View Full Version : What determines the speed of a paintball gun?

Ok so, I used to have a spyder vs2 but some fagg broke in and stole it from my house:mad:

When i first got it, it had tons of problems that were later resolved. Anyway, when we were trying to diagnose the problem i bought a replacement board for the vs2.

I was remembering how amazingly fast that vs2 could shoot and i was wondering if it had more to do with the circut board, or the internals (detents, bolt hpa etc.)

slim and shady

its cycle rate determins the speed so it would be a combination of things.

i guess what I'm asking is, would installing the circut board from my vs2 (which stock speed was 30+ pbs) allow my mr2 to fire that fast (not actually shooting but when you don't have the bolt engaged and u pull the trigger)

no. the mr2 should also be capped at 30
