View Full Version : My J&J14 too tight?

03-01-2009, 11:26 PM

I just got my new J&J14'' for my Spyder and I try it 2 days ago.

First, when I drop balls in, they don't slide, they block. But, when I shoot, its ok, they don't break (no break on 400 shots).

My balls curve a little bit, I have a really good afternoon (20 kills in 8 games, 1 turn of 8 kills on 8 persons!)

But, its normal that my balls are so tight? What can I do to prevent from curving?

Thank you

your paint is too big for your barrel. what are you using?

tight balls are always a problem lol. but seriously, if you can't blow them out with little effort, get a smaller bore paint.

^ They're right youre bore is too small for you're paint, seeing as your using a ceramics you're either going to have tp purchase a barrel kit with different bores, or buy a whole bunch of 1 piece barrels in different bore sizes, or find smaller bore paint,whatever floats your boat, and as for the curving, ive noticed that with my un1tech barrels the balls curve to the right after approximately 150 ft. im guessing its a normal thing.

slim and shady

I disagree, if your bore was too small it would break the paint in the barrel. What you want is to put the paint in the barrel and it not to slide through, blow the paintball through with air from your mouth im sure it wont require much effort. you want a nice tight paint to bore match for accuracy, since you never broke a ball I would say you got it.

good. Anyway, I'm playing in paintball's centers, so I don't have much choice of paint. Since I'm member, I've got the better quality for the same price...

But, something I can do to help from not curving? I don't know, change striker, spring kit (±, in 10 balls test, I shot 287 all the times at paintball field), ...

Yeah, its just a paintgun, it can't shoot straight totally, but...

Finally, someone know here they have big deals on O-ring and all? I check on ebay, a couples of shops, but I don't know really what to buy...
