Anyone who thinks theres that much recoil and vibration with a paintball gun deserves to be shot... The only gun this might have use on is a Tippmann Effect 98 Custom with an Ape board. Those are vibration/recoil monsters.

Ok, THAT'S what that thing is. I saw a video of a tournament (not sure where or what league - only that it was raining) and several of the players had those on their barrels. I had NO clue what they were for!

Hmmm, don't think it's going on my Christmas list, unless someone can give me a very good reason (better than what's already been stated) for using one...

seriously... it's been bothering me too. I felt number 23 insanity coming on.

yes I know...

These products really do work on firearms and archery equipment because I've tried and still use them. However, I think on a PB marker...especially the high-enders as seen in the vids...it's a bit ridiculous. I mean really...my upped Ion has like no recoil at all and the high-enders are just that much better than mine. The paint-to-bore match is more important to accuracy than the slight vibrations a marker may experience at the barrel...It just begs the question: "Why? Seriously...why???"

Now I also know that there are recoil buffers for AR-15s, AKs, SKSs, .45 ACPs and other firearms made this material. I'm not talking about recoil pads added to the stocks...but systems that are actually put into the receivers around recoil springs and behind the carrier bolts to absorb that rearward recoil. I think if they created similarly small wafers or washers to put at the back-plates of stacked-tube blowbacks...or a donut that fits in front of the valve...THEN I could see it having some measurable difference in performance.

But on a barrel?.....really....

i saw this thread last night, and was struck by so much noobitity (yes, i just created a word!) that i couldnt find the energy to post...

the ONLY practical application i see would be for paint cannons.. oh, and druid, i didnt know they made them for rifles, i thought they just made them for bows.

we had one of these at the shop we got in the mail to show. It is not worth anything. doesn't work like it does on a firearm or bow.

I have them on my Bow...they work great...this for paintball is a stretch and a half...I vote paintball gimmick product of the year!
