Why does my paintball gun shoot 2 balls at once?
Usually, a paintball gun firing two balls with one trigger pull means the issue is with your ball detent. And two quick-pops with a single trigger pull means the problem is with your sear or rear bolt.
Can you turn a paintball gun into a real gun?
Paintball guns can easily be converted into the real thing.
Why do my paintballs fall out of the barrel?
Paintballs often fall out of the barrel if they are either too small for your gun barrel, or you have a worn- out ball detent. If your barrel has a large diameter and you use paintballs with a small diameter, they may easily fall out. If the ball detent is worn out, you have to replace it.
Why is my paintball gun chopping balls?
Ball chop happens because a paintball is not completely within the breech when the bolt comes forward. The bolt pinches or slices through the half-chambered paintball. Again, if your loader is not feeding fast enough then it isn’t keeping a stack of paintballs over the breech to prevent them from ‘popcorning’ back up.
Can paintball guns kill you?
Paintball guns cannot kill you instantly, but they can cause injuries or shock that can potentially result in death. Paintball projectiles can travel up to 200 mph. That said, players must be careful with where they’re shooting — avoid shooting the head or the eyes — mainly when players shoot nearby.

Can you fill paintball tanks with an air compressor?
Paintball guns operate with compressed gas— air or CO2—from tanks filled to 3,000-4,500 pounds per square inch (psi). Refilling these tanks requires heavy-duty compressors and equipment. Although compressed air may offer better performance than CO2, few stores have the capability to properly refill air tanks with it.
Can you fill a paintball gun with an air compressor?
Using compressed air for your paintball gun naturally leads to the question of filling your own tanks. Basically, air is free. CO2 is not. With the proper equipment, you can make use of the free air and fill your own tanks with compressed air.
Can you use compressed air in a CO2 paintball gun?
Tanks can range anywhere from $40 to $250. To get as many shots on compressed air as you would that 20oz CO2 tank, a 68 CI 4500 PSI compressed air tank is needed. A general rule is that most electronic paintball guns should use compressed air, and mechanical guns can use either compressed air or CO2.
How do you attach a tank to a paintball gun?
Once the paintball gun is loaded and you’re ready to fire then you should shoulder the stock or air tank of the marker into your armpit on your dominant side. Your other hand should be used to hold the foregrip of your marker. Eventually you’ll have to practice off-hand shooting as well.
