yeah but solonoid requires presure to operate, thus restricts constant flow, and the speed of the valve opening doesn't matter that much on an mg. so Im not sure if its worth using the valve on a paintball mg

wow...does a solonoid really open up that fast to get the diaphram up?! or is a blowgun better? i really have never acualy "seen" the solonoid work in a vid lol. well..till now :D[/quote]

yeah its the fastest type of release for air....it magnetically jams the solenoid open extremely fast...

No, a solenoid is not the fastest release of air. You've said this on a bunch of topics, and it's not true. The bigger the pilot valve's flow, the faster the piloting of the sprinkler. A blowgun will open the valve at least twice as fast, a 1/4" ball valve is even faster.

you're right....sry i meant to say that the Electric opening of a solenoid is the fastest way to open it (just the soleniod) rather than the mechanical opening of the solenoid. Thanks

Guys, why to use so long barrels? the first eight inches can already give you a good aim, barrels with something like twelve iches are nice, and very comfortable too!

In Australia, you cant just walk into a shop and buy paintballs, and the places you can usually make you buy bulk (1000 at a time, at a cost of about $225). At least I think you cant just buy them from paintball arena's because Paintball markers are classifyed as firearms in my state, so logically they dont sell to people without markers e.t.c. blah blah blah.

The point is you could go to an indoor paintball joint and get 1000's of unbroken paintballs from their dumpsters. Free. As many as you are equipped to take. Of course, there is the problem of some which are damaged, some hard and some brittle.
