I like pneumatics better, but I plan on building a new combustion one for portablitlity. I need an air compressor to fill my pneumatic, and I can't haul that wherever I go. But with a Combustion all I need is the gun and some hairspray.

man if someone could figure out how to make a portable pneumatic, like without a bike pump or compressor, it would be the best thing ever.

For 15 US dollars you can buy a 12 gram CO2 cartridge adapter, which is easy to attach to your chamber.
Here's the link:

<a href="http://www.xtremez.com/paintball/product_information.asp?number=TKCAQCA&variation=&aitem=7&mitem=&back=yes&dept=129">LONG ASS LINK THAT F*CKED THE FORMAT OF THE PAGE</a>

If you cant click the link, just copy and paste it. If your afraid of your chamber exploding under the pressure of the CO2, here's a pressure chart in cubic inches.


Chamber Size (ci) Chamber Pressure (psi)
10 420
20 210
30 140
40 105
50 84
60 70
70 60
80 53
90 47
100 42
110 38
120 35
130 32
140 30
150 28

I have not made a combustion ive only made one spud gun which is my pnuematic but im a paintball guy so im pretty fascinated by the pnuematics. They are also free to refill, no cleanup for the most part, and more powerful i heard.

Combustions are totaly cooler cuz you got all that electronics and sparks and fire and that boom and everything that's cool
you can use clear chambers on em and have em do much cooler things. They are so portable too. Pneumatics may be powerful but unless you get an expensive CO2 regulator or tiny cartridge adaptor and pay like a dollar a shot then you are stuck to a compressor.

thats true but you also loose some range and power with a combustion. with pnuematics you can just use a biike pump if it can handle the pressure.

Have you ever sat there and pumped a gun by hand? If you ever did i'm sure you'd know not to say what you did because in about 5 seconds I can load, fire, and reload my combustion guns (not the Proton Pack - that's faster) while those damn bike-pump pneumatics take literally a minute or more. You get very tired of it. To me that's not worth the effort for as little more power.

well ive never pump a big chamber by hand. I've only used one on my small pnuematic and get about 5-7 psi per pump so i can get it to 125 really fast.

I guess it's just a matter of taste. Allso you can reload a pneumatic realy fast if you have a compressed air tank attached to it. Just like on air rifles. You can have semiautomatic pneumatics and then the reload time is reduced to less then a second. However it takes alot more time to build one, but I like the fact that you can make a gun of the same energy output as .22 LR ammo - I think thats cool. You can have a pneumatic shooting 16mm steel balls at 200psi and thats alot of power. My first so called "spud gun" was deodorant driven though and it took less then a few hours to build including the time it takes to go to the store and buy the parts.
