Why does my paintball gun rapid fire?
Basically, a rapid – fire or double- fire issue can happen due to a problem with any one part: the ball detent, sear, bolt, and O-rings. Usually, a paintball gun firing two balls with one trigger pull means the issue is with your ball detent.
Do paintballs really hurt?
It’s very common for players to feel a slight sting, similar to a firm flick on the arm. The pain is minor and typically fades quickly. While most hits are insignificant, a paintball can cause bruises and welts. The severity depends on the speed of the ball, the distance the ball travels, and where it hits your body.

What’s the average FPS of a paintball gun?
The average paintball marker can shoot 300 fps, or slightly below this. Most paintball playing fields require a maximum of 280 fps for safety purposes. With an effective range of 80 to 100 feet for the average 280-fps marker, a paintball can reach its target in about one-third of a second.
Why is my paintball gun leaking air?
CO2 in a gaseous form creates pressure to allow for the high-speed firing of a paintball gun. Gas may leak because of a broken gas insert seal, or the air source adapter (ASA) is not screwed correctly. You can fix this by making sure the O-ring is intact, the ASA post is in place, and the parts are well-lubricated.
Can paintballs kill you?
Paintball is a very safe sport, but the short answer is yes, there are several confirmed cases of people who have been killed while playing paintball and some anecdotal stories. Overall, there have been very few deaths from paintball and most of those have been related to carelessness or indirect causes.
Can a 13 year old play paintball?
While it completely depends on the individual child, it is generally recommended that ages 12-to 14-years- old is the proper age to begin the sport of paintball. Most children at that age are able to understand and abide by the safety rules while still enjoying the game and not overreacting to getting hit.
What hurts more a BB gun or a paintball gun?
After talking to many different airsoft and paintball players, I assessed which sport had more pain associated with getting shot. What I found: paintballs hurt more than airsoft BBs. Actually a LOT more. Both airsoft and paintball guns shoot around 300-400 fps.
Do paintball guns have sights?
Sights are wholly unnecessary in paintball. You can sight down the side of the barrel as, or possibly more accurately than by looking over the top. Paintballs don’t fly very straight, or very far. Back in the day all paintball guns had offset feed tubes.
