Thank you. I made it short cause i carry so much stuff when i play. I wanted something light, compact an still had good range. For now it is a happy medium, till next time I get bored.

Running it at 95 psi. which is sending the rounds 100 - 120ft with a good arch.

I was wondering whether you used it as a sidearm or standalone.
Not bad at all, better than a standard gun really.
Do you just use nerf balls or do you ever load it up with paint? Maybe even a sneaky paint grenade?

How much does it weigh without the CO2

About 6-7 pounds with co2, 3-4 with out tank on a bathroom scale. I like that it came out with a nice center of balance.

Mainly i just shoot the nerf rockets. First ever was a 3 inch mortar that shot paint filled water ballons. Since paint fields went to no liquid ammo.

I am now to just RPG mainly use them to knock out tanks and bunkers.
Next project will be a nine tube MLRS. One of the fields allow a 15ft radius where they land.
